Just As I Thought

What’s in a name?

I used to collect interesting names, ostensibly for use when I wrote little odd short stories. Among my favorites was W. Wesley Muckenfuss.
It’s been a long time, and I can’t remember all the fun names I came up with, but last night when checking email I was reminding of this pastime — I got 70 spams all at once, and each came from an amusing made-up name. Here for your chuckles are some of my favorites:

  • Cockily H. Teaspoonful
  • Forgoes I. Wiggly
  • Diophantine T. Torpor
  • Peppercorn Q. Slivering
  • Faraday J. Inelegant
  • Baffin H. Pocono
  • Pest H. Spoons

I am so going to use these names next time I have to sign up for something!
