I am not French.
My maiden name is Wolf and every good domain name with the word Wolf in it was taken.
BUT-we did get to spend some time in Paris last summer and it’s still with me…so Loup is the French word for Wolf.
My husband and I really thought about a good blog name and came up with InTheLoup.com. We thought it was so clever. ‘In the Loop!’ we laughed. ‘It’s a double entendre! It sounds like, stay in the loop, in English, but means Wolf in French! HaHaHa! How brilliant!’
But of course, if you pronounce the word Loup properly, it is pronounced Loo. So that would be…IntheLoo…dot com.
And while that title still seemed very internationale encompassing the French word for Wolf AND the British term for Toilet, I thought better of it.
Triple entendres seem ominous and I don’t want to start off on the wrong foot. So I scooped up the available domain, La Maison du Loup, or The House of Wolf and here we are.
This blog currently charts our family’s recent NYC sabbatical. My husband is on tour throughout the US with the 25th Anniversary tour of Les Miserables. He somehow tricked us into joining him.
