Mash Ups

16 May

Standing at the sink the other night doing dishes, I got to thinking. Why is it that we christen the rich, famous, or infamous with mashed up names? There’s JLo, LiLo, Bennifer, and let us not forget Brangelina or TomKat. Is it so hard to use a complete name? Have we really lost the ability to speak in anything but sound bytes?

Of all the nicknames I’ve had, none of them have every employed the mash up. If they did, I could be WeMi (nope), WeMo (no, not that either), WeJay (neyt), or JEndi (actually, SFC and I do get called this and I don’t really mind).

So, what’s your mash up name?
