I never caught the Porn Star Name bandwagon. I did not put the name of my first pet together with the name of the street I grew up on. (Mostly because I really don’t remember my first pet.)
However, when I read on another blog how to find your Viking name, I wanted to do it too. Take the 1st syllable of your favorite alcoholic drink and the 1st syllable of the town you grew up in + the word “the” + your worst characteristic = your Viking name.
I am Winenor the Critical.
I tried to engage my husband in this game tonight. (OK, maybe my timing was bad because he was poring over maps of deer hunting regions when I did it, but hey! how about a little attention, please?!) He kind of listened when I explained the porn name part, but then I lost him after asking (no – dragging out of him) what his favorite beverage would be. He was not very cooperative going forward from there.
I have taken the liberty of choosing a name for him: Beernor the Intolerant.
But then again, what about Beernor the Stick in the Mud? Beernor the Humorless? Beernor the Tunnel-Visioned? Beernor the Going Overboard With the Deer-Hunting Maps? Beernor the Grumpy? (wait- maybe that one’s me…)
