I've got three very special birthdays to celebrate today! My youngest sister for one! Go Celia!
Since Ellie came without papers I've designated her birthday to be today, March 20th, the first day of Spring! Wilbur rounds out the bunch turning 8 on March 27th.
What better way to celebrate a Birthday than with a contest? I'm definitely swiping this idea from A Gift Horse. Ellie needs a show name. No one panic- I don't anticipate I'll actually be attending any shows in the near future but it's best to be prepared. And nothing puts me into a cold sweat like creative show names so I need y'alls help.
For those of you NOT familiar with what a "show name" is- it's basically just a second fancier name that is used for showing. As an example: Kelly's Albert is called "Party Hat." I might prefer a single word, perhaps more sophisticated name. Like "Huckleberry." Simply because I think Ellie would look good in Plum. See what I mean? Stressful! So many options!
Here's how the contest works!
- Submit your show names now through Sunday March 23 at 5pm PST via the comments below. Two names an entry max.
*** as a logistics note- I happen to know some excellent "namers" who don't have google accounts (I'm looking at you Dad). I have modified my comment settings to include Anonymous comments- so please comment but be sure to leave your name!
- On Sunday March 23rd I will post a poll with all of the submitted names! The blog is open for voting! Vote for your favorite name, but you only get one pick!
- Voting will close Thursday March 27th at 5pm PST and the winning name will be announced!
The winner will receive a bucket o' treats from the fabulous Charleigh's Cookies!
Ellie is such a cute name. It reminds me of one of my favorite songs: Eleanor Rigby by the Beatles. So Eleanor Rigby is my first choice! Second choice: Shining Light, which is what the name Eleanor means.ReplyDelete
My very first name submission! Thank you Lauren! I LOVE the Beatles!Delete
Me too! They're my favorite! :)Delete
Elliegance, Elevated :)ReplyDelete
LOVE! Thanks for the submissions! "Elliegance" is adorable :)Delete
Paying homage to her past Enduring or EnchantedReplyDelete
LOVE "Enduring"- very fitting :)! Thanks for your submissions Dani!Delete
(Explanation: I googled March 20th and that's when the Treaty of Versailles was signed...also it's a gorgeous place/pretty French word).
Versailles is very sophisticated!!! Also learned a fun fact today!! Awesome!Delete
Well I like Eleanor Rigby that was suggested above!ReplyDelete
My suggestion is "Shining Light" - It is the historical meaning of the name!
Love it! Thanks!Delete
My thoughts were Annabelle (longer version of Ellie)ReplyDelete
or Lumiere (french for light)
orrr going off the music theme, Elena Jane (full name of the singer Ellie Goulding)
Ohhh- I love Lumiere!Delete
I'm terrible at naming, but enjoying the suggestions. :-) Good luck!ReplyDelete
Zomg I love the suggestions so far! Mine- elderflower, elevate (ellievate) :)ReplyDelete
Elderflower is so pretty!Delete
Unfortunately I can only think of one at the moment. I really like Elliegance too that someone mentioned above.
Okay I just realized I repeated myself. I was pronouncing them differently in my head from elegance and allegiance. So I don't really have anything new to submit, lol. :)Delete
It took me a minute to figure it out because I was pronouncing it "allegiance" too!Delete
