Idle hands, etc...
Friends & I sort of invented a name game where the name says something about the individual. They pop into your head from time to time. You MUST write them down because they aren't necessarily logical enough to stay in your head if you don't. Here is a sample...

Dr. Daryll B. Payne, DDS
Sam & Ella's Cafe
Lou Scannon, senior policy advisor
Senator Upton O. Goode
Candice B. Love
Vera V. Cohen
Vera D. Keys
O. Dewy Hafta
Ike Witt
Uriel Goode
Farrell E. Goode
Ellis D. Tripp
Wendy Boscomb
Myra Gretz
Albie Dare
Justin O. Foo
Judah O. Foo
Amin O. Mann

Amati, for shame!

Don't you remember Justin Thyme, who always seemed to show up last minute?

Think about it.

Mike Hawk...reminds me of a time when a bunch of us were in a Chinese restaurant and somebody had called the restaurant and gotten one of the waitresses, who knew very little English, to go from table to table looking for...lets just call it the very impolite female equipment...diabolical humor, nobody in the place could keep a straight face. Mike...well take a guess. diabolical.

Amati, for shame! Don't you remember Justin Thyme, who always seemed to show up last minute? Think about it. Now that one I get. But if game is that the name is tied in to being something about the individual, I must admit that the original list of names still mostly stumps me (well, I do get the "Dentist Payne" one).

From the San Luis Obispo, CA phone book:

Wiwat Sompusi (the listed number rang a local fraternity at the U!)

And, I had a relative who married into an unfortunate name:

Ina Pigg
