5 Easy Steps to Goop Yourself

April 5, 2014

in Uncategorized

Yeah, Gwyneth Paltrow as front page news is fading as other more timely topics encroach (Letterman’s exit, Lorde embracing her flaws, or that couple banned from naming their son “WikiLeaks”).

But still she’s on my mind. Or at least her website, Goop.com, is. How did it get such a silly name?

I’m guessing it’s either this, or that Gwyneth simply put some repeating vowels in between her first and last initials.

So à la Slate’s Travoltify your Name or its Relationship Status Generator, I offer you this low tech way to Gwynify your own personal website in five easy steps

  1. Determine your first and last initials
  2. Choose a vowel: a, e, i, o, u or even a y.
  3. Double your chosen vowel: aa, ee, ii, oo, uu, or even yy.
  4. Place the doubled vowels in between your first and last initial.
  5. Add .com. Or .net if you’re feeling edgy.

Example: I’m Lori Holden. I choose “u.” I’m not that edgy. Therefore, my own personal Gwynified website would be LUUH.com.

How did Gwyneth name Goop?

How about you? What’s your own personal Gwynified website?

I’m either going to be:

Maaf Problem


Where’s the Meef?

I love Maaf.

Always been pretty good at it.


Geochick April 5, 2014 at 4:30 pm

I’m going with TAAM.net. Because it’s ridiculous. And I’m edgy. Hahaha


Lori Lavender Luz April 7, 2014 at 9:47 am

Perfect! And edgy.


Michaela April 5, 2014 at 5:25 pm


1st initial M
last initial S

I could be Mees! Moos! Muus! Maas! Miis! Myys??- none of these seem too flattering!


Lori Lavender Luz April 7, 2014 at 12:07 pm

I kinda like Maas. How about MAAS.me? Maybe Taco Bell would buy it from you for an ad campaign.


Lesli April 5, 2014 at 8:37 pm

I’m LOOJ.me (Pronounced like that cool Olympic winter sport!!)

PS You look like Demi in the pic next to GP.


Lori Lavender Luz April 7, 2014 at 12:10 pm

LOOJ is awesome — and thanks for the compliment!


Kristi Campbell April 5, 2014 at 9:57 pm

I think I may be Kook so not happening.


Lori Lavender Luz April 7, 2014 at 12:13 pm

That’s one I hadn’t foreseen….


Robyn C April 6, 2014 at 1:14 am

I’m a rebel and like the “y” as a vowel, so mine would be Ryyc.net. I’m not so sure I’m edgy, I just like .net. :)


Lori Lavender Luz April 7, 2014 at 12:15 pm

RYYC.net is FABULOUS, you edgy rebel. (I think you’re edgy).


Heather April 6, 2014 at 5:43 am

Mine are HS so the only thing that makes sense to me is HOUSE. I don’t want HISS or HEES. Yuk. I’m trying to be a homemaker so maybe that will suit me.


Lori Lavender Luz April 7, 2014 at 12:18 pm

HOUSE it is then. Special dispensation — two different vowels are okay, too!


a April 6, 2014 at 5:57 pm

You know, it doesn’t really work when your first name begins with a vowel.


Lori Lavender Luz April 7, 2014 at 12:31 pm

Maybe it kinda sorta does….if you don’t mind sounding a little drunk-ish.

Or like you’re falling off a cliff.


Elizabeth April 7, 2014 at 9:15 am

I’m definitely BEEP.com (the B is from my childhood nickname… and “Beep” is actually what my husband calls me…)


Lori Lavender Luz April 7, 2014 at 12:34 pm

BEEP is very cool. BOOP could be an option, as well.


Cheryl April 7, 2014 at 2:44 pm

What do you think: CAAL (no, too close to college football) CEEL (no, too “pop star”), CIIL (no, the i and the l would get confused — the whole lowercase uppercase conundrum), COOL.me (can I even do that?), CUUL.me (has potential…maybe made exotic by an ü ), CYYL (no, looks like a drug – with unpleasant side effects. Gee, I hope that’s not me).


Lori Lavender Luz April 7, 2014 at 3:59 pm

Definitely COOL.me.

(I forgot to offer .me, but that would make yours super edgy. And indubitably cool.)


Carol Cassara April 11, 2014 at 9:32 am

The problem lies with having a C at the end. I use CAC as my initials, but the end C cries out for a K and then it sounds like the noise a hen makes. there’s no good choice here.


Suzanne Fluhr April 11, 2014 at 11:25 am

As in SaaF the Whales or SaaF whatever you think needs saafing.


Chloe Jeffreys April 11, 2014 at 2:10 pm

Oh, I like this game, but I’m not sure anything makes CJ work. CAAJ CEEJ CIIJ COOJ CUUJ. Nah. I got nothing.


Diane April 14, 2014 at 5:15 pm

Hmm . . . I like it! Can I be world famous now?
