I was asking for something specific and perfect for my city,
Whereupon, lo! upsprang the aboriginal name!
Now I see what there is in a name, a word, liquid, sane, unruly, musical, self-sufficient;

(from Walt Whitman's poem - Mannahatta)

After exactly five months of writing on my blog, i have made some amazing friends, passed the 100th post mark and finally feel settled in my tiny corner of blog world. I have also started producing a steady flow of work... and i now feel that i need to change my name. Its important for me as an image for my work when i go to sell it and i dont think that 'handmaid' is right. Any ideas?

    Finding a name is though. Many times the best ones come when we are relaxed and not thinking about it.
    I will let you know if I find something as beautiful as you.

    a name is a very important thing, huh?

    i think you will find the right one... as paula said - just let it come to you.... [but if i think of something i'll let you know!]

    If I think of a name, I'll let you know too.

    Cheers, LJ

    That's as difficult as to come up with a 'short nordic name for a baby boy' as my sister has asked me to... Names. They are all and nothing at the same time... I guess you are keeping us all thinking for a while, Julie.
