What’s in a name?

My husband asked me to help him make his own stamp so he can letterbox with me. I’ve been boxing for almost a year now. I just used the name I use for crafting & mail exchanges as my trail name. So how do I help him pick a trail name? What should we use in the meantime?

I would pick something with some versatility. As a noble pig, I have a lot of different choices if I get bored with my signature stamp image. There are plenty of pictures of pigs to choose from. Also, my name gives me the ability to capitalize on my nature, as in, I could plant boxes near BBQ places, or near old pig iron furnaces, of which there are many in my area. People at events will call you by your name as well. I find that, oddly, people feel uncomfortable calling me piggy, which amuses me. Also, the longer your name is, the longer it takes to write it in the logbook! Hope this helps :)

Simplest solution would be something that ties to you. The two of you could become LadyRisa and LordRisa.

When I started letterboxing, my husband would tag along for events and for longer hikes. My letterboxing friends referred to his as the man-with-no-trailname .... which he didn't particularly like.

One day he declared that he never intended to go LBing without me, so his trail should be I'm w/Her. and so he is!!
