A blogs name is one of the most important attributes to the blog. It is one of the first things visitors notice about it.
A very common question asked by many individuals when the topic for my blog comes up is "What's MCLAVIN?" or "How did I come up with the name MCLAVIN?"
Rewinding back to the time when I was thinking of a name for my blog, I was almost clueless as to where to start and what to name it after, or how could I make it personalised. Probably, it was one of the most difficult and time-consuming things to come up with as I was following the rule; First impression is the last impression.
To start with, I would like to thank my friends at University for the blog name inspiration.
As it was my first time at university, I introduced myself to my flatmates as Eklavya, assuming my name might take some time for them to correctly pronounce, but in the hope that they'll eventually learn (which never happened).
To my surprise they actually came up with an alternative name and started calling me MCL'O'VIN, reason being, it sounded very similar to my real name and obviously, easy to pronounce. Six months down the line, it comes to my understanding that "Mclovin" has a meaning to it and he's a character in a movie called Superbad. Though I never fancied the name much I still didn't mind them calling me Mclovin, as we all later became very close friends. However, for future social introductory instances I came up with my version of an alternative name being LAV. So as my journey progressed at uni, there was one group calling me Mclovin and the other Lav.
The above incident struck me while I was brainstorming a name for the blog. So after a bit of word play I concluded with: MCLOVIN + LAV = MCLAVIN
I have been diverting from personal style and moving towards topics like healthy food and general queries I come across day-to-day. I would love to know if y'all have any questions or would like me to post on a particular topic. I look forward to hearing from you
Thanks for reading.
