Name my hubby contest...

Of course, my husband, has a wonderful in real life name, which has been his for 53 years now. When I first started blogging, I simply referred to him as DH (Dear Hubby), which is a holdover from the shorthand used on message boards for a husband.

However, I've never been a huge fan of the shortened hubby for husband. And, DH seems a bit impersonal. So, I'm debating about coming up with a new blogging moniker for him.

The author of the lovely blog, very CALM, uses the word beloved for her dearest. I think that's a wonderful way to refer to her husband. However, that's hers, and I'm searching for something for my own DH. I want it to be something that honors our 28 years of marriage.

Here are some ideas I've had:

Cherished Professor
Cherished Engineer (He's been both a professor of engineering and a working engineer in his career)
My dearest

And, now I'm stuck. Nothing seems to express the fullness of who he is. So, if any of you creative bloggers have any ideas, please let me know.

Enjoy!
Elizabeth

What about Darling one? I realize I call my husband 'hubby' on my blog. Perhaps I should change that up as well.

Fun!! Have you decided on a name yet?

When I think of your name, I think of Elizabeth Bennett. Perhaps he could be Mr. Darcy? tee hee!!
