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?

lol @ ptraci grin

I'm here too - though I admit to being disappointed that Evadne Cake was taken.

Hamnpork

wink I like it though xx

MissAliceBand Fri 15-Feb-13 00:48:48

Nah, I changed again. This one suits me better.

 Nil Mortifi Sine Lucre

I think I'm going with this. I was due a NC anyway...

ZebraOwl Fri 15-Feb-13 01:42:50

My name's not a Pratchett one but I do get all excited on spotting them and putting far too much thought into What Mumsnet Would Be Like On The Disc surely Mr P needs to get on that one soon?...

Seasonal name change for me too!

Have been WaitingforStork since ttc, took us a year and she's now 6 months old so due a change anyway i reckon.

brilliant thread! I fell for my H good and proper when he said something along the lines of "you think like Granny Weatherwax, but you ARE like Nanny Ogg." . . grin

I have never changed my name, but this thread is tempting me!

YANBU grin

YANBU smile smile

There are lots of names taken though, it took me a while with the wikipedia list of characters!

I want a new name now!

jojane Fri 15-Feb-13 08:02:45

I'm desperately trying to think of a name, might have to browse through the books later, havnt read them for years, DH has every single one as his nan always buys him them when they come out. He introduced me to them when we were students, I used to lay in bed all day reading them!

EskSmith Fri 15-Feb-13 08:56:55

There are a awful lot of taken but not used discworld names
This is my favourite every character from the first ever discworld book I read. If had been wondering for years about what happened to her until she came back.

My Dd2. Is named after Granny Weatherwax smile

Bugrit

(Have just changed back in honour of this thread, though tbh didn't use it much)

I nearly went for 'Sqidapedoyt' or 'Honiaryup' - both slightly obscure references from The Truth. smile

Well, I popped my 10 month old down in her downstairs cot this morning (long story but my SPD's so bad I don't trust myself taking her upstairs for naps so have her old cot downstairs until this bump's born) to go grab her breakfast - came back to find she'd pulled an entire shelf of discworld paperbacks off the bookshelf and into her cot.

Either she's incredibly advanced - or Wyrd Sisters is just great to chew on.

MsWetherwax Fri 15-Feb-13 12:26:55

Yanbu - you see quite a lot of them about these days!

mrsSOAK Fri 15-Feb-13 12:57:22

I am only very tentatively discworld named but no-one has ever realised sad

MrsSonky Fri 15-Feb-13 13:18:55

I wanted "Visit the infidel with explanatory pamphlets" - too long

"Mrs Cake" - taken. Ysabell I love her too. You could be Ludmilla Cake.

YouTheCat Fri 15-Feb-13 13:31:12

Is it bad that I spent a good half hour nagging explaining to my dd (who is 18) why I think she really needs to go to school this afternoon, despite the fact that she has bad cramps? And that I fully intend to spend this hour and a half to myself, reading I shall wear Midnight and watching Time Team. grin

MissAliceBand Fri 15-Feb-13 14:01:15

It amuses me that there are more Weatherwaxes than Oggs. It should be t'other way round surely.

I do love Nanny Ogg though - I have her cook book. It is fab.

doyouwantfrieswiththat Fri 15-Feb-13 14:06:27

Bananananananana surprise anyone?

Ooh I wonder if Erzulie Gogol is free. I've never name changed before. I can change back to blackcurrants if I want to, right? I've been blackcurrants on here for years now.

ApprenticeSeamstress Fri 15-Feb-13 14:46:39

And me smile
