Get A Different Name Day

13 Feb


Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”


February 13th is Get a Different Name Day – This day is created for those who are not fond of the name given to them at birth.  It wasn’t our choosing.  Rather, our parents bestowed it upon us.  If you like your given name, fabulous!  If NOT, then today is the day to take advantage of it and change your name for the day.

What will your new name be?  I was bestowed the name of Rockford Pygmy Sciuridae.  I know, it’s a mouthful.  That’s why I go by the name of Journalist Rocky the Squirrel. 

Bacon’s full name is Bacon Porkchop Thompson.  I interviewed the little pig and asked him what he would change his name to for the day.  The little chap has a sense of humor.  He had a few and here are some of them: 

  • Brad Bacon Pitt (He thinks he can get Miss Piggy with this name)                         
  • Bacon Bond 003 1/2   (The pig watches too much James Bond)
  • Kevin Bacon (Even I rolled my eyes on this one)
  • Hamm (He said he wanted to try another breakfast meat – that pig!)

What would your name be for today?  I would love to know.

    Brad Bacon Pitt? I hope you will get Miss Piggy and not that Angelina-girl, brother :o) My mom planned to name me Hermès, she has a screw loose, I’m not a handbag. I think my name is ok, but I bet a Weim I met on a show once would like another one, his name is “Fly me to the moon and back Phenix”

    I figured that’s why the internet was invented… to give ourselves new names! Don’t tell anyone, but my real first name isn’t Evil!

    I never have much liked my given name – I would much rather have been called Esmeralda 🙂
