To Name a Blog…or Rip Your Hair Out Trying

The hardest part to this whole process has been to come up with a name!  Trying to be funny, clearly named, yet eccentric and a little dark…to try not to take myself too seriously, yet not come across as a complete flake…two weeks later, here I am. Edible Noir.

I spent a lot of time looking online for ideas.  I researched ancient words, big words, small words, words in various languages.  I searched for weblogs and entries about name creation, articles about creating catchy names, only to find very little to inspire.

Eventually, after days of intense thought and weeks of considering various words…not to mention texting my boyfriend non-stop with potential options until finally I started getting responses like “Here we go again!” and suggestions such as “Ass-sauce!”… I made a decision.

By choosing “Edible Noir” as my blog title, I am left with literally dozens of unused titles and words that shouldn’t go to waste.  Since it was such a struggle, I have decided to post my unused research, words, sentences, blood, sweat and tears in this post for any other individual who may find them useful and inspiring.  Well, some may prove to be inspiring…the others will prove to be simply the result of a day of laughter and excess caffeine!

I also need to add a HUGE thank you to the many friends who offered their ideas and suggestions.  Not to mention many of the same friends who put up with constant text messages from me for DAYS at a time!
