Board Name Ideas

I have noticed that the board has gotten kinda stagnant. I know I am presonally in this bordom part of pregnancy. Where I'm getting into the 2nd trimester and am having better days with how I'm feeling (knock on wood!!!), but still haven't hit the fun parts of feeling the baby move all the time (I have had little wiggles every now and then, but nothing consistent), having my belly doing a lot of growing like it will as we get further into the 2nd tri, I have to wait a while to find out the baby's sex, and appointments are still so spread out, and pretty uneventful and routine...

So, I thought starting this would liven things up a bit Wink

We dont have a MOD yet, but some of us thought it would be fun to start brainstorming some board name ideas. Then, once we do get a MOD, maybe they could just do a poll/vote then???

Here are the previous Nov. board names that I could find:
Nov. 2011: Sweet Potatoes
Nov. 2010: November Raindrops
Nov. 2008: Nestlings

I personally think staying away from names that have to do with Thanksgiving is best since not everyone celebrates, and like someone else said, not every country celebrates it at the same time.

I have been doing some research on what November is known for (besides Thanksgiving here in the US) to get ideas for names...

I am having trouble really thinking of anything good... all I have come up with so far is:
Autumn Leaves or November Leaves
November Ballots
November Dreams (a lot of poems about November are about the earth going to sleep, or hibernation) or

glitter-graphics.com
November Saints, or November Souls (for all saints day... which I guess is in Nov... and all souls day???) though both are in the holiday vein, so I dont know...

glitter-graphics.com

again, just brain storming... cant wait to hear what other people come up with Smile

I like the Autumn Dreams idea! I wasn't around my last BB during this phase so this is all new to me. Smile

I really like November Dreams or November Blessing. Good brainstorming. I suck at naming. Blum 3

I like November Dreams too.

The only "November" thing I could come up with (and it's a little far reaching) is that the chrysanthemum is the Nov flower, which symbolizes optimism and joy, so...November Joys?

Hmm...or November Night Owls, lol. Lots of us will probably have night owls for a while!

Or we could go a different route and choose a cutesy name that doesn't have anything to do with November (Nov is hard!).

Cuties
Darlings
Dumplings (could allude to the cold weather dish chicken and dumplings)
Miracles
Munchkins
Pumpkins
Sweet Ones

pumpkins is taken by one of the October boards I do believe. Sweet Potatoes is Nov. 2011's board name. I know that Oct. is going to vote on their's soon and one of the top contenders for them is October Owls, and then Harvest Hoots...

I personally get sick with meats, so Dumplings isnt sounding good to me right now lol

Or we could go for alliteration

November Nippers
November Nightlights
November Nestlings
November Nectarines

... etc. I was looking at a list of words beginning with N. If someone wants to spend some more time on there, you might come up with something cuter than these. Smile
