Rufus?

Verity used Rufus as the NotD  today and I admit, he’s charming as heck.  Rufus has been on my lists since at least 1989 and “Bill & Ted” (And launched my career as a Keanu Reeves fan, too).  But that’s another story!

I remember being 22, sitting in the theater thinking :”Rufus George, hmm, not bad”. yes, even a namegeek then. 😀  So when I remembered that, I started thinking. And ended up with Rufus George Porfirio. As anyone who knows me knows, Porfiro is my Zelda for the boys. I’ve loved his sound since I was 2 and if I’d been thinking a little clearer when I had the boys, they’d be Leo Ambrose & Simon Porfirio.  Oh well. I seem to be leaning towards Porfirio as a second middle, where he won’t hurt anyone but I can still enjoy him.   I could also do these:

 

Rufus Edward Porfirio
Rufus James Porfirio
Rufus Martin Porfirio
Rufus Niall Porfirio
Rufus Graham Porfirio
Rufus Edwin Porfirio
Rufus Claude Porfirio
&
Rufus Elliot Porfirio

 

 Any of those stand up better than Rufus George Porfirio?    I think I like the simplicity of George best between Rufus and Porfirio. I could go into why I paired each of these with Rufus ___ Porfirio, but think I’d rather hear what you like of them without the associations. If you want, I’ll post the associations later on tonight.

 

 Thanks a million!

Eulalie, Third Time’s a Charm?

Maybe?

I’m still loving Eulalie. Even though I’m not satisfied with her present combo and  still searching for a replacement.

Eulalie Frances Madelief is the lovely standard bearer. I’ve had her combo around for about half a year now but I’m becoming disenchanted with the overall look. Eulalie’s different. Sounds vaguely familiar to most but still feels a bit unususal. I really think she’s awesome.

So I’ve been digging around the various lists and have come up with 5 that charm me in various ways. I have them running off in a poll at BtN but I’ll list them here too, just in case anyone has trouble with the link or just doesn’t want to click.

Eulalie Frances Pearl
Eulalie Alice Grey
Eulalie Esme Katharine
Eulalie Saffron June
Eulalie Ivy Frances
Eulalie Isobel Green

 

Do you have a favorite? Care to sell me on  it? I like all of them in turns and can give you a good reason why I like each. I need a nudge in one direction or another.  Thanks!
