What’s in a name?


A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.- Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare

Yeah, apparently there are few roses going by the same name as ours, boo.

We thought we were so clever. We selected K. and J. for our first names (careful not to switch the two because of the association with J.K. Rowling, although we’d be fine with any $$$ mistakenly sent our way). Garnet sounded dignified enough plus it was short and nice photos of jewelry popped up online.  It was a lot better than some of the other names we could have selected:


We checked to see if there were other K.J. Garnets out there, we really did. Of course, they popped up after we committed to the name  — a Japanese Instagram-er, and a Belgian writer who seldom uses the Internets but still managed to scoop the name (and it’s probably her/his own so we can’t really growl… much.)

Well, maybe a little. So the moral of the story is that we’re control freaks adopting a new mantra: *sings* “Let it go, let it go…”  We’ve got some stories to write.
