I'm planning on brewing some Sima (a Finnish short-brew mead) and bottling it for Christmas gifts this year. But if I do that, I'm going to need some fancy labels, and a fancy label needs a good name. It's a light, slightly fizzy, barely alcoholic honey wine, so I figure something playful would be good. So if any of you Triviaites who're good with words feel like suggesting something, any and all names will be considered!

Here are the ideas I have so far (mostly suggestions from friends) -

* Howler's Mead (with drawing of a howling wolf)
* Pirate Goblin (with drawing of said critter)
* Drunken Goblin (with drawing of a goblin downing a tankard)
* Viking *something* (no clue what the 'something' would be yet, but with a drawing of a viking helm and tipped over drinking horn)

*Sister Mary Mead (a nun who had a hit with 'The Lord's Prayer' in the 1970s)
*Runny Mead {where King John signed the Magna Carta).
*High, Honey!

Bee Happy - your label could show bees in various poses.

As it is such a gentle drink......

Mead in Heaven - maybe bees with halos on the label

Not much a mead (or any other drink!) drinker but the first Mead that comes to me is Saint Mary Mead, where a certain Miss Jane Marple lived laugh No idea on the design however smile

These are some good ideas! I especially like Saint Mary Mead, cause I kinda devoured the Miss Marple books when I was in high school. I also like the "Runny Mead / Runnymede" Pun, cause i'm a horrible history geek, but I don't know how many of us heathen Americans would get the joke.

I'll have to think on some of these! You all did fabulously!
