Cosmo, Again

I’m still working on Cosmo. I don’t want to lose him because he feels so beautiful to me but can’t think of a combo that sings like Rufus’. Cosmo Henry Graham was it for the longest time, an still is, for the most part. I really dig Cosmo George ____ but think Cosmo _____ George flows better. I’ve had Cosmo Willem George too, which pleases me but no one else, it seems. So I went thinking again, because I *really* like Cosmo _____ George; here’s the few that I’ve come up with:

Cosmo Rohan George – That Rohan like Rowan, not Ro-han, like LOTR, although I could live with that if he gets it.This combo’s blue green yellow to me. Blue for Cosmo, Green for Rohan and yellow for George.

Cosmo Maxfield George – Maxfield again for Parrish, my favorite artist of all time. I really dig this one but think the flow’s a bit off. Am I crazy? blue, green yellow here. Maxfield’s a pretty subdued green.

Cosmo Alasdair George – Flow’s spot on and I really like Alasdair. Not as much as Maxfield but almost. Alasdair’s silver. Blue, silver, yellow. Kind of pretty but a bit bright.

Cosmo Gavriil George – I adore Gavriil, he was one of my G. Uncles. I think I’ve mentioned Gavriil before. It’s pronounced: gah-vree-EEL I slur it a bit, so it comes out more like gah-vrEEL, but that’s how I always heard it as a kid, I don’t think the family’d freak too badly. And I think he’s kind of funky. I like Gavriil, about as much as Maxfield, both in looks and sound. Blue, copper, yellow. Gavriil’s a pretty coppery orange and meshes well between the other two.

And that’s it. Nothing more strikes my fancy between Cosmo & George.

What do you think? Anything leap out at you as nifty? Talk to me! 🙂

Cosmo Revisited

Just a quick update – After watching the poll and a fair bit of discussion, we have a new Cosmo front-runner!

 

Cosmo Henry Gavriil

 

 

 

Gavriil was one of my Babci’s many brothers (Valentin, Arkadiy, Dmitriy, Pavel, Branimir, Ivan, Maksim, Sergei, Baltazar, Rafael, Pyotr & Constantin). While I never knew him, the stories of him were always my favorites and it’s the most fun to say aloud too: gah-vree-eel.

I think Henry adds a nice note of serious to Cosmo & Gavriil is a nice nod to the maternal line, which is tough to fit in with the Scots surname! Cosmo comes from my Paternal line and I feel a little badly that only Henry honors his side but he’s got no problem, himself. He says “the G’s enough to honor Graham, for me”. Isn’t he a doll? 😀

So it’s Hip, Hip, Huzzah for Cosmo Henry Gavriil!
