    What should you call your book club? The Business Name Generator has some ideas.

    If you, like Oprah, Reese, Emma, other Emma, Kaia, and Jenna before you, are planning to start your own book club, your first order of business is to make sure you’re extremely famous—whether via your famous model mother or your famous war criminal father or, sure, your own actual talents.

    Your second order of business, though, is figuring out a name. That’s where Business Name Generator comes in. According to the website, “the business name generator will take keywords you enter and use its matching algorithm to automatically apply the most relevant industries and filters to help you find relevant names.”

    I gave it a whirl with the keyword “literary book club” and the results were as bonkers as they were numerous (I stopped counting after page 11).

    Clubly and Clubopedia sound more like clubs for club enthusiasts than clubs for book enthusiasts, but sign me up for Social Book and Champion Club!

    The clear standout here is Ademia Book, because it seems to borrow both from Academia and Anemia, two things that are of great interest to this iron-deficient bookworm.

    I was unfamiliar with Bismuth, but according to Wikipedia, it’s “a chemical element with the symbol Bi and atomic number 83. It is a post-transition metal, radioactive, and one of the pnictogens with chemical properties resembling its lighter group 15 siblings arsenic and antimony.”

    Sounds pretty literary to me! Though perhaps not as literary as sin itself.

    In any case, I think we’re made a good start here. Catch you at the first meeting of Fine Club this weekend? Come for the underpromise, stay for the overdeliver.
