My post “Help Me Name My Daughter” came out 4 days ago. I have obscured the real identity of my family, with JumpStart aliases.
Mr. JumpStart and Mrs. JumpStart have worked well for us.
My daughter is currently a freshman in high school, and will provide plenty of content in 3 years, but she is too young to focus on jumpstarting her finances yet.
She is going to need a proper JumpStart identity, but I just couldn’t come up with a suitable name. I had used JumpStart Juniorita, but just didn’t like the name. Miss JumpStart was OK, but I didn’t feel like it was a clear distinction between my wife Mrs. and my daughter Miss. I reached out to my readers for help with a nick name.
TK is a fellow blogger and Roanoker who has known me since I was a baby. She quickly suggested Jenny JumpStart which intrigued me, because it is a nice, young, feminine name. I felt like Jenny JumpStart was moving in the right direction, but wasn’t quite there.
After TK’s suggestion, I left a comment on the post with several J girl names including Jenny and Judy.
Amy is the blogger who created Lifezemplified.com, and she left the suggestion JumpStart Jill, and I knew it was perfect. It was so simple and obvious, but I just hadn’t thought of it. I should have put more thought into nick names in Nov of 2016 when I began writing blog content. It should have always been JumpStart Jack and JumpStart Jill. JumpStart Jr. was a solid nick name, but JumpStart Jack pairs so well with JumpStart Jill.
So I’m proud to introduce JumpStart Jack and JumpStart Jill. Now, I have the task of going back through the posts and switching the word Jr. to Jack many times.
Thanks to everyone for the suggestions and help. A special shout out to Amy and TK. Go check out Amy’s blog https://lifezemplified.com/, which “helps you simplify life and crack the code on nutrition, exercise and money.”
