What's In a Name?

As I come to the end of almost six months of blogging, I was given a challenge by my blogger daughter.  She suggested that I might want to "spruce up" the name of my blog rather than keeping the (should we say banal) present name of Deacon Neil's Blog.  When she began her blog she asked her friends to suggest a name that would include the word "grace."  She came up with Grace Lines, a good name for what has become a great blog.

So I'm going to do the same.  I'm going to ask my readers to suggest a new name for my blog.  I do wish to keep the word deacon in the title but beyond that, what suggestions might you have for a new name?  You can let me know by e-mailing me at:

I look forward to hearing from you and I will be glad to let everyone know who suggests the name I will choose.  This has been a good experience for me and I would like to continue to share my thoughts about a variety of subjects.  Thank you for taking part in my seach.  God bless!


  1. Does the winner still get a free lunch??, seriously--I sent you some ideas in reply to your e-mail, and I'll think up some should post the different ideas, when you announce the winner!

  2. Hi!
    I've had the same thoughts about my own blog. It started out as a "book club" blog for a few of us in the family. No one blogged about the books, so I just started posting... and enjoyed the process.
    "Calm Energy" is more about the authors we were reading at the time, and not necessarily one I would have chosen for the long term.

    I've read that a blog name should reflect in some way the expected content. Have you decided on an overall theme to your posts or will your topics be eclectic?
    The one title that keeps coming to mind is:
    "Neil's Notes on Life"

    Good luck!
    {My favorite blog title belongs to a friend in Vancouver: "Bluebird Notes" The title alone makes me want to visit!}

    Enjoy this sunny day!
