Names, Damned Names, and Statistics

Yet another meme: I saw that Kevin J. Maroney was doing this, and it looked like fun.

1. YOUR ROCK STAR NAME: (first pet and current street name)
(I've never actually had a pet that was mine, not that I can remember. My kid brother had a cat, and the boys have two hamsters and two fish now, but I've never felt the need to have an animal on call. Still, Lincoln is a plausible Emo-ish one-name rock star.)

2. YOUR MOVIE STAR NAME: (grandfather/grandmother on your dad's side, your favorite candy)
Everett Jelly Bean
(Doesn't work at all.)

3. YOUR "FLY GIRL/GUY" NAME: (first initial of first name, first two or three letters of your last name)
(Another non-starter; I think this only works if the first name starts with a consonant.)

4. YOUR DETECTIVE NAME: (favorite animal, favorite color)
Kangaroo Black
(Do most people have a "favorite animal" that they can think up quickly? I didn't.)

5. YOUR SOAP OPERA NAME: (middle name, city where you were born)
Colin Albany
(That one works.)

6. YOUR STAR WARS NAME: (first 3 letters of your last name, last 3 letters of mother's maiden name, first 3 letters of your pet's name)
Whetis Har
("Har" is for "Harriman," the first-named of the current pets.)

7. JEDI NAME: (middle name spelled backwards, your mom's maiden name spelled backwards)
Niloc Retals
(I used her mom's maiden name, just to foil identity thieves with way too much time on their hands.)

8. PORN STAR NAME: (middle name, street you grew up on)
Colin Hillcrest
(Bom Chicka Bo-Bom.)

9. SUPERHERO NAME: ("The", your favorite color, the automobile you drive)
The Black Windstar
(Hm. A white guy can't use the color "black," or any synonyms thereof, in his superhero name. And "Windstar" leads to all sorts of bad jokes.)
