What's in a name?

This two scenarios really happened:
(Me meeting up with some bloggers IN PERSON for the first time)
Scenario 1
Blogger/Reader 1: “You had three other blogs before right?”
Me: “Yea. I think you commented on one of them before…My Practical Blog?”
Blogger/Reader 1: “Yea, Top Apple.”
Me: “No…medeardiary.blogspot.com”
Blogger/Reader 2: “No lah, it was Diary of a Practitioner.”
Scenario 2:
Me: “Hi. I’m Mar.”
Blogger/Reader 3: “Yea, you’re Super Soaker.”
*****
From my recent meet-ups with bloggers IN PERSON, I just noticed that readers relate to the NAME of the blog more than the URL…(They also tend to relate more to the posts’ contents sometimes. But no one related to URLs…hmm…)
For those who didn’t already know, before this blog, I had 3 other blogs…
My Friendster Blog [marg.blogs.friendster.com]
My Practical Blog [medeardiary.blogspot.com]
My Blogspot Blog [topapple.blogspot.com]
And with each blog I had trouble coming up with the right name…
My Friendster Blog was first called “My Whatever”…I think…and then a lot of name changes until it settled with the name which I used as the name of My Blogspot Blog at the time, that is The Top Apple – a name which finally stuck…for both blogs.
My Practical Blog began and stayed as Diary of a Practitioner since I was really clear on what I would be blogging in that blog…
But in this fourth blog of mine…I’ve yet to find the prefect name….
I’ve been switching between names for this blog since I “opened shop” last month…at the moment the name’s been changed twice…
So for the time being, I’ll just use the URL as the name…
Any suggestions guys?
