What's in a name?

I've never been very creative, to the point of picking really stupid titles. Like the former title of this blog. It was terrible. So, at the insistance of a friend (NEB), I've changed the name. I even used her suggestion (refer to the first 5 words above). You can thank me later.

I vote for #2. It just seems appropriate for some reason...

Although #5 has a nice ring to it too...

I prefer #1 for the local flavor, although I don't think it covers the content. Maybe #8 does that better.

Well, Spirko's Sparks was a step in the right direction, but I must confess it was the first thing that popped into my head and not in any way the product of creative or intentional thought. Thus, one of the illustrious choices in the above list would likely be much more suitable.

I much like #2 also, as it would be distinctively yours- unlike the other suggestions, which would generically title any number of geek-blogs out there.

I think I liked the old name... It sounded so much like Jeff, I could have almost called it a "Spirkism." I even took it as a model when I chose a name for my journal.
