I was reading today because…reading’s fun, and I saw one of the characters had MY NAME and I was very angry at the book all of the sudden and had to stop reading.

This is one of those moments where I’m very happy I have a “safe” and mostly agreeable naming style! :joy:

There’s nothing more pleasant than discovering a new plant name. And yet there’s nothing less pleasant than discovering that a flower does not, in fact, look exactly how you pictured it based on the name. Seriously, [name_f]Forsythia[/name_f] has to be large, pink, azalea-like flowers, and don’t even get me started on [name_f]Amaryllis[/name_f]- it should look like goldenrod, not like lilies!

Naturalists seek out undiscovered plants and name them, while we seek out already-named plants to pirate their names.

I’ve always imagine [name_f]Forsythia[/name_f] as purple, or almost like a [name_f]Lavender[/name_f] plant, which is so sad because I think the actual plant is gorgeous, but the disconnect bothers me so much haha

I recently read an article that mentioned the [name_m]Newbery[/name_m] awards. I, of course, read it as Nameberry,

There are two kinds of people…

“I can’t see why anyone would think [name_m]Poseidon[/name_m] is a ‘weird’ name. Totally normal to me”

“I think [name_m]Gavin[/name_m] is too edgy of a name”

(the latter comment was based on a comment I saw recently. Yes, someone really called [name_m]Gavin[/name_m] an edgy name…)

Also:

“Oh my gosh, who would name their kid [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f]? That’s so weird”

“You might want to avoid [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f], it’s getting really popular!”

Life Plan:

  1. Have daughter
  2. Name her Eponyma
  3. Force her to be great
  4. Have her discover something, anything
  5. Have her name it after herself
  6. Eponyma becomes an eponym
