Need help naming my school newsletter

Post by Archived Topic » Wed Dec 26, 2001 5:05 am

I am responsible for our newsletter and I need help in developing a catchy title. We are an educational institution with Great Rivers in our name. Our logo is picture of the state of Arkansas with a "boat wheel" on it. I need help!!

Clarification: When I said "boat wheel" I meant the steering wheel of a boat "The Helm". Used to be the name of our newsletter and no one seemed to know what that meant... PLEASE HELP...

Well, a quick scan of common nautical terms might give some guidance. You didn't mention the level of your school - middle school, high school, college, etc.

Other terms that might be fitting for a newsletter (The Helm was pretty good) might include:

The Sextant (just as likely as helm to be too obscure)
The Masthead (double entendre, of course)
The Wake
Deep Draft (sort of double entendre if it's informal or very literary)
The Keel, The Rudder
Full Steam
Full Sail
Currents

You get the idea.

This is difficult. I'm usually pretty good with this stuff. Here are two weak attempts:
