I get asked for names quite a lot, mostly by students who are tired of being called David, Ivy etc. It’s a hell of a responsibility. I’ve never liked my name, and you have to find something that really fits the person.
After six months of deliberations I finally settled on Oblio for my pointless cat, but now I have another task. And this could be even more of a biggie.
What do you call something like this? It’s not just some random animal that happens to live with me. It’s a fairy tale creature created specially for me, and needs to be named accordingly. I can’t just call it the first thing that comes to mind, this thing could endure in cyberspace for centuries and I’ll be remembered only as the guy that named it Fluffy.
Any suggestions from the wordsmiths out there?
