why the name change?
I really loved the name The Ossuary, but I had to change it.
When I started this blog, I didn’t put too much thought (or research) into the naming of the thing. I called it The Ossuary because ossuaries are interesting, and ossuary is just a pretty neat word.
I should have done my homework, because it turned out were already are a handful of apparently well established sites on the Web known as “The Ossuary”:
- ossuary.com: Called “The Ossuary.” Nicely designed site; interesting, morbid content.
- the-ossuary.com: Also called “The Ossuary.” This appears to be a concert photographer’s site.
- If you type in theossuary.com, you get redirected to a site called “Best Horror Movies.” Appears to be a forum for horror movie fans.
I didn’t want to step on anyone’s toes or risk being confused with someone else’s site, so I chose a new name. If you’re wondering what a morthouse is, here you go.
