When I had to choose a nickname for my blog I thought about the nickname they gave me in art school "Madame Chat" which means Mrs Cat, but "chat" in English means a chatterbox which I am too, but I didn't want this as a nickname. Finally I found a solution I thought about "cat" in Italian and that is Gatto, for a male, Gatta for a female and Gattina for a kitty. Now you know !
Let's GO with the game and a lot of good, grand, and glamorous words !
Gattina - I did not know that!ReplyDelete
I did not know that either. Come here Gattina....ReplyDelete
Well that is a great name for a catlover!ReplyDelete
Thanks for explaining. I always thought it was your name. I had no idea. Great intro for the letter G.ReplyDelete
Excellent explanation! Love the reasoning behind your choice.ReplyDelete
Aha, cute kitty you are!ReplyDelete
wow- interesting Gattina-ReplyDelete
Thanks for the explanation. Sorry I missed last week, but up and running again!ReplyDelete
And Gattina has a nice ring to it... rolls off the tongue... no wonder... it's Italian!ReplyDelete
How appropriate Gattina xxxxReplyDelete
Great now I know another Italian word - thats good!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the explanation Gattina. I hope that everyone has a good week.ReplyDelete
I love the word Gattina. Thanks for explaining it. I was nicknamed "chatterbox" when growing up. :-)ReplyDelete
I have 2 gatti and once worked at a bar in Spain called Il Gatto Negro. Love your nickname, Gattina!ReplyDelete

How clever of you!!! I love this meme it is so fun!! :)ReplyDelete
Gattina...sounds so "Italian-lovely"!ReplyDelete
If we stand to use GRAND words, is that called GRANDSTANDING?

I like it - Gattina - just perfect!ReplyDelete
How clever! & such wonderful imagination.ReplyDelete
I should also add I have always admired your name.
& I must admit making up my own name is one of the things I love about blogging.
I didn't know that either...worked hard putting this one together..something that should have taken a small amount of time...took me forever :)ReplyDelete
I couldn't post due to not knowing how to put an image on my blog site...I think that was what it said...and can't figure out how to get the weekly reminder...can you tell I'm new to both the computer and blogging ! Love the challenges.ReplyDelete
