New Name!!!



I want help with all of you on a new name.
I know this is SUPER early, but I wanted to get my thoughts out there now, before I forgot them.

I don't want to keep my name. Jon thinks this is his last, so I  don't want to be counting anymore. I still would like a 3rd eventually, but I want a more permanent name that could still grow.

Here are my thoughts!!

Mommy Of 2 Crazy Monkeys
URL: crazy-monkeys.net (it would send you to the new domain)

Mommy Of 2 Little Monkeys
URL: mommyslittlemonkeys.com (again it would send you over)

Mommy Of 2 and Crazy
URL: crazy-mommy.com (Again it would redirect you)

So these can all be updated, but the URL can stay the same!

What are your thoughts?

I think I like the Mommy Of 2 Little Monkeys best. It doesn't have crazy in it and just fits the family as it would be.

So I just looked, Mommy Of TWO Little Monkeys is taken and the URL is the full blog name. But I'm wondering if I could still do it with my half name. I don't know. Or I could do Mom Of 2 Little Monkeys. OR Mommy Of 2 Monkeys

Suggestions From readers:
Mommy's 2 Little Monkeys
Mommy Knows Best
Mommy's Favorite Things

I agree with you! I like Mommy of 2 Little Monkeys the best! I am in the same boat as you... I will be changing my name to 'And Then There Were 5...' when we have another baby! :)

Good luck!!

New follower here from the blog hops! My vote is Mom of 2 crazy monkeys, you don't want it to be too close to other blog titles. And we all know how "crazy" life with little ones can be-LOL! Congrats on getting married this year, looking forward to reading more about it!

I love your blog. I am going to be really honest and hope you don't hate me, though :). I don't like the "mommy" names. I guess it stems from my time on message board where every other screen name is "mommyof___". I don't have anything constructive, though. I'm terrible at naming things!


Skye said...

I dont like monkeys in it at all...
but i dont like crazy either. lol

I was wondering just last night what happened with bloggers with the number of children in their name have more children. Now I know!

Hopping from the Alexa Hop. Please visit my post at http://theoldblockhouse.blogspot.com/2011/04/wordless-wednesday-newest-nephew.html

Visiting from the Alexa Hop. Are you sure you want to keep 'Mommy'? I ask as there are so many blogs with 'Mommy' in the blog name. What if you went with...mothering my monkeys. Your kids will grow and not be little for long, which limits your blog name too where you'd need to change it again down the road. Personally, I would want a blog name that differs from others so mine would stand out from the rest...(only my opinion).

I had the same problem when I started blogging.

Valerie @ My-2-cents said...

I like Mommy of two little monkeys as well but I have seen a lot of blogs lately with Monkeys in the name. I think you can come up with something more unique. ;-)


Heather M said...

I'm sure I can. Thanks for the input. I have a LOT of time still to come up with something!!


addictedtocloth said...

I would go with something that is not even remotely like anyone else's name...just my two cents!

Good luck with the name. When we have children we are more than just mums so how about something which captures your essence.

Just stopping by from the Alexa Blog Stop. Have a great weekend.


Melissa said...

Crunchy Frugalista said...

I like the Mommy and 2 little monkies! I can't say how neat it is to meet another "crunchy" mom. that is why my blog is called Crunchy Frugalista. A lot of people didn't get it. I found you from the Alexa hop. I hope you find a new name, and I can't wait to read more!


Mama Chocolate said...

I like Skye's suggestions...I think it's always better to keep the number of your kids out of the blog name...leaves you room to expand your family without having to change your blog name again!

Stopping by (a little late!) with my Alexa toolbar! ;-)
