My middle name is "Bliss." It's a relatively unusual name, but it's easy to find in commercial settings, including a jewelry store in San Francisco's Pier 39:

A restaurant in Barcelona:

A vintage coffee can:

A rose ("Sheer Bliss," which grows in my garden):

And, of course, it pops up a lot in ad copy:

I love my "Bliss" name. Thanks, Mom and Dad!


  1. Ditto here, Sis! It bugs me a little that the word/name is so overused in ads and products, but only because we were a “Bliss” long before it became so popular and overused…but its a happy name, and I’m happy to own it -- and also proud of it because, as you know, there are many Blisses in our heritage who have done grand and noble things.
