Burnett's Urban Etiquette

James needs your advice...for real

I'm putting together the elements of a Web page that will be home to my doodling, a place where you'll be able to connect to my news reporting which is published originally in the Miami Herald and on, this blog, and other projects I'm working on.

But I'm having trouble settling on a name for the site. Mrs. B says I should keep it simple, like my name dot come. But is taken. I've seen a few variations of it with dot net and dot this and dot that, etc., but nothing I like so far. So at this point I'll take clever over simple.


If I end up using your clever recommendation, there'll be a reward in it. Not sure what, but I'll think of something.

Oh, and speaking of news reporting, here's a piece I wrote with a colleague in Sunday's paper on DVD & CD piracy.

  • I am too pretty, Jay. But I'm not sure if that's the site name that will keep folks taking me seriously. As for the latter, it might be too confining. Don't wanna box myself in to my whole site being about the theme of this blog.

  • How about "THe Burnett Report" then - simple, efficient, but versatile too in that you can go off in whatever direction your reporting is taking you at that time as well. Just a thought.

    A place where all of your thoughts are collected into one site...

    Thanks for writing... I enjoy your blog very much.

  • How about:

    Burnett's Miami

    Of course you'll have to write it this way:

    How about:

    Or this:








    (I really like this one. It has more than one meaning."





    (I like this one, too.)

  • Goodness someone has been busy!

    Think I'd use 'Burnett' somewhere in your url as that's how many of us know you, even though we may address you as James.

    Happy name choosing/inventing.

  • You could always go with:

  • How about "Mr. B's"

    By Blogger Gerald, at 9:43 AM  

  • I still like "Urban Etiquette"

  • Burnettiquette 2: Electric Boogaloo?

    By Blogger Kevin, at 10:55 AM  

  • I think because you are amalgamating several aspects of your work into 1 site that works.

    I always thought melding Burnett and Etiquette together into was funny too but Kevin above me has the same idea.

    Both and are available as well (actually everything I've listed is available... I checked).

  • I notice you are really James H. Burnett III. My husband is a 4th and he uses his number in his email address. So, how about JamesBurnettIII; JamesBurnett3; JamesHBurnettIII; JamesHBurnett3. Or variations with initials: JBurnettIII; JHBurnettIII; etc.

    Good luck!

  • Why not go with what you know — love the play on etiquette you've used with your name, a la or

    I don't think that would necessarily limit your focus, since "etiquette" could be used loosely to simply imply a mode of doing something (even if that "something" is a manner of speaking, thinking, etc.).

    Other ideas:

    I could go on... (and probably would, if I didn't have work to do :).

  • Good suggestions, all! I've narrowed it down to two. One of the "finalists" was posted by at least one of you guys. I will reveal it on Friday.

    By Blogger James Burnett, at 10:51 PM  

  • too bad, I like the Essential James Burnett

    By Blogger The CEO, at 11:14 PM  

  • Well, I'm a day late.

    By Blogger Pamela, at 2:58 AM  

  • I thought TheEssentialJamesBurnet was good too.

    By Blogger Bronchitkat, at 4:47 AM  

  • Monty, you and BK have made me reconsider. I think I'm liking too. OK, so there are now two finalists from this list.
