A Name Change

Micah is currently obsessed with why people change their names when they get married. We have some form of this conversation everyday. Of course he wants to know why it's only women and not men who change last names, although I have some "progressive" friends who both chose to hyphenate when they tied the knot. He was also delighted to find out that people can legally change their name to whatever they want when they get older. He's still trying to decide what name he should choose for himself- Spiderman or Batman. I think Batman maybe the forerunner b/c he has that cool utility belt with the "gadgets." I haven't broken the news to him that the utility belt doesn't come as a free gift with the name change.

I mention that story b/c I'm still pondering a blog name change. I mentioned in one of my very first posts that I wasn't sure if the name I chose would stick. I don't think it is. It hasn't really grown on me. At all. And I'd like something to tie my URL and blog title together better. And by "tie them together" I mean they'll probably be the same thing.

When I first met Jason, every computer thing he did had "sturg" in it somewhere. Sturgpod, Sturgdisk, Sturgfile, SturgMac, Sturgfam, and so on. You get my drift. He's pretty much the Sturgman. It kind of sounds like he's really into himself, but it's not like that. I think it's kinda catchy, to be honest. When I had children, I became Sturgmom and I use that quite a bit on the internet and such. So I think I might go that direction.

I particularly hate it that my whole name is linked whenever I post a comment on someone else's blog. Not that I care who sees my name, but it just feels a bit obnoxious to me for some reason. Like the annoying kid in school who vigorously waves her hand to be called on b/c she can't wait to show up the rest of the class when she has the right answer. LOOK AT ME!!! Unfortunately, I think I was that girl. Maybe that's why I'm so self-conscious about it now. I've mellowed. A little.

So now I'm trying to figure out what to change to once again... And I'll only do it if I can keep what I've already started here, which I think I can. I'll probably end up Sturgmom's something-or-other. If you have any suggestions for the "something-or-other" part, feel free to leave me a comment.

  1. Re: the comment part, you can comment on a blogspot blog with any gmail address (sign in is the same for gmail and blogspot). so if you have a gmail account that's doesn't use your name, then no one would know. (is this coherent? I've only had 1/2 cup of coffee.)
