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.
