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.
