One-Word Names...

Did you ever want to have a one-word name? You know? "Prince" or "Beyonce" or "Screech" (OK, that one sucks) Wouldn't it be cool though?

If you've ever thought about it, then what name did you come up with? Did you have any criteria by which to judge them?

Here's what I think...

Criteria #1: The name has to pass the "Moanability Test". "OOOHHHH, (insert new one-word name here)! You feel soooo gooooood!"

Criteria #2: The name has to be one that is instantly recognizable as uniquely yours. "Prince", "Beyonce", "Napoleon" (the emperor, not the dynamite - OK, that one no longer works because of said criteria), "J-Lo", "Oprah", "The Donald" (technically two words, but still in the realm of one-word names).

Criteria #3: You could live with it. My best friend growing up had the coolest one-word name (yeah, an 8 year old - go figure!), but after a while, like Junior High, he would literally kick your ass if you called it to him anymore - he couldn't live with "Boogie" past a certain age.

Criteria #4: Consider the meaning - very well. Remember about 15 years ago and we were all watching "Growing Pains" on TV? Remember Mike Seevers best friend? Yeah, that name worked 15 years ago on a "family show", but would NEVER get past the censors today. That's right, I'm talking about "Boner". LMAO. Can you imagine having a friend named that? Go ahead and toss out some test phrases to "Boner" silently in your head. Yeah. Wouldn't work. Be funny as shit for everyone else. But wouldn't work.

OK. Which one did I pick? Have I built the anticipation level?

Just call me Rhombus...

I could see that name passing all four of the criteria. We'll sign you up for that one,
