Why is your blog named thus?

One of my friends had an innovative blog name in her erstwhile blog. I liked the way "eye" was used in place of an "I". So, like Anu Malik, I was "inspired" by that and named my blog eye in sty in... which if pronounced together spells Einstein. Also, And this is where things get interesting, so hold on to the seat of your pants.... if you take the 1st letters of each word in the blog, it spells EISI also means I-See... See? How bright can I be at times!

I told you the secret of my blog name, now whats the story behind yours?

PS: post inspired by another friend.

The more part you mean?

Valerine said...

Well so u admit that u can be bright only some times lol....

Well i named by blog ripples for 2 reasons:
1 I love water
2 When u throw a stone in the water it creates ripple which mean an effect!

Verbal fiend - Fiend is a naughty little devil.....I am naughty but not a devil...& my blog is a mixture of fun, serious issues, my emotions etc..

Serendipity said...

lol!! This could be a tag you know :D

Mine is a LONGG WINDING story so ill spare you the trouble!

and err umm .. I never realised its pronounced almost like 'Einstein'I wondered why you would want a moniker thats reminiscent of the eye infection 'stye' LOL!

Hi Val,
Well, a bulb cannot be burning ALL the time. It'll burn a fuse :P
Liked the reasons for naming your blog. Fiend you say? Till this day I read it as Friend. Thanks for pointing out the true spelling.

Hi B,
I did think of doing a tag with this one, but then just a 1 liner tag was not feeling right. And I wanted to have an interactive post any way.. so there. Thanks for instigating the post.

And long and winding is EXACTLY what makes for a good read. You can even do a post about it if you like :-)

I did not even think about the STY piece while creating the blog. It was only when I tried to google my blog that I realised what I had really done :-)

I have seriously considered a re-christening! btw, glad to have u back :-)

Shayari said...

Thought you are some mighty fan of Einstein..hmm now the blog name has a different story to tell.I-See..?that's interesting :-)

Well, a simple combination of nick name and the surname did the blog URL for me:)

Bouncing-Bubble said...

I thought "eye" was ur creative original imagination!
as for mine, I was in a hurry to comment n participate in Smi's blog, hence just conjured up this bubble which is bouncing :))
there's a reason actually, why don't u hazard a guess??

Dhanya said...

Hey! Thanks for explaining your nick name here ;) You sure are 'simply complicated'! :D

eye-in-sty-in said...

Is that really you Shayari!?? I dont believe this... Am seeing you on my blog after ages.. :-)
As far as being a fan of eyestein... well I think everyone is a fan of that man :-) E=mC square.... even munnabhai knows THAT equation :P

Hi BB,
Thanks for the vote of confidence in my creativity... I need more loyal friends like you :-))
But no. The creativity did not stem from my brain. Although I should get credit for atleast getting inspired and coming up with something innovative. You can call it Copy-paste done tastefully and creatively :P

eye-in-sty-in said...

Hi Dhanya,
Welcome to my blog. At least on the 1st impression I am like that... After the 2nd and 3rd one the simple gets dropped off and only the complicated remains :P Btw, you have not told the story of your blog name. Do you want to be punished on the 1st visit kya? lol

Hi Smita,
Ofcourse. If I wont pick it, then who else will? You should have thought of that before leaving such a "simple" comment on MY blog :D And I thought you will say that more bole toh - aap ke pyaare sallu bhaiyya :P

Hi Sahityika,
Welcome to my blog. I browsed thru your profile and was scared to see things in hindi! Even in school days i had a phobia of all lingos except english! I'll keep stopping by as long as you promise you wont make me read any posts written in hindi :D And yes, I do like your blog name. Its got an elegant ring to the name. Makes me think of old parchments, an ink pot and text scribbled in Sanskrit! very nice. :-)

eye-in-sty-in said...

Hi BB,
Almost forgot to guess why your blog was named thus - Let me put my Sherlock cap on!

1) Since you were in a hurry, you must have named the blog after getting inspired by your surroundings! Going by that angle, I have 3 theories.
A. I assume you like watching cartoons (This is where I get intuitive). In the cartoon, you would have seen a bubble that bounces up n down and named your blog with that. (It could be youtube too)
B. You were looking out of the window and watched children playing with soap bubbles. This inspired you.
C. You have a water-proof laptop and were taking a bubble bath while creating this blog! (Just trying to cover all odd angles here too)
D. This is just a smile - not a theory :D

No enigma here. I'm your girl-next-door said...

Ah, now I get it, Einstein!! Oh btw, I'm kinda bored of my blog's name. And yes, blame the '07' part of it to non-availability of 'thoughtbubbles'.

Smita said...

Look who is getting obsessed with my sweetheart Salman Khan :D Welcome to the gang, am so proud of you that you keep thinking about him & keep mentioning him every second ;-)

You are a true friend :D

eye-in-sty-in said...

Hi Girl next door,
Thoughtbubbles is an interesting name - why did you choose that as the name for your blog? Btw, did you know there is a movie made called "girl next door"? Welcome to my blog :-)

Smita,
Sweetheart Salman BROTHER. Pls dont spoil bhartiya-sanskriti on my blog :D

couchpapaya said...

i think one of my earliest posts was abt the blog name, basically i was rebelling against all the activity i was forcing myself into *cough* skiing :(

eye-in-sty-in said...

Hi CP,
Read it just now... It was funny. Had any pizza lately? eh! ;-)

Mama-Mia said...

i just blame mouthshut for my sidey blogname!! i was an amateur writer and my pals called me abe! so it became amateurabe!

now i think it sounds bit porn!! grrr! :p

cheers!

eye-in-sty-in said...

Hi Mia or shd I say M&M.. lol... Do you know, for the longest time I thought your id was amateurBABE... lol... Porn? You never fail to make me laugh ... it should have been awesomeabe or as I would have read it, awesomeBABE... lol :D

avdi said...

Um hum. Eisi - Lucky for you I connected your name with Einstein and not (though i was tempted) by Sty in the Eye, hehe.

Well I have loads of explaining to do. Avdi was my gujju kiddy nickname, no one could have shortened my name, so they lengthened it.

Rotteneggstrikes is clarified in the first post when I had this ephiphanic moment when I attempted to make breakfast and cracked four rotten eggs.

Pink bee was just a random strike when I blogged on my brothers site about movies and movie stars at www.luckykabutar.com

Booksbyrotten came about because Rotteneggstrikes wanted to write about books.


whew - here is a mini blog. Maybe a tag would have been a better idea.

eye-in-sty-in said...

Hi Ava,
You should make it as a post and start the tag :-)
Atleast it'll be original, short and am sure the story will be fun to read :-)
Err, will I get any credit for being the originator :P

4 rotten eggs? in succession? If it was expected by you, I would have bought the lottery!

Someone recently called me Eye in Style! That name is not bad either! :D
