I wonder what Bonnie Anne's last name could be... I bet 1,000 gold pieces it's Clyde. Get it? Bonnie Anne Clyde?
Actually it's Fox, Her brother is Guy Fox ( he plans to blow up the Isle of Dog's docks ) His name is an easter egg referring to the Gunpowder Plot ( to blow up the House of Parliament ) The ringleader's name was Guy Fawkes.

Yeah I know, it's just that a while ago I looked up "punny names" and when I found that... "Haha... that'd be great!"

Thanks Misty, I sure hope you aren't the suing type- almost tossing you from a chair and now the whole exploding head thing and all. Nice save dear Bonnie lass!

Prince Fluffy is pretty funny too (I'm sure he has a complex) and believe me when I say I have at least some 100+ pets and at least half of them cause me to laugh every time I see their names. Just from memory some of the other ones I thought were funny are Scrappy Sniffles, King Daisy, Miss Stinker, Miss Bruno, Captain Pepper (reminds me of The Beatles), a Lil' Labor Golem named Sneaky Dancer, and an Ebon Spectre named Cuddles.

Nice one on the funny nods to Jack Sparrow- Finch/Nightingale, LOL. KI you've done it yet again. I had posted a somewhat funny little 'story' where Ratbeard referenced a Captain Jack Swallow and the Pirates of the Scarabeing in a thread a while back. But I never noticed or paid any mind to Finch and Nightingale.

Actually, that thread is one in somewhat of a sequence of threads where the great and super funny Sam Underhill and I have a bit of fun in the Spiral with the our Captains and crews.

If you aren't too familiar with Sam Underhill, he is quite a witty, funny and brilliant writer. And he had a clever way of "crashing" a thread with some of his funny and intelligent antics. This is a bit off topic, but I thought you might enjoy the shenanigans. Unfortunately I never finished off with the last thread.

I think this is the order they go in, if you are interested. It's a bit to read but hope you enjoy it!

Congrats Valkoor Gunners Mate Rank!
Congrats Valkoor Lieutenant Rank!
Congratulations to Golden Guardian's- gunner's mate!
Valkoor is first mate!!!
Valkoor 1,000 yar!
Well, here I am blushing! Thank you for the references (your check is in the mail Valkoor). Alas, Bob Saves the Cake ends with part four. More works are in the works so to speak, and should One-eyed Jack finds them fit to print... who knows what the future may hold.

But anyway, I'm sure those wonderful Cool Ranch names like Hoss Cartwright and Clint Eastwood have already been mentioned.

On a different ironic note, I have a pirate that has TWO companions both named Night Heart. Another pirate of mine has a companion named Two-gun Bart Canton - the irony is he uses knives.

LOL Taylor Swiftstalker.

Bonnie Anne Clyde--I never would have thought of that! Great thinking on your part, Snow Owl! Some family friends of ours have two donkeys--the first one was named Clyde already, and they rescued another donkey and named it Bonnie.

Noooo, it can't end!! *cries and rereads it* Ahem, anyways, I can't wait to see what else you cook up, Sam! I remember seeing this thread about Sarah Steele and El Toro a while back, and it cracked me up! I think you should expand on it because it would be HILARIOUS!

Wow, two Night Hearts? That must cause some argument when only one party invitation with the name Night Heart on it shows up in the mail!

When I got my Bison Galleon, I named it Stormy Sky since I thought it sounded neat. After that, I sped through Cool Ranch and didn't really care about side quests. When I went back to Cool Ranch because I was having some major trouble in MooShu, I picked up all of the side quests that I could and happened to recruit a Black Storm Raider named Stormy Sky. Fail on my part, I guess. I didn't even know that Bison existed until I recruited him! So now I have a bison and a ship named Stormy Sky.

Don't mention it Sam and you're welcome, payment is more than enough- just make sure to get the last name right....2 of my neighbor's share the same first name of Valkoor! And that's quite a shame about the end of Bob and his Cake. Is there perchance a Tart or Danish in grave need of rescuing...a Twinkie perhaps? Actually I think with what is inside a Twinkie, it could withstand just about anything!

Can't wait to read any of your future works, as I am sure they will be up to par or even better than your other past, wonderful offerings. I will keep a watchful eye out for them in Fan Fiction, that is a guarantee. I actually am hoping to submit a few of my own in the near future.

WHAT??? Did I hear you correctly (sorry, Ratbeard was snoring next to my ear- still off-key too)! Did you say that you have 2 companions that share the same name? I'm guessing that with the name Night Heart they are akin to the thunderous buffalo. If so, talk about Twison the Bison!

And what better way to surprise the enemy then to trick them into thinking you are using a completely different set of weapons, unless Bart's name is actually a reference to his vigorous workout routine and massive Biceps. I'll have to double check, but I actually think that my son has that same mustang companion on his pirate as well.

Nice "hearing" from you Sam!

Has anyone else seen a character dressed all in black named Wesley? (A play on The Man In Black/Westlet from The Princess Bride.)

I also think people could create two characters named Tarloc and Noah and say that they're brothers. (Noahtak and Tarrlok are two brothers from the TV show Avatar: The Legend of Korra.)

One time i was in a battle with another player, and his companion had the name "bob dillan," which was a clear reference to the famous classic singer Bob Dylan! I can't believe it that the developers put that name in for a companion, it was awesome!

I wish Ki was a bit more generous with girl's names. For example they have Cavendish, Thatcher and Mitchell available as last names, yet there is no Margaret to go with them This would have allowed a player to create 3 famous Margarets! Margaret Cavendish ( scientist and writer of the 17th century ) Margaret Thatcher ( British PM ) and Margaret Mitchell ( Gone with the Wind )
And as Nightingale is also available, why couldn't we have Florence? The closest you can get is Flora!

Well, I just saw a player with a name that struck a chord, Aleta!
I was a huge Prince Valiant fan and Aleta was the name of his wife.
So I did a search for the name and got a couple of other Aletas.
Aleta is the name of a character in Darren Shan's The Demonata.
There is even an Aleta Mitchell - American film, tv and theater actress.

One of my family members wishes that KI had included the name Trudy for the girl's names and Snow in the last names. That way he could make Dashing Trudy Snow.
