Re: Phexxi's former name of Amphora--take a look at a diagram of the female reproductive system. I'm sure the relevance will be quite apparent.

I haven't been reading your blog quite as long as you've been publishing it, but it's been quite awhile. Had my career path taken a slightly different turn 50 years ago, I suspect I'd have been deeply involved in naming and marketing, two areas that continue to interest me today. Thank you so much for your writing!

Not particularly related, but I thought of you when watching a Finnish tv show, Shadow Lines, set in the 1950s. A CIA agent undercover as a distributor for tampons (a product unknown in Finland in 1955 evidently) called Oompex.
