YouTube Poll - "name"

Post by Kystar » Wed Jul 21, 2010 3:06 pm

Hey, gang, I know I was talking about this in my other post...but I wanted a poll...and since you need to start a new topic to establish a poll...here we are.

I need some feedback on the names I'm considering for my youtube channel.

Any questions just ask.

Thanks!

Pick something easy to remember is the number 1 rule... meaning it either has to be catchy or short. Elemental Path was my vote because it is both short, catchy and has a melodic sound to it... pretty much anything that makes it easier for people to remember your online name is what you're looking for.

Anyways, just wanted to say, why I chose the one I did. :-D

I chose Beneath the Oak because it's very different and holds a lot of mystery, plus it just makes me smile :)

Well, Beneath The Oak is there b/c I have a MASSIVE (100+ year old) oak tree in my yard that's fully awake...and tends to yell at me. I was planning on doing a lot of my filming in the yard under his canopy. Put it this way, he's so big that if you did a Google maps satellite picture, all you see is the house and the tree.

Elemental Path is just b/c I consider myself an Elemental Witch.

Beneath the Oak. Deffinately.

If you want to link it with Pagan stuff, "Beneath Hearn's oak", or Beneath Frejas oak", or something?

Ragnar, Interesting idea, but I wouldn't want to mis-represent myself.
I don't follow specific deities, I don't usually do rituals that call on a god or goddess in particular. The Divine is just that, The Divine. Sometimes the Divine Mother and/or the Divine Father, but never more specific than that.

As for the Oak, his title is Grandfather Oak. I'd probably use that in the videos when I spoke of him.

Another vote for the Oak.

I've always felt quite a connection to trees and Oak and Maple have been constants. They're very powerful beings and I can't wait to buy my house that is just plain surrounded by woods!

Funny you should mention a Maple, Davish, I have one on the other side of the yard from the Oak, they make an interesting canopy for our backyard.

I've always been partial to Weeping Willows, myself. I'd love to have land that had a pond and a willow or three. My actual "Working" wand is a willow branch offered by a tree that was being cut down b/c of problems with it encroaching on another's land.

Though, certain Fruit trees are strong voices for me, too. This is the first time I've been this called by an Oak.

Well, with such a prominent old soul right in your back yard, I imagine he's got quite the loud voice. It's no wonder you're hearing him!

He's a bit surprised to be "heard," I think. After all, I'm in Suburbia. The trees in suburbia tend to be treated like lawn ornaments. They're always surprised when a Human talks back.

Reminds me of when I try speaking to pets on the bus that I meet. They're always shocked and one refused to speak to me, using a very human tactic, "If you just don't speak to the insane girl, she'll go away." Apparently, I just wasn't supposed to know how to speak to it. :lol:

Can't wait to see this tree! it sounds awesome!

Speaking of which... How are the kittens doing for speaking? Getting better at it, or are they resisting the transition?

Well, my girls have it to the point where we can ALMOST understand each other on the important things (Food time, sleep time, GET HER AWAY FROM ME time {Noche to Kali}, play time, NOT play time) but don't really want to fully "speak" to me.

Though...Noche WILL inform us if something "Not right" is in the house...either a bug or a spirit or a shade...and will be VERY insistent about "THIS NEEDS TAKEN CARE OF!"

Our new kitty's learning, but he's so flippin headstrong and ... BOYish... that it's taken him a while. For goodness sake, he got stung by a wasp on his last venture outside, and then tried desperately to get back out when I brought him in for it! He certainly knows a wall when I put it up, though!
