Well, my wonderful friend Athena is starting a blog and is trying to come up with a name. I told her that I would ask my talented, creative and thoughtful internet friends for advice. So many of you have such creative names --PPPG is fairly unimaginative, but I think fun to say.

She was thinking of using actual her name in some way--but if you think that is not a good idea, please let me know. Here is a little about her:

Second generation Greek American so contemporary and being Greek is only a small part of her life.

MBA from University of Michigan

Small Business Owner (Greek Candles, Baptism Merchandise, Wedding, etc)

Great Mom

She is smart, wise, strategic, etc.

Athena is the Greek Goddess of War or Wisdom (Think I need to read the Illad again).

She was thinking ContemAthena or Contemporary Athena--I told her Contemp sounded like contempt of court.

I would love your thoughts and creativity!

I like the idea of playing up her name...

Just Another Mommy Goddess

Goddess Of Mommy Wisdom

Well Yes I Am A Goddess

Tell her to just play around with it and something will sound right.

Hmmm. . .Athena's Forum? Maybe that's too reminiscent of Penthouse. . .

Athena's Musings?

I think I need more coffee. . . (that's a reality not a blog name LOL)

Is "My Big Fat Greek Blog" too obvious? I think it'd be cute!

What about "Modern Athena"? It'd be a shame not to use a such great name. "Modern" because she is a modern version of n ancient goddess and in the other contemporary sense. Plus it roles off the tongue nicely. Just a thought. Good luck! Love the blog!

I was thinking The Oracle of Delphi and got the names mixed around.

The Oracle of Ann Arbor. etc. is what I meant to write. :)
