For the last couple of weeks I’ve been trying (with help from whall and others) to come up with a new domain name for my website. At one point during this process I decided to go ahead and rename my blog from “Ren’s Journal” to “Ren’s Ramblings”. Because of this, rensramblings.com was a possibility, but my website hosts other things besides my blog (my photos and my needs-to-be-updated running and biking maps), so I wasn’t satisfied by this.
We went through all sorts of alternatives, some of the best of which were “renfinity” and “rentinuum”. Some of the goals I had were for it to be memorable, identifiable (though I’m not actually sure what I mean by that), easy to spell from its sound and with an implied meaning that was at least vaguely applicable to my (or a generic) website.
I finally came up with “renagerie” and I immediately liked it better than any of the other suggestions. In fact, I like it enough that I plan to rename my blog (again) after the domain is configured.
