Other Names For This Blog

October 17, 2012 in Uncategorized

Before I launched my blog, I briefly surveyed my friends and family on whether they liked the name OhBoyMom or if they had other suggestions.  I received a few cute names like ‘My3Sons’ or ‘ChromosomeYMom,’ but either the URL was taken or the name wasn’t quite right.  I then emailed my brother, who I knew would have some creative ideas, thanks to his witty (and a little warped) mind.  Here’s what bro came up with:







And my personal favorite:


Great ideas bro, but alas OhBoyMom received the most votes.  However, if any of you mom bloggers of boys are looking for a new name, feel free to use one of these.  Some of them may be a little long, but I’m sure you’ll gain some attention, or at least a few laughs.  I know I did.

What clever name do you have (or did you consider) for your blog or website?  Send me a comment and let me know!

“Cheetos and Wine”
“Elmo, Nemo and Wine”

I actually had a good one awhile ago, but forgot to write it down. I take a lot of pictures so my current “Snaps of Our Life” makes sense. Also, my tech guy told me not to change the name anymore. :)

Beth, Ooh, I love “Cheetos and Wine” but I agree, the name you have now seems like a perfect fit. Thanks for sharing!

I loved hearing how you came up with your blog site’s name. Your brother sounds like he gave some good suggestions though and I am sure someone else with boys could surely use. As for me, I toyed with Just Trolling Around (because I love Trollbeads and shiny jewelry), but ultimately, I feel in love with the title I have now and just used my name for the domain. It works at this point, so I am happy :)

I love your title too Janine! I definitely would stick with it, but yes, it’s always fun to play around with other names.


Amy October 17, 2012 at 2:45 pm

I love those names! I have three girls, so they wouldn’t all fit for me. :) My blog (Adorable Chaos) was originally created as a weekly column for a local news website, so my editor analyzed my suggestions. He couldn’t believe that I wanted to go with “chaos” because he thought that would put a negative spin on it. But there is chaos!!! We went with it anyway. He was 24 at the time, unmarried, etc. It’s funny how different people view a name…
I think OhboyMom is perfect. :)

Thanks Amy…and I think your name is perfect too. I agree that there is definitely chaos with 3 kids, whether we are dealing with boys, girls, or both!

I love the name you chose and the others are fantastic. I never had another thought for my blog name…I’m a housewife…it gives me lists of latitude because housewives do everything! Lol


ohboymom October 17, 2012 at 5:08 pm

So true! I say, when you know the name is right, you go with it…


Stacy Harris October 17, 2012 at 3:55 pm

Since I started writing online, I have always wanted to write under Ramblings of an Undiagnosed Mad Woman… No other name ever really hit me… that was mine. That being said, I never opened up the blog until just recently. I wasn’t sure if I could do the blog thing. Luckily when I finally did, that name was available. I was stoked and to me that was a sure sign it was time to open my blog! :)


ohboymom October 17, 2012 at 5:06 pm

Stacy, Sounds like your blog’s name was destined to be yours — and it’s a GREAT name!


Melanie October 17, 2012 at 7:21 pm

What a great idea to do a survey. I came up with Grab the Good Life for my blog, but registered the domain under another name. Now I’ve had to change the name. I did a survey in BB the other day and got some great feedback. It really helped…will hopefully have it up and running in full by next week. Great post :)


ohboymom October 18, 2012 at 12:15 am

Thanks Melanie. Looking forward to seeing your new and improved blog soon!


Cyndi October 17, 2012 at 10:59 pm

Oh man, I suck at names. I had like 10 failed blogs before I ever came up with one that I like – the Pictimilitude one. They were all boring, drab names. Things like “Brushes, Leaves and Cloth” and “Modern Fractals” and “Cre8tivgirl” Stupid, stupid. I guess after awhile, you SHOULD come up with something that’s halfway all right, right? Hehehe. Fun post! :)


ohboymom October 18, 2012 at 12:13 am

You definitely settled on the right name! I’d say you don’t suck at it — it just took you awhile to get it right!


Michelle October 18, 2012 at 3:04 pm

Emily, here’s another suggestion:

Think that would qualify as the longest address in the Guinness Book of World Records! Thanks for sharing this with us!!


ohboymom October 18, 2012 at 3:11 pm

Ha – I like your suggestion too Michelle! Thanks for reading and your input!


Julie DeNeen October 18, 2012 at 5:32 pm

Great topic for a blog post. I think you picked the perfect name!


ohboymom October 18, 2012 at 10:46 pm

Thanks Julie – love your names too!


Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms October 21, 2012 at 1:05 am

I can’t remember one other name we proposed for our blog. A friend had suggested “Guilt-free Mommying” but I think we can all agree how bleh that is.
Love the name you picked. And it’s short. :) Ellen


ohboymom October 21, 2012 at 1:19 am

Thanks Ellen. I agree that you picked the right name for your blog too. :)
