Posted:Hello to all who know me and all who don't! More won't than will cause i haven't been on for a while. But anyway, I request all you lovely people's help! I need a name! I've found in it hard to give myself a name and so for a very long while i was simply Insert_Name_Here, but no more! I have found that the best names are those that are given by other people - and here's where those that know me have more of an adavantage - i am having a competition! If everyone would like to suggest a name, and you can suggest more than one if you wish, and the name i choose name will be the name i use on HOP, myspace and well, everywhere!



If you don't know who i am and therefore don't know what to suggest, just check out my profile cause that'll give you an idea of what i'm into and check out my gallery cause maybe you do know me but didn't know i am who i am...if you know what i mean...



The Winner will get a personal thank you hug and kiss- and if you live in Britain and i happen to bump into you at a convention/festival, you can have a real thank you hug and kiss!! Sorry to all those who live elsewhere- a virtual hug and kiss will have to do! Of course if this prize is not a big enough incentive then suggestions for the prize can be given as well... within reason...wombats have been suggested by Cantus but i dont have a wombat to give away unfortunately!



Cheers! hug

Posted:Wow! i am amazed with the reaction to this! I'm very impressed with those who have gone to the trouble to make a list - thank you! ubbrollsmile Feel the need to make a few things clear though...

1. I am femail! no 'mr...' thank you biggrin

2: I didn't put down an end date...hmm... i'll have to get back to you

3: No more 'nameless' or names relating to that cause, well, i really do want a name! sorry!

4: Dave, no hugs or kisses cause you didn't even bother to suggest a name. It's no good being cute and sweet and trying to puppy dog eye your way to a hug... ok here's one anyway hug



Laura, you are coming down thursday? that's a nice surprise! especially seeing as you haven't been down to the meet for ages! why haven't you been down?



I'm already considering names for the short list cause you guys have been so good at name conjuring! I'll post the short list eventually but knowing me i'll just keep adding to it! Keep it up guys!

Puppy dog eyes? You can't handle the puppy dog eyes. Claire has seen them but not in person (at least I don't think she has).

Oh, and I did suggest a name. Just not in here and you didn't think it was cool enough frown

How about.... El Clumsy or...

El Clumsy... That's what people from PLAY are just gonna remember me as aren't they?... O well, i guess it was all my fault, with the hitting of myself...and you on the head...and Meck on the nose.... except Ed hitting me - that wasn't my fault.



But dave i did give you a hug! Tell you what, any names suggested in my intro thread, i'll transfer to this one. So, Dave's Name: Head_Protection_Advised You see your name is good enough! I'll consider all names!



Your perfectly welcome to suggest names for someone else, and if they are offering cake rather than hugs and kisses then i would probably understand, but i have to say, hugs and kisses do seem to be the currency on HOP hug kiss



Somehow i think virtual poke would be a mistake...far to many inuendos and looks like this -> umm for those who don't know why i would be called that cause they haven't read my thread... But thanks for the suggestion!



One last thing, i'm changing back to Insert_Name_Here until i choose a name cause some people are getting confused and i don't blame them. In all honesty i don't know why i changed it to name_me anyway cause they both mean the same!

Well everybody i'm on holiday for a week and might not be able to reply or check up on the thread, depending on whether or not i can find an internet cafe or library with internet. So, incase i can't, i hope you'll all keep thinking up names while i'm away and when i get back i will review all of them and post a short list of the ones i like! Have a great week everybody! biggrin

Posted:ooh if i'd known there were prizes on offer i'd've visited this thread sooner. I also see why Yoni offered so very many names (and cheated by using a random name generator)....



Well firstly i'd like to state that if you decide upon "Fire" or "Fyre" anything, likewise anything "Fairy", I will personally set about you with your own stick!



Now the problem, as I see it, is that most of the good names have already been taken. In the time i've spent on this site some really clever name have come and gone. As have some really dreadful name (Robin Greenshoes springs abundantly to mind). Therefore we need to find ones that haven't already been used but are still befitting one such as yourself smile



To that end, I've been a musing and a pondering and a making tea (cos i was all thirsty and tea deprived). And have come up with a few ideas....



Antithesis no idea why, just like it as a word.
Callista Its Greek and means most beautiful. I checked the HoP user lists, its not been used before. Not many Greek speakers about I spose. But then people might think youre a big Ally McBeal fan. So maybe not. Also works with Kallisto which is the same word spelt different. These ancient Greeks were tricky like that
Balsam one of the minstrels from Cantus band on Fraggle Rock. Balsam looks like vaguely like an armadillo and seems to be rather dim-witted. He plays the bongo drums.
Brio ok at this stage I should point out that I get a lot of my names from characters on Fraggle Rock. As is evinced in my choice of this one. Another minstrel from cantus band. Only 1 more band member to go.
Brool ooh from the band tooWhat are the chances.... Youre not liking these are you? I can tell. Well worry not Im sure it cant get any worse oh by the way, Brool is very large, green and monster-like, plays a string instrument not unlike a double bass
Cotterpin - a slightly rebellious and stubborn young Doozer, one of the few (and perhaps only) Doozers who regularly interacts with Fragglesnow if you havent watched fraggle rock then you might not really appreciate any of these names. Perhaps I should change tack somewhat

Chrysanthe more Greek. It means Golden Flower. If nothing else youre getting a good grounding in Greek. Lets try Latin nextFausta its Latin for auspicious or luckySounds pretty I thought No? Ok how about:Eibhlin - smile Which is Irish and comes (by a very convoluted route) from an ancient Germanic word for bird Its pronounced Aveleenyoure not looking convinced okSadh pronounced Siev Means "sweet, goodly" in Irish Gaelic. I can see the downside to it already ok well keep tryingCliodhna Possibly means "shapely" in Irish Gaelic. In Irish legend this was the name of a beautiful goddess. She fell in love with a mortal named Ciabhan and left the Land of Promise with him. And like all these tales, it doesnt end well for either of them Ok last twoDelyth which I think is welsh for pretty. If its not and it means dog poo or something dont be cross. I learn all my welsh from watching S4C (welsh channel 4) and usually all I get to say is telling people that the news is on later, or that its football on after the breakelfld Which I think is a great name, Mostly because itll be good watching people trying to pronounce it (although I think its really easybut thats probably just me). Its Anglo-Saxon. And if youve spotted the theme running through many of the suggestions above then youll most likely know what it means already ubblol



*reads post through* Phew that's a lot of words...

Never let it be said that i do things by half measure wink

Posted:Dude Cantus! you only said you'd written a couple of names down! I may have to forsake every other suggestion by any others and pick one of yours simply on the basis of the amount of effort and research put into every name!... ok maybe not the Fraggle Rock names though... in fact i'll just skim over them entirely... hugI think Callista is doomed whichever way it's spelt cause i'm an Ally McBeal fan if i choose that and apparently a Xena fan if i choose Kallisto, so maybe not... I'm liking alot of the other names though, especially... no on second thoughts i'm not gonna give anything away till i post the short list biggrin



perhaps i shouldn't forsake every other name though... specially not Col's, but Col if i don't pick yours, you're not allowed to hunt me down and kill me ok? despite how much i said it was cool.. and how being a nymph does sound fun... i just don't particularly want Cantus to set about me with my own stick cause it doesn't sound fun... unless he words it differently... tongue



Come on guys! i would like a few more names for the short list before i post it! by the way, not sure i mentioned but the short list i'll post as a poll thread to see which names are best received by others, and if your name made the shortlist then i guess you can vote for it! However if i have a particular favourite i may just use that depite it's popularity... but the higher the no. of votes to a name will influence my decision i assure you biggrin

Have had a look and it's quite cool in spanish but alas spanish or not it's still not a name! i may reconsider it as it does sound cool..

thank you for the effort princess but for me those are a bit too masculine sounding or me... especially the 'HE who laughs' one but thanks anyway!

Dave rolleyes while this joke of me bring a bringer of destruction whenever i have a staff in my hand is hilarlious, you should know that i'm not gonna pick any names that relate to it as until Play i was not like that and i blame you entirely for being plagued with this staff curse! AND i haven't had any staff related accidents since Play either which further points to some sort of staff meddling on your part! ... i'm kidding i was just feeling the festival atmosphere, i think being barefoot all festival went to my head and spurred a crazed staff frenzie! hug

* Jumbalaya
- which is like gumbo, but sounds more interesting.
* Hypergammon
- although you may dislike the whole gammon = pig connection. But it starts with Hyper, which is a plus.
* Chickasaw
- cos it's native american, which is cool, and it sounds like a girl dinosaur, and girls and dinosaurs are cool.
* Fourteen varieties of BLAM!
- this one is my favourite, although it means nothing and it's a bit wordy. But it could be informally shortened to Blam, which is still nice smile

Posted:on seeing cantus and simian's lists i've decided to make mine look prettier and include helpful information to help sway you towards my suggestions. so here they are again:



melliflous (or maybe melliflower) - the former meaning flowing with honey, the latter not really meaning anything as such.


whiffletree - which is some sort of crossbar thing.


gelastica - from "gelastic" meaning to do with laughter.


mimsy - a made up "portmanteau" word from alice through the looking glass that's a blend of flimsy and miserable.


purpura - a skin condition denoted by purple spots or patches.


cuspidora - from "cuspidor" which is a receptacle for spit.



hmm, maybe they were better without definitions. oh well. the sound they make is far more important then what they mean. and rather than having a name that means "pretty girl" in elvish or whatever, don't you think it would be way cooler to have a name that's a rare skin condition? although i wouldn't recommend "epidermolysis bullosa" 'cos that's a bit of a mouthful.
