My Blog Name

I’m always interested to know how names come about so I thought I’d share the little story.

Naming a Blog…

…Is no easy task. I actually got stuck on this step several months ago when I decided to start the blog but didn’t want to do so until I had the “perfect” name.

However, I recently decided that I would not let this step defeat me (any longer!). So I asked my husband to help me come up with a name.

Sensible

I wanted a name that represents me and basically relates to my beliefs, lifestyle, and of course, my blog. With those instructions, Sean sensibly came up with “sensible.” I am quite the realistic and logical creature – I’ve been told.

Dove

No, no relation to the bird! Yes, my last name is Dove, which  is so AWESOME! Hmm … I wonder if subconsciously that’s why I married him. Nah! But I really wanted to include Dove because it represents gentleness and peace and it’s also my name  so I thought, how cool, a little play on words!

However, and  for those of you who never looked up the word Dove (because, why would you, right?), it also means, “a gentle woman,” “one who … advocates negotiations and compromise,”  according to Merriam-Webster. This is also totally me so I added Dove and here we are!

TA-DA! There you have it!
