    Blog name

    A dear friend of mine who is a wine specialist intends to start a blog in which he would write about a variety of wines. However, he is looking for a catchy, expressive and eye-catching title. We have a few alternatives, though we are open for everything that happens to spring into your minds.

    I have a few ideas:

    WINEtage
    WINEdering

    He also has some:

    WINEoceros
    WINEflu
    WINEfag
    WINEkiss
    WINEhoe

    What do you think about the above written alternatives?
    New titles are more than welcomed.

    Thank you in advance.

    I have a few ideas:

    WINEtage - Sounds as though something is being wound, a clock for example
    WINEdering - Close to "wondering", or, "wandering", may be the best of the various choices

    He also has some:

    WINEoceros - Sounds like a wild animal with a horn in the middle of the forehead
    WINEflu - Sounds like someone got the flu from drinking wine
    WINEfag - "fag" is an older term for a homosexual person
    WINEkiss - Not as negative as the others, but doesn't tell me much
    WINEhoe - Sounds like a reference to a prostitute

    What do you think about the above written alternatives?
    New titles are more than welcomed.

    Thank you in advance.
    "cute" names, and I guess that is what you are trying for, are difficult to find. Knowing a bit about Search engine optimization (SEO) (how a site is named and how that name increases your chances of being found on the Internet), I would go for a more obvious name. I occasionally write a blog concerned with how one learns to be a tour operator. After a few years of testing names I found that the best choice was, "How to become a tour operator". This is somewhat like what the American author, John Steinbeck, had to say about writing novels, which I shall paraphrase as, write at a seventh grade level (or, write so that a person of limited education can easily understand it. In the US, a seventh grader is about 13 or 14 years old). Your friend could title the blog as "Wine Choices" (a likely search term when people are interested in different wines) and introduce the writer as something "cute" - written by the WineFinder.

    I kind of like WINEoceros. It conveys the idea of someone who is ferocious about wine.

    Re: Blog name

    How about "Wine-ott". It's a play on words for "Why not?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
