Pehla baccha hai….accha naam rakhna padega! LOL!
This was the exact thought in my head when I was looking out for an apt name for my….err…baccha.
And believe me (or not), it took me almost a week to finally choose something unique and catchy.
To be honest, some of the blogs that I religiously follow have out-of-the-box, whacky names…so I had to activate my think tank to get something hatke out of it…
“How about Tattletales?” I pinged my sister while she was at her workplace.
Now a quick detour. I was watching FRIENDS Season3 Episode4: Thanksgiving Lightning Confessions.
I think you got the gist of what I’m trying to say here!
After an hour she replies “You know what it means right?”
I quickly replied, ”Yeah” (rolling my eyes) and sent her this too.
She plainly replied, “Think of something better”
Now…I always had this fascination for the word ‘Fernweh”. Its a beautiful German word that means ‘longing for a distant place’ or simply….Wanderlust.
And just to give it an Alliteral effect, I suffixed Fernweh with ‘Flutters’.
Fernweh Flutters. Sounds nice
Heading to the Approval Department (Mom included this time), which by the way, flatly rejected my proposal citing “it makes no sense” as the reason….. -_-
Suddenly, another German word “Luftmensch” popped into my head.
Luftmensch – Persons with tendency to dream….
I cannot understand my affinity towards Alliteration (Probably it was the easiest Figure of Speech 😛 )
So I concluded…if Fernweh cannot flutter…Luftmensh cannot loiter….
Didn’t even head to the Approval Department….
Just after dinner….My sister asked me, ”How about The Lone Musketeer?”
I snapped back, “I don’t want my people to think my blog is about a single girl who is ranting about her boring life” (Little clarification here: Single life rocks…;) )
But again I wasn’t able to come up with something nice…so reluctantly I agreed…
The very next day, I came across an article in Times Life – Bohemian Embroidery in vogue.
Something clicked. I kinda knew what bohemian meant…some hippie gypsy thing…but just to make sure, I looked it up in the dictionary. There it was, gazing back at me..
Bohemian – An unconventional or non-conformist artist or writer
THAT IS SO ME!!! 😀
My eyes lit up.
I lit up 😀
Okay. What goes with Bohemian…
What does any person with an unconventional way of life face?….Hardships?….or better..Blues?? (See….Alliteration…again :P)
And right there….
Sounds cool enough.
Got it approved too! 😀
Finally my baccha has a name….!! 😀
