#reverb10 — day 23

December 23 – New Name

Let’s meet again, for the first time. If you could introduce yourself to strangers by another name for just one day, what would it be and why?

(Author: Becca Wilcott)


I’d like to be a Rory for a day. It’s a girl’s name that I love, but I know that I’ll never use it for a child or a pet’s name, so I’ll take it as my “pretend name for a day.” And, of course it’s short for Aurora.

Why? Cause it’s a bit more spunky and crazy than Kim(berly). While I totally love my name, I think I could fit into the act of “Rory” quite easily.

And yes, the fact that I’m really into the names of characters played by Alexis Bledel shold make you question my sanity and my sub-conscious mind. I have no explanation for this whatsoever. And if you venture to IMDB in search of more names, I’ll disclose that I adore the name Charlotte as well (that was my picked out girl’s  name).

    I love Rory! That’s what I named my sweet little boxer pup (well, she’s almost two now, but she’s still a giant snuggling lap dog). This makes me think of Gilmore Girls, and I adore the name Lorelei. Never thought of it being short for Aurora too! Way to tie in your Disney love :)
