Sprouted Fig (The Smoothie Lover)
October 22, 2015
.

I am beyond excited to introduce you to the new Smoothie Lover; Sprouted Fig. (Yes I have edited my URL, but maybe it will still show thesmoothielover – try and replace it with sproutedfig (; )As I’ve said a million times before I have absolutely no idea what I was thinking when choosing the old name. I hate it. Well, blame the 15-year old Josefine…

Anyway, I am so happy to finally have found a new name – and this time it’s a name with a meaning. So why Sprouted Fig? Well, first and foremost I wanted something a little shorter. Nicer. More basic. Also I wanted it to either have some kind of symbolic meaning or has something to do with me. And I am proud to say this name has got both of those things.

– Originally I wanted to incorporate my name, but let’s be real, that only works with nice short names. Like Renee Kemps. Or Izy Hossack. Not Josefine Meineche. Seriously… I can never be an artist or musician with that name. BUT Fig is my name. Almost literally. How come, you think? Well it’s a bit far-fetched but… The Danish world for fig is “figne”, which is pronounced the exact same way as “Fine” – a very common nick name for girls named Josefine. Danes tend to think it’s hilarious that I love figs, because it’s my nickname. And I’ve always felt oddly connected to figs because we share the same name. My name sake is a fruit. Hehe
– I also wanted the name to symbolise wholesome, vegetarian food – hence “sprouted”. (Oh, and I love sprouts)
– Also when something is sprouting it is growing, living… I liked that symbolism
– Aaaaand, I thought it would be funny because you can’t sprout a fig. Oh, I’m so witty…

I hope you like the new name. And I can’t wait to start blogging as Sprouted Fig instead of old Smoothie Lover.

Cheers!

Mine damer og herrer, jeg er glad for at kunne præsentere det nye Smoothie Lover: Sprouted Fig. (Jeg har ændret adressen, selvom der måske stadig står thesmoothielover frem for sprouted fig – prøv and ændr adressen (: ). Som jeg har sagt en million gange før, hader jeg navnet Smoothie Lover. Og jeg har bestemt ingen ide om, hvorfor jeg valgte det. Det har ingen mening. Well, jeg blamer den 15-årige Josefine.

Anyway, jeg er SÅ glad for endelig at have et rigtigt navn. Et med mening. Jeg har brugt lang tid på at brainstorme og søge efter ideer. Så hvorfor Sprouted Fig?

– Well, først og fremmest skulle det være kortere. Mere simpelt. Og det blev det.
– Jeg ville virkelig gerne have mit navn med i det, men let’s face it… Det går bare kun når man har et kort navn. Som Renee Kemps. Eller Izy Hossack. Ikke Josefine Meineche. Jeg kan jo aldrig blive kunstner eller sanger er fotograf med det navn. MEN som I nok ved betyder Fig jo fignen. Get it? Fine – mit kælenavn. Okay, lidt søgt det ved jeg godt… Det fungerer ikke på skrift. Prøv at sige det højt i stedet. Men det har altid været en god joke, at Fine elsker fignen. Og jeg har altid følt mig knyttet til figner på en eller anden måde. Jeg mener, de er mine navnesøstre.
– Navnet skulle også symbolisere det grønne køkken. Altså det mad, jeg laver. Og hvad er bedre end ”spirende”?
– Og så kan jeg godt lide, at spirende også er et symbol på noget, der vokser. På en positiv måde.
– Plus det er da lidt sjovt… Jeg mener, man kan jo ikke spire en fignen. Jeg er så morsom, jeg ved det godt.

Håber, I kan lide navnet. Jeg glæder mig til at blogge som Sprouted Fig.
