Behind the Blog Name

Just a quick post here before I get back finishing up cleaning my apartment. I thought it might be interesting to do a post about my blog name. Dorigamii.

The name is actually based on a nickname that my boyfriend calls me, which is Dori. It's based on my last name, which is quite short - Do. When we first started dating, he made up a nickname for me, Dorito. As in the chip. After a while, it morphed into Dori, and these days, he calls me that exclusively, ha.

It was him that actually came up with this nickname, which is basically a combination of that name, Dori, and the word Origami. I thought the idea was cute and would make for a good logo, so I created a few concepts, and the header was born.

I'd love to hear how you got your blog name, fellow bloggers! Let me know in the comments.


  1. Haha that's really cute! My blog name was just born out of what I was using for all my social media handles at the time, I kind of wish I'd picked something else.

    1. I like your name! It's from Harry Potter, right?

  2. Aw, that's sweet! My English name is not easy to abbreviate, so only my Chinese-speaking family ever uses a nickname for me.

    I got my blog name from a quote by Albert Camus, who I used to like reading in high school. I still like his work, but I feel like identifying with it so much was maybe a tiny bit pretentious of me.

    1. Haha, I've definitely heard the quote, so I realized where your blog name was from. I always think of it as the seasons change.
