what do you suggest?

Here's the thing:  I want to give my sourdough starter a name.  Don't worry, I haven't gone off the deep end.  It's a done thing, apparently.  I spent an amusing period of time the other night, reading different names people have chosen for their starters.  It was hilarious.  There was a pair of starters named Herman and Lily Munster.  And one guy mentioned a starter which had revived, against all odds, again and again.  Its name? Lazarus.

I thought I'd see if you lovely readers have any suggestions for me.   But please do consider that I tend to think of my starter as a she.  When I croon sweet words as I give it a stir, I see it as a female entity.  After all, starters are always having babies.  Just something to keep in mind...

A few ideas I'm tossing around: Punky, or Punky Brewster.  I am considering keeping a wheat flour starter and a white flour starter, in which case I think Goodness and Mercy, respectively, could be fun.

So, any thoughts?  I'm very open to suggestions.  What do you think would be a good name (or names) for my lovely, bubbly little friend?

And please, don't judge me.  Some people play music to their plants; I talk to my sourdough starter.

Lucy. Or Susan?
I thought of the first because that's what Katya always calls her story characters. Then that reminded me of The Lion, the Witch and Wardrobe..
