What should I name my gnome?
My gnome is enjoying his vacation in Switzerland. It has increased his yodeling but it's getting annoying. I'm waiting for the neighbors to complain. Or to start yodeling along with him. Here's a rare recording of him from yesterday.
He's surrounded by tiny conifers. They'll grow less than 3 inches a year, so they'll stay small and tidy. I'm imagining tiny battery powered holiday lights in them next December. And a gift or two for my gnome.
Now that I think of it, my gnome needs a name. What should his name be?
***UPDATE***Oh my. There's now $$$ in on the winning name, thanks to Just Out. The submitter of the winning name gets a $25 gift certificate to Bridges Cafe. I recently had their eggs benedict: ooh la la. Submit your name here or on the Just Out post, and I'll choose the winner Friday morning.

I'm voting for either "Alaska" or "de Plume."
CONFIER? PRETTY BOY? PRETTY GIRL?
Hmm... since your gnome is male, I'm thinking of things like:
If he's yodeling, I'd consider Rick Ola. (Those commercials were annoying, but I still remember them, so I guess they were effective.)
I like Ruprecht, personally.
I don't know why, but he looks like an Oscar to me. He sure is cute.
Ann S. N. Island
You get the picture.
Pablo. Don't ask me why. It just sounds good :)
I asked him and his name is something like "Argotrex"? Argotrix? Something like that.
His name is Manford Krankle and he wants you to bring him his cell phone.
Swiss Mister (with mini-marshmallows)
Gnomo, pronounced NOMO
ha! I have a pick-a-name-win-something thingy on my blog too...weird.
Clarence or Wilbur or Skip
My first impression was Charles, and I love him.
Grumpy. That's what we called my Grandfather, and he kinda looks like him, minus that hat.
I may be late on this, but I am a big fan of the name Jerome the Gnome.
