The name game

This is inspired by Maxi Cane, who I linked to recently and can't be bothered doing it all over again. Suffice to say his 'What Would You Rather Do?' blog is one of the funniest things I've read in aeons. And I know my funny.

We play a game in work, myself and Davros. We come up with two separate names and apply the following rule:

If you had to go through life with the following name, you couldn't change it by Deed Poll or anything, which would you choose?

Then we proceed to our own little game of either/or.

So...

Dunstable Carrutherknobble or Melwith Lippe Swillager?

Arse Face or Purple Scrotum?

Lampoon Michaeltown or Reginald Thump?

Minge Razor or Uncle Meercat?

Donald Munch or Easter Antichrist?

Jersey Cream or Soft Bite?

Viscount Flower or Sticky Plant?

Lord Gadge or Ned Lord?

Howz Yerfather or Screwz Yerdaddy?

OK, that's enough of that, except to say that these are all names of people in the real world. This blog needed that touch of authenticity.

I think Wellington Farset is a sublime name.

Radge said...

I tend to agree.

Niamh B said...

Man Bag or Bag Man?

This is a real dilema - first three letters of my surname and first three letters of my intended - if we're gonna go with a combo name it'd be one of the above, we probably won't then...

Terence McDanger said...

And one day, the name Terence McDanger was born, and I saw that it was good, so I robbed it.

You don't recall this Radge as I've mentioned it before and was met with glazed expression. But yes, you gave birth to me Radge.

Mamma! Mamma!

Radge said...

Niamh - That is indeed a quandary.

Terence - Really??? I vaguely remember... Really? Class. I named you. That's great.

Meadow said...

I can't believe you listed my given name in this post.

How could you, Melwith?

Maxi Cane said...

Heratio Wham Bar Sprinkly Bits, nice to meet you.

Guiltius Maximus would be an unfortunate moniker if you were of the sort to find yourself before the judiciary, on occasion.

Guiltius Minimus would be an unfortunate name to have if you were a gang member, and already suspected of being an undercover cop.

Radge said...

Quiet, Jersey!

Maxi Bits it's good to know you.

Flann - If Donnie Brasco has taught us anything, don't ever call yourself Lefty.
