"It's that other doxy's fault" -- the studly Eric Duke

Yes, I'm referring to that tattooed denizen of the sultry swamps, Ginger Laharpe!

She tempted me and I did eat. You betcha.

So here we go with the Other Names Meme:

1. WITNESS PROTECTION NAME: (mother’s & father’s middle names): Victor Bell

2. NASCAR NAME: (first name of your mother’s dad, father’s dad): Charles Victor 
- though I prefer what grandpa was always called: C. B. Victor

3. STAR WARS NAME: (the first 2 letters of your last name, first 4 letters of your first name): Stpaul – oh my, not him again!

4. DETECTIVE NAME: (favorite color, favorite animal): Blue Dog 
(those effing Bushocrats, ¡de ningún manera, José!)

5. SOAP OPERA NAME: (middle name, city where you live): Eric Duke – Albuquerque is known as Duke City, so I took liberties
. Then again, when you are starring in the telenovelas you can probably take a few liberties here and there.

6. SUPERHERO NAME: (2nd favorite color, favorite alcoholic drink, optionally add “THE” to the beginning): NO, this one just is not going to work – The Green Rhône – can I use Russian? Zilony Rhone?

7. FLY NAME: (first 2 letters of 1st name, last 2 letters of your last name): Paid – makes me feel like a stamp on an invoice

8. GANGSTA NAME: (favorite ice cream flavor, favorite cookie): Dulce de Leche Pepparkakar – hmmm, how about Dulce Pepper?

9. ROCK STAR NAME: (current pet’s name, current street name): Cocoa Meadows – no pet, so my largest teddy bear’s nickname

10. PORN NAME: (1st pet, street you grew up on): Sarge Madison

I don't know about the rest but this method of creating a name for porn acting has long been used, according to urban legend anyway. I have flirted in public with a few porn stars in my day (when I was thirty-odd years younger and sixty pounds lighter) but never actually met them to ask whether it be true.

I tossed in a version of the subjunctive in that last sentence just for Padre Mickey.

You will find several rounds of this in the comments at Ginger's place.

Sarge Madison? Are you serious?

I grew up on a street with a number, so I can't even answer that question. :-)

Paul said...

Look for my new video.


Yes, Sarge was the name of our German shepherd. Though I was in a few houses as an infant and we moved from Clinton to Madison when I was 3, Madison Avenue was the street I grew up on. Visited the neighborhood during the road trip.

Well, you being a respectable seminarian and all, I should hope you couldn't answer such a question.

Me, being a disreputable leftover of the hippie era....

Kirstin said...

Respectable, ha. You know I go to drag shows for credit!

FranIAm said...

Sarge!!!!!!!!!!!! I love it.

And Duke. Oh you.

Jane R said...

The rock star and porn names are fab! Though Cocoa Meadows could also be a porn name, for a woman...

Sarge Madison. Very studly.

(Just Sidney. My mother doesn't have a middle name. Though I could be Sidney Blank. Or Nada Sidney.)

2. NASCAR: Bill Morris
(William Morris sounds too much like the literary agency, besides which everyone, including his grandchildren, called him Bill. Except for my grandmother, who called him Will.)

3. STAR WARS: Reja


5. SOAP OPERA: Carol Greensboro (though I'm thinking the old spelling would be much more apt: Carol Greensborough, and maybe add an e onto the first name: Carole Greensborough. Better, no?)

6. SUPERHERO: Purple Vino.
(When I first wrote down all these names over at Fran's I put down Vino, which I figured was legit and sounded better. I was tempted to write "Chateauneuf du Pape" but that really isn't very superheroish. So that was almost Rhone, like you.)

7. FLY: Jant

8. GANGSTA: Cassis Tuile
(French names for gangsta name...)

9. ROCK STAR: Maya Pavlova Northlake
(!? Doesn't quite work. Maya Northlake isn't too bad.)

10. PORN: Furry Brune (!!!!!)
(The cat's real name was Fancy That because he was a pedigreed cat but being four years old, I renamed him Furry Flufftail Purry Pussy --I know, but hey, I was four years old-- and he was "Furry" for short. Either way, the name works for this. Oy.)

Have you noticed the #10 names are the best? Mickey's is "Gussie China Sea."

Grandmère Mimi said...

Paul, you have great names culminating in the greatest - Sarge Madison. It's good that Sarge is Paid.

Stpaul? Is that what we must call you now?

I did Grandpère's, and none of them were really funny.

Grrr. Them Blue Dogs keep croppin' up.

My porn name would be "Lucky Singing Trees." Somehow that doesn't sound very sexy....
