One more thing...
My friends call me Dooze or Dosen since my last name is Dosenberry.
My middle name is Barrett - if anyone likes this let me know.
Time to go to the gym. I will check back in a few hours.
Toad is definitely better than Todd in terms of domain names. theprimaltoad.com is a good domain name. Maybe if you made the toad look more like a frog I'd actually check out your site!

Haha, that's awesome and made my day.

Think about online businesses that have been highly successful, and you'll be hard pressed to find a company that includes the founder's name. I know a blog is different from a business, but the concept is similar. I say leave your name out of it completely. Especially a name like "toad" that has no primal connotation whatsoever. Instead, think about names for your blog that focus on what you're trying to accomplish, what your content is going to be, who you want to find you, and what you want as an end result. I say start your name choice journey over again. Just my experienced two cents.
Thank you very much for your thoughts.
But, there are hundreds of examples of personalized domain names that are highly successful? Guess what my favorite is...
And, Toad does have to do with primal. Toads hop, leap, etc. I am on a journey of leaping back in time.
Also, I think I will have an advantage if I personalize it in a unique way. I need to go with my gut on this one and stick with Toad. I love it too much.
With the exception of MARK'S daily apple...

I like "The Primal Toad"
Thank you all for your input - I got more then I originally hoped and my family gave excellent input as well.
So far the winner is PrimalToad.com.
But, if someone can convince me otherwise then go ahead and try! I will be registering it Saturday morning
Love it. I think it's good when a name is easy to say, so you can tell your friends "It's primal toad dot com". Funky, funny. have fun!
