Most people came up with unrelated adjectives for each letter of their first name. I decided to try to come up with something that made sense - using my full name. By popular vote (and in front of all attending), Bob paid me $20 for my very FIRST personalized acroname attempt:
OREN PARDES = Ongoing Reminder Enthusiastically Nurturing Purposeful Action Demonstrating Extreme Success.
This gave new possibilities and meaning(s) for both my name and my creating more acronames.
OREN PARDES = Only Rich Experiences Now; Playful Activities Really Do Express Satisfaction.
Although it's only a casual hobby, I noticed that I not only enjoy creating acronames, but apparently seem to do so more easily and quickly than many other people. I also seem to be the only person I know who tried to create sentences or phrases.
People seem to really appreciate the personalized acronames I create for them. My blog post about "Tactile Yell" was originally a longer blog posted on MySpace on April 1st, 2009. Many of the name examples found on this site came from acronames I created for people who commented on that blog.
Just after deciding to start this site I read a post on Facebook by Johnny Fernandez requesting that his "friends" post their favorite acronyms. I submitted acronames - using his full name and a few options for his and his wife's first names. His reply prompted me to add a "donation request" to this site. I'm not sure what an acroname is worth (in financial terms), but I'm open to finding out.
I'm not the only person who creates acronames - for myself or for others, but I have yet to find a website similar to this one. If you find value in what I post on this site, I hope you will help support my efforts in some way.
Please let me know what you like (or don't) and how I can make this site better. Your thoughts, comments, and donations are much appreciated.
