Pondering a New Username

weather: light drizzle
outside: 7°C
mood: pensive

I've been thinking about a new LJ username for myself. Here are a few of my thoughts so far, let me know what you think:

  • casta_diva

    Casta Diva is the suprano aria in Vincenzo Bellini's opera, Norma. This is probably my first choice right now, but I'm not sure...

  • la_doyenne

    doyen was a Word of the Day in January. It comes from the French, meaning "exalted expert" and it's pronounced "dwah-YEN". I'm not really an expert in anything, but it's just a username, right? =)

    There is an LJ user doyenne already, she's not very active and hasn't posted a quiz since August. =S At pne's suggestion, I AYT'ed her to see if she's still using her journal (maybe she's active in the communities). It shouldn't be confusing at all if I take La Doyenne. It doesn't look like we'd be involved in the same communityspace anyway.

  • quietude

    "A state of quiet." I just love this word.

  • applejade

    I don't know how confusing this would be because apple_jade is my Chinese journal. It would be neat to have my English and Chinese journals kinda match... but then, it's kinda dorky as well - like when a couple wear the same outfit in public. *ick*

  • jade_lin

    Not very imaginative, but it would do.

pne suggested wifegal =) which is a cute idea, but I think I'll try not to use a "Generic Human" username this time. I was up to my ears in wedding when I created this journal in February 2001 and all I could think to call myself was "the bride" =)

Yeah, names are a big deal to me. I took over a week to name a cactus - I went to the trouble of watching a movie (or trying to watch a movie) just for name research purposes. I think I'll be hosting an International Nomenclature Convention when I name my children.

I guess I could make a poll, but polls don't encourage discussion.

Now everyone is telling me to keep bride =) I guess it makes sense. The very first commandment in Marketing/PR is "Thou shalt not change thy name nor logo."

seditionMy Favorite Mike was the one who told me that it was time to "let go". =P
