Hi, My Name Is....

Hi, Cheesy Bloggers!  Angela@BeggingTheAnswer here with this week's spectacular writing prompt!!  Tell us all about your name.  I'll tell you about mine...

*     *     *

Why did you name your blog what you did? 

Every now and then the question gets thrown around internetland. After all, names are important; they turn the vague to the specific, and give life to an otherwise unknown entity.

Also, names can be really funny. Or really stupid. Or really beautiful. Sometimes all at once. Take my inability to pronounce certain words correctly, for example:

A Curious Individual: You blog?! What’s it called?!

Me: Begging The Answer.

A Curious Individual: Bagging the answer?

Me: No, Begging The Answer.

A Curious Individual: Bagging the answer?

Me: No, begging. Like, "This begs the question...." But begging the answer.

A Curious Individual: *blink* *blink* Bags?

Me: Ummm...yeah.

A Curious Individual: Oh. I get it.

Me: This is what I get for trying to be clever.

Don’t even get me started on my kids’ names. At this rate I’ll be lucky if they even let me name a cat.

*     *     *

Now it’s your turn!!! How did you come up with your blog’s name? Or your kid’s name? Or your cat’s name? Or the name of your secret online alias? Come on, everyone has named SOMEONE SOMETHING.

For some inspiration, here’s a little blast-from-the-past. Feel free to cringe if necessary.
