My youngest is called Isobel Susan. I tried to have it spelt Ysabell but my wife wouldn't let me.

So she has two Discworld names Ysabell and her daughter Susan.

Belive it or not but my full name is;

Mike Visit-The-Ungodly-With-Explanatory-Pamphlets Poohb Carrot

So you can see I'm named after Captain Carrot.

Coincidence or what?

PS Isn't one of the student wizards called Mad Dog whose real name is Adrian Turnipseed? (I could be wrong coz I haven't checked)

There's also Undecided Adrian from Going Postal, but I understand he's named after a real person as is Sane Alex from Going Postal. :wink:

Umm.. I don't get it :? But I'm suddenly very hungry!


EDIT: Tony, are you being a cheeky editor again? Or am I so delirious with hunger from my diet that I'm seeing things? :lol:

I've been known as 'Ogg' for years, even by my real life buddies, msn Ogg, forum Ogg and online gaming Ogg (sanctioned by Sir Terry himself!) and as my christian name is Darren...you have before you the real Darren Ogg, Nanny's Son of course :)
I know, I try to keep it quiet as signing the autographs takes a few hours.
