Mr Bean

@TVDenimChap Your new name is…

GABLE

"The iconic Gone With the Wind star Clark’s surname was brought into the first-name mix when Weeds ’ Kevin Nealon picked it for his son.

The cast of Golden Age and later Hollywood characters is ever increasing, now including Harlow, Chaplin, Flynn and Monroe."


#183

nominative determinism would mean they would grow up to enter the oxbridge boat race though


#184

ooh my son’s name. great name Jezza (I mean Row-Row!)


#185

Tired but only here for three more hours, sneaky desk selfie. Only here for a new name, let’s hope it’s a good one (not a veiled threat)

Small thermonuclear detonation behind my ear, nothing to worry about.


#186

@rich-t Your new name is…

ETHAN

"The name Ethan is a boy’s name of Hebrew origin meaning “strong, firm”. Ethan is a name that succeeds in being at once classic and fashionable, serious and cheery, strong and sensitive. There are several Ethans in the Old Testament, the most prominent of whom is praised for his wisdom.

His prime historic namesake is Ethan Allen, Revolutionary War hero; in literature the name is associated with Ethan Frome."


#187

Will you be publishing a methodology as to how you’ve arrived at these?


#188

I look at your faces and the name comes to me. I’m an oracle of sorts, really.

If I already know your name/you in irl I have to try to remember times of yore when I didn’t know you, and that requires some witchery.


#189

Do you work at CERN?


#190

HB HS!


#191

Happy with this, contacting the Royal Courts of Justice now to make it official.


#192

More names…coming soon!

(off to a meeting)


#193

:heart: My boy’s name


#194

Such a good name


#195

Thanks, I’ll take it - Temple Grandin is a GBOL.

You may now all call me Temple.

Tem for short? Hmm, I’ll have to think about it.


#196

I was also tempted by Blaise. Like Blaise Pascal.


#197

I think you made the right call.


#198

Solid methodology.


#199


#200

Currently losing the will to live. I’m trying to reverse engineer some code someone wrote 10 years ago. No documentation. Yet again ridiculously tired.
