A Strawberry Singh meme on Names

Ok, the ‘5 Flickr pet peeves’ one may have been Strawberry’s (I’m not sure, I got it 17th-hand or something), this one I definitely got straight from the aggregate accessory fruit’s mouth.

  1. What’s your SL name? Nathaniel Pevensey
  2. What made you choose this name? I was looking at the last names available, and decided that Pevensey seemed up my alley, and then wound up picking a properly Anglo first name to go with a surname that was so Anglo.
  3. What’s your SL nickname, or what do most people call you? (if applicable) ‘Nath’, sometimes ‘Pevensey’ (and very occasionally ‘Pervensey’).
  4. What’s your SL display name? Why do you choose to have one? (if applicable) I’m ‘Nath Pevensey’ in display name. I chose to have one for two reasons. A: ‘Nathaniel’ is a lot to type, and B: some years back I started hanging around at a club in SL where there already was a Nathaniel among the regulars.  After a little uncertainty as to who should be called what by whom for how many cookies, we realized everybody shortened his name to ‘Nat’, while my prior-to-the-club friends called me ‘Nath’, so… it was an easy quick way to make his name and my name different things. 🙂
  5. Do you like your SL name? Yeah, pretty satisfied with it. I do kind of wish I’d done a test drive, as I’m quite sure I would’ve preferred an amusing or clever name, but a ‘normal’ name actually makes me stand out a bit in SL, I find.
  6. If you could change your SL name, what would it be? Oh gosh.  I wouldn’t mind the ‘Drinkwater’ surname, as I know which book about imagined/virtual realities that one’s a reference to and am a particularly huge fan of it.
  7. What’s the craziest/funniest SL name you’ve ever seen?  AI used to collect amusing names back in the day, just giggle myself silly at them.  ‘Analbead String’ is one I used to see occasionally and giggle at, though ‘Eponymous Trenchmouth’ always gets a grin out of me too (and not just because of the awesome shoes).
  8. What’s the coolest (your favorite) SL name you’ve ever seen? This is a tricky one. I really like ‘Unearth Graves’ a lot, though of the folks I see regularly I think ‘Getme Somme’ (we all call him ‘Getty’) wins.

And as a bonus, here’s a photo outtaken from a visit to a RP sim that is Not Harry Potter Related At All.

Styling on photo:
I don’t remember whose hair that was (though it looks like high odds that it’s a Dura group-gift from a while back that I was wearing earlier the day I took the photo).  Pants are ‘Tartan 4’ referenced in a prior post of mine (‘You Are the King of the Divan’), jacket is the L&B ‘Classic’ biker jacket referenced in a prior post of mine (one that bears the coat’s name), skin is Ispachi’s gabriel – creme – shaved (seriously, there’s one photo on here that is not of me in this skin, in over 2 months), eyes are FATEeyes, shoes are Pornstars hi-tops (available from vendors in 9,999 sims around the grid), and I made the shape myself.
The location I forget offhand, but I did link to it on my flickr account.

    • Yeah, she’s since been banned (I’m assuming for griefing, she did a fair bit of that that I could discern), but the name still cracks me up.
      Oh, I totally forgot ‘Hey Abbot’, who I know from Tiny Empires. His name slays me.
