names. Particularly names of paint, but if I really think about it, I love names of all sorts: seed names, names of roses, people’s names and their meanings, names of colors, names of yarn, etc. I always wonder if there’s a specific job for naming paint. And how, with all the products out there do they avoid repeating the name of something else? I appreciate thought and creativity behind a good name: “Goodwill to Men” or “Spacious Skies”, yes. “Summer Fun Blue” not so much.
Ironic, then, that the latest color of paint I chose was simply “Classic Taupe”. And even more puzzling, is the fact that we still have not a clue what we’re naming our baby who will be born in less than two months. I’m hoping for something more inspired than “Classic Taupe”.
