Asking for my boyfriend: This will be a blog about what steps I am taking as I learn to be responsible with money, with the goal of retiring early. I will write about budgeting, saving for an emergency fund, figuring out how to invest in 401ks, etc. While this all sounds serious, I am a young guy with a sense of humor. Some ideas I am considering inside..

The Budget Boy or Dinero Dude - too young sounding?
Something along the lines of Lunch Money, Dollars and Cents, Money in my Pocket, Another Day Another Dollar, Money Moose would be good, if the domains/usernames weren't taken. The names can be silly, I just want something to do with money in the title.

Also, is it a bad idea to use my first name as part of the domain? For example, petespiggybank*

*not his real name

I think a name is OK because it personalizes it and potentially makes it easier to remember the site name.

For the purposes of his new financial blog, your boyfriend might also be interested in the concept of "fuck you money" (from the Cryptonomicon) and how to calculate what your personal "fuck you money" value would be. Here's a great old Ask thread about it.

You might give it a "what it says on the tin" name, such as (the very good) Can I Retire Yet?

Some of these are awesome! We especially love "A Random Walk Down My Street." Our friend recommended "Million Dollar Ninja," so we will be going with that.
