Gopher law? The trials and tribulations of choosing a name for your blog

Posted on Updated on

The Law Library staff have been hard at work burning the midnight oil and brainstorming blog names recently.  We wanted to create a name that stood out and reflected our brand. More importantly, we wanted to select a unique name that represented who we are and what we do here at the library.    Putting our heads together and thinking creatively, we took a vote and decided to call this blog Legal Sourcery.  Legal Sourcery is the expertise and capability we bring to legal research.  It represents the multitude of legal resources we provide and the skills we use to wade through these resources.

Here are a few of the other interesting and witty names we thought of that didn’t quite make the cut.

  • Gopher Law (Go-For-Law)
  • Focus
  • Synthesis
  • Outlaws
  • Collawboration
  • Pipeline
  • SLAWB
  • Lawsters
  • Lawgistics
  • Lawstronauts
  • Lawly Pop
  • Legal Plains
  • The Silo
  • The Sly-brary
  • Wind Chill

What do you think of the other blog names we thought of?  Did we make the right decision? Let us know what you think

    I think you picked by far the best suggestion. Most of the others are too cute or too obscure. “Gopher” is of course the name of the main pre-WWW Internet search engine: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gopher_(protocol). I suppose there are reasons for a prairie-based operation to like it, but I think it would have been thought derivative.

    I will watch with interest what you make of it. So far, so good!

    I can only hope that I will one day live in a world where the doctor resource blog is called Medical Quackery.

    My vote was obviously for “lawstronauts” or a close second of “Wind Chill”

    You picked the right one – though Gopher Law was also clever.
