I've noticed more new names and I'm always curious as to the reasons behind the names.

Mine is a quote not Shakespearen from StepBrothers. I needed something quick and that's the film I was watching

Guns and Roses song + Peppa Pig DVD = humorous melange of adult/child related material. hmm

I was missing my old home (London) and Fackinell and Fuxake were my favourite mix up words at the time.

A homage to my favourite 80s cartoon smile

I think Patrick star is a bad bellend. I prefer Mr Krabs.

The book - Partridge, we need to talk about Alan.

One of the DJs at "North Norfolk Digital" was called Wally Banters and his show "Wally Banters Junk Box"

I p*ssed myself when I heard it.

I saw the advert for birdseye potato waffles on youtube shortly before signing up.

I'm thinking of changing it to Bentobox Wafflesmack after going on the benedict cumberbatch name generator earlier tonight.

From my favourite card game, Euchre. Many a happy drunken night in my misspent yoof passed playing euchre and nowadays we play with my DBro and DSIL whenever we get a chance to see each other (they live v v far away, like 5000 miles).

Plus Hearts as in Love are better than Diamonds as in Riches. Love conquers all, innit.

A Morrissey song. Bit dull really. Vicar in a tutu was taken angry grin

Mine was chosen because it looks like eyes peering at you oddly.

Well in my head it does. grin

212amveryupset Mon 18-Aug-14 02:14:36

It's 2.12am and I'm very upset.

BigFatFatty Mon 18-Aug-14 02:16:24

Aww, 212... sad

The cat was sitting on me.

MummyBeerest Mon 18-Aug-14 02:36:17

I felt like a bad mother like Joan Crawford.

And I like beer. And puns.

EleanorAbernathy Mon 18-Aug-14 02:41:27

Mine's the real name of the crazy cat lady from The Simpsons, and I've got 9 cats (I try not to throw them at people though!) smile

Funniest line from Big Bang Theory (imo!) makes me titter every time!!

(in its context - only funny if you've seen it)

Fr Ted is my favourite sitcom, plus I wish I had a non ecumenical catch all phrase like it to get me out of tough questions!

(It's a bugger to type every time I log in though...)

I needed a name change and I was watching call the midwife.

darksideofthemooncup Mon 18-Aug-14 02:56:44

I was a bit drunk and listening to Pink Floyd. And no, I have never used a Mooncup.l

Basically it's just the phrase I use most often.....

AdoraBell Mon 18-Aug-14 03:08:41

It fits. Even though I don't smoke.

NinjaLeprechaun Mon 18-Aug-14 03:23:22

I asked my daughter a question once, and she did not reply "a ninja leprechaun" but, due to an apparent auditory processing disorder, that's what I heard.
The Ninja Leprechaun has become something of a character in our house as a result. grin
