The Friday Five: What's in a name?

If you are a regular reader of Songbird's blog, you know that "The Princess" has requested a new name. Her older brother changed his "secret identity" a while back and now this lovely young lady is searching for a new name on her mother's blog. This got me to thinking. How do we come up with all of these names? There must be at least a few good stories out there.

In honor of the Princess I have posted a picture of one of my favorite members of fictional royalty, Robert Munch's "Paperback Princess." She is a brave young woman who doesn't need anyone else to fight her battles. And she knows that what is most important isn't tiaras and finery but what's on the inside. If you haven't read this little fairy tale, I highly recommend it. But I digress.

  1. So how did you come up with your blogging name? And/or the name of your blog?
  2. Are there any code names or secret identities in your blog? Any stories there?
  3. What are some blog titles that you just love? For their cleverness, drama, or sheer, crazy fun?
  4. What three blogs are you devoted to? Other than the RevGalBlogPals blog of course!
  5. Who introduced you to the world of blogging and why?
Bonus question: Have you ever met any of your blogging friends? Where are some of the places you've met these fun folks?

As always, we want to read what you have to say. I will check in at least once in the morning before getting in my car to drive home from a business trip. But I promise to read everyone's post when I get to my own little house.

Here are the instructions for the magical little link. Copy and paste the following: <a href="the url of your blog post goes here">what you want the link to say goes here</a> For a complete how-to, click here.

  8. Well, that took a good while, but what a fun play that was. I had a hard time considering some of the blogs that are not RGBP that I am devoted to - since most of my devoted blogs are RGBP blogs!

    Well, enough blathering.. here it is.

    Peace and blessings to all!

  18. This was a fun one. I can't wait to see what others like to read. But it took me a loooong time, what with linky fun and blogger goofy messing with my formatting. I'm lucky the baby kept sleeping.
