If you don't have your hobbit name, I'm afraid you won't ever...

Over the weekend, I was with some friends (one of whom is also Two Pretzel's cousin R.) at a wedding.  R asked my how I came up with my blog title.


I love Hobbits and feel Hobbit like - short, jolly, with a love of all things culinary.  And beer. 

I had stumbled upon a HOBBIT NAME GENERATOR that turns your name into a hobbit name and is an actual character from Tolkien's works.  Mine, of course, was Iris Took of Great Smials.  My title and moniker was born.  I just loved it!  I hobbit-ed everyone's name (whether they wanted me to or not).  It's fun.

Turns out - the link NO LONGER exists!  I found a few sites that claim they generate your hobbit name, but they do not, at least not to what I had come up with a few  years ago.  So there you have it - I have an extinct name for my blog.  I am sorry that you cannot have one if you don't already have one.  It's a fun world here in the Shire.

OMG. I'm so sorry that the name generator no longer exists.

That is terrible.

But the good news is there is no chance of ever having another Iris Took of Great Smials out there! You are it chica :)
