I just love it. What I really want to know is where is cheery littlebottom? According to mn the name is taken but I've never seen it.
So far I have spotted
MrsTerryPratchett
NannyOgg
Greebo
IShallWearMidnight
TiffanyAching

And quite a few others I can't recall right now.
Who haven't I spotted / remembered and where is cheery?

There's CMOTDibbler. There should be a GrannyWeatherwax but that was taken when I was looking for a TP name - hence, not discworld but one of your gang. I think there might be a MistressWeatherwax (damn why didn't I think of that?)

My name is from Good Omens rather than Discworld, do I count?

GrimmaTheNome Thu 14-Feb-13 18:38:13

There's also
leonardofquirm
WheresMyCow
sibylvimes
Lady Margolotta

I'm sure there is a Magrat somewhere

Colleague at work got sooo pissed off when she proudly told us her guaranteed no one will know it pub quiz question - what's the name of Death's horse, and three of us in the staffroom promptly turned around and replied "Binky"

GrimmaTheNome Thu 14-Feb-13 18:50:50

oh, I think there's someone with Binky in their name too.
Why aren't you Maurice ? wink

If I didn't love my name so much I'd have a Discworld one. They always make me smile.

Me grin

BatmanLovesVodkaAndCherryade Thu 14-Feb-13 19:11:04

I used to be BatmanLovesVimes.

But I love vodka and cherryade more...

AdoraBelleDearHeart Thu 14-Feb-13 19:15:32

And there's me smile but it's too similar to someone else so I don't use it.

RobAnybody Thu 14-Feb-13 19:16:59

So I'll use this one instead.

Haven't got one myself but I do like to spot them.

I'm sure there was an Angua-based name at one point....

Grimma - I wanted your name, but you snaffled it first smile.

manicbmc Thu 14-Feb-13 19:18:45

I should change my name to 'You' like Granny Weatherwax's kitten. grin

PerditaXDream Thu 14-Feb-13 19:35:37

You just prompted me to change mine. I think I like it.

Ooh I'm tempted to change my name now...will get my thinking cap on grin

My cats are called You and Greebo grin

Bah all the names I wanted were taken. Will try again when I have more time!

CarrottsCarrot Thu 14-Feb-13 19:54:17

This thread inspired me to wear this for a bit.

<Twirls and bows>

I got name checked. I am so happy.

I have also seen a FutureNannyOgg or something like that. I find all the people with TP names (I include Good Omens and The Bromeliad etc.) to be lovely people. Possibly excepting myself grin

HerrenaHarridan Thu 14-Feb-13 20:14:42

I think SybilVimes is possibly LadySybil now?
Anathema of course you count MrsTerryPratchett does. Although I've always wondered if that's a double bluff and she really is?!
I tried every combination of grannyweatherwax I could think of with no luck! Also eskarinasmith but I've yet to see that.
Hi carrot grin

<Winks> Say no more, nod's as good as a wink. I'll tell the DH (you know who) that you are talking about him...

HerrenaHarridan Thu 14-Feb-13 20:19:13

LadyMargolotta yes I definitely remember seeing her somewhere recently.
Definitely never seen Angua, I'm sure I would have noticed.
Thinking about it I think I remember seeing gaspode at one point.
Oh and definitely a Cohen

HerrenaHarridan Thu 14-Feb-13 20:20:26

Oh and wasn't there a nobbynobbs at one point?
