Worms are simple creatures, quietly, discreetly chewing their way
each day. Little do they know how much we enjoy the outcomes of their
|Squirmy the Squire
Shapes and colours stroke my breast Beneath a shaded Sun
Where I squirm inside patterns
In a dance with the Worms.
Like the engine. You know -- the rotary. Rhythmically, quietly, the
powerhouse that services the earth beneath us. Wankel the worm at work.
Because to the worm there is but one purpose in life, and they are
most "earnest" and single-minded in accomplishing that purpose. That
is to aerate the soil and make it so people like me can plant flowers,
vegetables, etc. to their heart's content. ~ Barbara
"Wee Willie the wriggling Worm" is my name for that excuse of a worm
flitting across your page. Actually, it reminds me of a snake
of its speed. None of my worms move like that in the heavy clay
in my gardens. ~ Liz
Why you ask?
1. Because it is red.
2. Because it slithers seductively through
the moist earth.
3. I just realized it's a play on Ruby slipper....
and we're not in Kansas anymore, Toto! ~ Nancy
This name has a bit of an oriental flavour to it. Almost makes
him/her sound honourable, which a worm is in a garden. After all isn't
this what worms do all the time?
(In One End and Out the Other)
O'little earthworm what joy you bring,
Taking plain dirt making plants sing.
A grand little guy living under my Trillium;
You deserve a grand name
I dub thee Sir William! ~ Tina
A name for a worm, now let me see-
Something spiffy, wouldn't you agree-
Red it is -- like a shiny sports car -- wriggling, but not bothering
to go too far!
Doing a job that's important enough. digging and aerating and that
So the only name that will be just right
Is " Motor", driving out of sight!
As to worms - I always call them after my uncle who gardens and gardens
and gardens here in B. C. (and I'm not far behind).
Same as the squiggle (Til Duh) on the keyboard, just above the "tab"
key. Like in - till duh earth. It might heighten awareness of it too
there's one in my web page address, and nobody gets it when I say
Harold, the worm So simple and bold,
You're one in a million (A snack for a toad).
You're good and reliable Efficient it's true,
But here I must say it I do love you too!
Never knows if it's coming or going, but whichever, it gets
double the sexual pleasure we do.
It sounds like the name of a British butler and with that image in
mind, I can't imagine a better garden servant than a worm.
I think his name should be " First Gear " because of his speed, and
power he has to dig through the ground. ~ Elaine
For obvious reasons. ~ Bob
I Wanted to make him sound a little classy!! Spanish version makes
him sound sort of suave don't you think? and Boro relates to the habit
of these little creatures who amazingly bore holes and slither in and
of the soil with the ease of a matador whipping his cape!!

Because George is my Dad's name and he's a cool guy. A critter
as cool as a worm also deserves a cool name, so I recommend George. ~ Heather
"Sardines my butt! Try living in a worm bin!" ~ Bruce
There once was a worm named "Slimy"
Who thought all composts
a bit grimy.
So he wrote a new book
That didn't get a look
Because it was written in rhyme.
(you really didn't expect me to write rhymy . . . did you???)
Well, what does a worm do? (quote from Red Dwarf)
"It poos in the garden and makes the flowers grow."
(quote from my 5 year old)
Most of my worms are named Frank. Why Frank? Because worms never
lie. When they tell you something, it's the truth. And the
more you know about worms, the more you realize that there is a lot you
can learn from them.
I solemnly swear that I care for worms and really do compost to the
best of my ability, so help me Sod.
Please accept the name of SOD for our sacred worm.

This is something that I think came from Finland. It may not be a worm
(jee) name -- translation anyone?
I managed to have this translated and learned that it means, "You're
cute." As I don't know if it means me or the worm, I'll let it stand.
Because he moves the earth and is so-o-o-o-o enduring.
Hercules was strong and patient. Also, Worm and Hercules are
so wonderfully .... diametric. And as you know we are into metric
... inchworm is out.
I name every critter that ventures into my garden, and stays for a
while, Chet. First came Chet the chickadee, then Chet the chipmunk, I
have a laptop computer named Chet. I don't name the deer Chet though,
get more colourful names which go something like @!#?%!.
The name is for two great countries, STATELY for the United States
and CANUCK for Canada. Our friend, STATELY CANUCK, can freely travel
our countries without a passport or having to stop at the border patrol
stations. He can't be shot down by wayward pilots or sunk by wandering
ships at sea. He is ours to share.
~ Mike and Ann
Like his namesake, he works steadfastly in the background, keeping
the rhythm for all of us in the endless circle of life.
A worm by any other name is just a meal.
~ Mary Ann
I call the worm Ko'e because that is the Hawaiian word for worm
here. It's important enough that his name capitalized.
