Ruby Kat Moon

When I was in Hawaii Pat told me a story about an employee that had a horrible divorce, and at that time was allowed to petition, without legal battles, what her name would hence forward be, and she chose....Ruby Kat Moon. She then moved to Hawaii with her young adult daughter, they both got a job working on Pat's boat, and she is a fantastic amalgam of personality.


I just couldn't stop thinking about that name. It just rolls deliciously off my tongue. It has "great scope for my imagination," and I tried for days to come up with a better "life's just been shot to hell, so I'm gonna start over with an edgy sort of vivacity," sort of name. Tingles of excitement just burst around my nerve centers when I say that name...Ruby Kat Moon, Ruby Kat Moon, Ruby Kat Moon. Without a doubt, there is a Ruby Kat Moon deep inside me. A Ruby Kat Moon would wear hats, without self consciousness. A Ruby Kat Moon could say truthful and outrageous things, without feeling guilty. A Ruby Kat Moon would twirl and sing in a meadow with abandon. A Ruby Kat Moon could....oooh.....the list just goes on and on. Do you have a Ruby Kat Moon soul? And what is his or her name?

Catherine! I am so glad that you found my blog and that I found yours too! I love this post... I think my name would be Lily Del Lake. For no other reason than I love Lilies and I love Lakes.

My old roomate has dream of being Rubi Stonebrook her whole life instead of Kristen. I guess Rubi is a magical name. My name would definately have a native flair like "runs with winds" or something of that sort

"life is shot to hell, and I'm just going to start over with an edgy vivacity." That is the best sentence I've read in weeks.

I always wanted some spanish/portuguese-sounding name. They manage to sound both angelic and sexy at the same time.

Like, Blanca Augustina Lola de los Suenos. Only a patron saint or someone can give you a name like that. One of my favorite names to say is a beach in Cuba I went to called "Maria de la Gorda." It rolls around in your mouth like a pretty marble. It translates to "Maria the fat."
