I knew a good blog name was important, I didn’t know it would be so hard to choose, or that doing a search for uses of the name might have been a good idea. Did you know there’s a Daisy Daze and the Bumble Bees band (1979), pretty good actually, you can’t beat a lyric like “I’m a pirate from Planet O”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ay6_a_MGxXI check it out. There are numerous flower shops, perfume and even a non-stink dog collar called Daisy Daze (Dublin Dog).
Daisy means innocence and hope. I’ve used up most of my innocence but there is an abundance of hope (excitement, anticipation, belief) and it’s my favourite flower. Purely simple at first glance but with complexity when you take time to really look.
Daze…the old play on words. I’m pretty dazed about the events of the last week, and I have days and days now to figure out the rest of my life.
Some advice, search all the variations of your potential name, even if it’s your real name. Don’t think that if you aren’t quick enough to decide and register those few words that will now be your virtual identity there is someone else out there coincidentally doing the exact same thing as you at the exact same time and they will TAKE YOUR NAME if you don’t act immediately. That’s just crazy…
P.S. I’m happy with the name; music, flowers, dogs, perfume – just need a wine connection…
Oh wait, just searched Daisy Wine…jackpot! www.vivino.com/wineries/daisy-rock

What do you mean by registering the blog name?
Hi, Sorry for the delay, I have been painting the basement. When I signed up with WordPress I had to check that mydaisydaze wasnt taken, originally I wanted daisydaze but it was taken so I added ‘my’…now no one can use that, it was part of signing up, WordPress registered mydaisydaze.com for me….at least I think that’s what happened.
In our day and times, everything feels or seems that immediacy is of most importance when decision making. I really like the sentiment that you can and should take time!
What a novel concept!
