The Lonely Room is a bad name for something you do with friends.

We're looking for a name for a new game and hobby store. Metafilter is super great at naming things (like cats, blogs, food carts, etc.) and we've put our minds to coming up with a name but have run out of ideas that we both like. [more inside]

Help me font my name

My name is A R N I E. However, when typed on a computer it often looks like Arnie and lately a LOT of people are having trouble, thinking it's A M I E I use Gmail primarily and with that comes a limited selection of fonts, but how can I format my name so that it comes through clearly but still be unobtrusive as a signature?

Name my vegan carnival food business

We're launching a food business/truck/cart/booth that'll serve vegan versions of standard American carnival food (hot dogs, hamburgers, corn dogs, mini doughnuts, malts, etc.). It'll be in the context of other regular (i.e. non-vegan) carnival food vendors, serving a largely omnivorous crowd. But we can't come up with a name. We'd like the name to be relevant to our offerings, but we're finding it difficult to make any reference without it sounding potentially judgmental or self-righteous. Any ideas?

Not quite as fun as naming new pets or babies

Name my...eel?!

Yep, my (very large) saltwater tank has a new inhabitant, a blue ribbon eel. Now, normally I don't name fish, but eels are different and tend to have personality so I thought why not. This eel is about the width of a stick of gum, bright electric blue with a yellow stripe running the length of it and anywhere between two and three feet long (they don't swim much and hide in rock so it's hard to tell). He eats prawn and other chunks of fish. Fun names are great, as are puns, I'm open to anything.

Name my radio show!

OK, we have a low-power community radio station starting up, and even though doing radio was never on my bucket list, it's such an exciting project (and group of people) that I've decided to get a show while there are still open slots in the schedule.

Help name my genealogy website?

I'm putting together a genealogy website. Half of it is about my personal family history so my own relatives can look at it. The other half is about genealogy research itself, things of interest to other genealogists in general. I'd like a cool, fairly unique name for this website. Maybe a phrase? Any clever suggestions? Thanks!

Name That Book: Sci-fi - shoots arrows to build faraday cage

I'm struggling to remember the name of a book I read from a school library around 1995. I remember very little other than towards the end of the story the hero was fighting some sort of machine or robot. He used a bow to fire wires/cables over the top of the robot. With each cable the robot became less powerful as he believed he was building a faraday cage which was weakening it's powers. However, it was a ploy and the robot was feigning weakness. [more inside]

Poutine Hipster

Recently poutine came up in a convo I had with a foreigner. After they told me they visited Canada and while here made sure to try poutine, I explained to them that I was familiar with poutine before most Canadians knew what the hell it was and that in the not-too-distant past poutine wasn't well-known outside of Quebec. I estimated that it only started becoming popular outside of Quebec in maybe the late 90s. Am I off in this estimate, MeFi? [more inside]

Help me name a documentary film.

I'm finishing a documentary on an extremely large (multiple millions of people), global subculture. We picked 5 characters in 5 continents and spent "one day" with each of them to show the breadth of the community and how varied their experiences all are. I need a title that evokes a similar feeling to "Life in a Day" (which is already taken). At the end of the film, the title flickers past in dozens of languages, so it should be something that reads pretty fast.

When should I tell Social Security about my name change?

I'll be changing my name very soon. Problem: My employer will also file my W-2 soon. I don't want mismatched documents to make SSA or IRS send a no-match letter. It'd inconvenience us both, and since this is due to a gender transition, it would also accidentally out me. Is there some time early next year when all the W-2 forms will be processed, and I can tell the SSA of my name change, then my employer, without triggering a no-match? Or is my best option to tell everyone ASAP and hope for the best?
