Bewitching Names First Birthday!

It's hard to believe, but one year ago today I started this blog. Happy First Birthday Bewitching Names! Do I get presents?

Well, I have a present for you at least. Here's a picture of me when I was around the age of one year old. Imagine this little girl twenty five years later and you have an approximate idea of what I look like now.

I would like to thank all of my fellow name bloggers and all my viewers. My goals were pretty modest when I made this blog, 10 followers would have made me happy. I've done quite a bit more than that!

Total Page Views: over 53 thousand.

Website that sent the most viewers my way: Appellation Mountain.

Search term that brings the most viewers: "Bewitching Names," of course, but also "pixie names."

Strangest search terms that bring viewers here: "Winter girls" or "girls in winter." I don't know what to make of that.

Three most viewed name profiles:

1. Icie
2. Pixie
3. Kahlo

Countries that view this blog the most (highest page views to lowest):

1. United States
2. United Kingdom
3. Australia
4. Canada
5. Greece
6. Germany
7. New Zealand
8. India
9. Russia
10. Romania

Where do I get these awesome pictures?

Oh, you know. Around.

Note on Pagan Name of the Month:

In retrospect, I probably should have made the voting time shorter. But I'm closing the voting on the day after Yule (that's December 23rd to you non-Pagans) because I have a lot more seasonal names waiting. I think I'm going to have three runners up and a winner, and the way things are shaping up now you might be surprised.

Here's to another year!

  1. Congrats! And that's an adorable picture :)

  2. Congrats! You're blog is so fantastic. Hope you keep going for many more years.

  3. Happy Birthday to Bewitching Names, and congratulations on doing such a great job Isadora!

    (I'm genuinely surprised by the top three names, btw)

  4. Waltzing- Icie was linked on a forum of a prominent parenting website, so when you come from that blog that's the page you land on. The person who posted it also said that Icie was a pretentious name.

  5. Happy first birthday! I've learned quite a bit about Pagan culture and basked in the truly 'bewitching' names you feature!

  6. Happy 1st Birthday! I am so glad I stumbled upon your blog a little bit ago! I love it and even though I'm not looking for names anytime soon, I subscribe to it and love reading what you come up with next! Keep up the remarkable work!

  7. Happy birthday, Isadora! Love your site - it is amazing how often I think, "you know, I've never seen any thing about Orange as a name ..." and then it pops up here. :)
