Probatio Pennae

So what kind of name is The Cellar Door? Well, it’s a great one. As you may already be aware, Cellar door has commonly been recognized as the most aesthetically pleasing word in English, a rumor reportedly begun by Tolkien. I have chosen it as the title of this blog for that simple reason–it sounds good, and though it serves admittedly as a somewhat unoriginal title, it ultimately serves its purpose as a catchy one. If you are not fully convinced of the awesomeness that is cellar door, let’s look to the most trustworthy of all resources, Wikipedia:

The phrase cellar door has some notoriety as the reputedly most euphonic sound combination of the English language (specifically, when spoken with a British accent). A more recent example of an allegedly ugly-sounding word is blog.

Other than that, the name doesn’t carry any intended symbolic meaning. I suppose I could say something pseudo-snazzy like, “The Cellar Door is that modest portal through which I pass into this wide, wide, world of web and take my place in its vast blogosphere.”

May the Lord Jesus Christ be glorified and His Church edified.

    Looking forward to the discussion, some of which will apply to women such as me who are past the child-rearing years and find ourselves either in the work force or struggling to figure out how to properly use the gifts God has given us.
