What’s in a Name? Help me choose one and win!

Blythe Doll Pink Hair

Confession: I am a grown woman that likes to play with dolls.

I have a tiny collection of vintage dolls from the 60’s and 70’s but mostly I collect Blythe.

There was a time many years ago when I was buying and selling Blythe dolls like it was my job. It’s a very addictive hobby! But then I smartened up (because it’s also a very expensive hobby!) and stopped. No new dolls for a long time. Until one day when I caved and bought this lovely lady:

Sadly she did not end up getting much attention. Life got crazy and I never found the time. She went up on the doll shelf nameless. <gasp>

As you can see, life has not been easy for her. The snickers. The dirty looks. The injustice!!!

It must end.

She needs a name!

Since this blog is all about name changes this week I thought it would be fun to ask for help. Leave a comment here on this blog post with your suggestions for a name. Whoever suggested the name I choose will get a $10 gift card to my store as a little reward 🙂

Just a few rules:

  • Even though I’ll post the ad for this on Instagram and Facebook, only names suggested here on this blog post as a comment will be considered. It’s easier for everyone to see what has been suggested already if we keep all the names in one place.
  • In case a name is repeated exactly, everyone who mentioned it will win. 🙂
  • Post your suggestions by 11:59 pm EDT on Wednesday night (July 2nd)
  • Winning name will be revealed on Thursday July 3

** Edited to add: I changed the rule about the “first person to say a name wins” because I realized almost immediately that it was not fair. I have to approve comments manually which means a name could have been suggested already and you wouldn’t know because it wasn’t approved yet. SO in the event that I choose a name that more than one person has mentioned, everyone gets to win 🙂

So whaddya think? Got any ideas? What does she look like to you?

For reference, her sisters’ names are . . .
Malcolmina Mayflower,
Pixel,
Bella Buttercup,
Olive Greene,
Chester Copperpot,
Snail,
James T. Smirk,
and Ann.

As you can see, the name can be ANYTHING 🙂

Ready, set . . .. . GO! Let the naming begin!

    Pinkerella ?
    Sorry, if you find the name lame but she sort of reminds me of Cinderella, you know, the harsh childhood, the injustice… and she’s got pink hair 😀

    Wow you ladies are fast! These are all fantastic suggestions! FYI I had to change the rules because I noticed there would be some inevitable repetition due to the time lag in me approving comments. 🙂 So don’t worry about that anymore!
