I love names and take huge pleasure in finding the perfect names for my characters in my books, stories, and puzzles. I also love finding weird and wonderful names out in the real world. In London, for example, my father often pointed to the irony of the kosher butcher named Speck – Speck is German for bacon.
There are also made up names that are perfect – the optician called Seymour Clearly comes to mind. So for this puzzly blog post are offer you a selection of names and occupations – all fictitious of course.
Joe King – Comedian
Bridget Quick – Engineer
Teresa Green – Botanist
Lucy Lastic – Seamstress
Robin Banks – Burglar
Henrietta Lott – Competitive eater
Mark Miwurds – Prophet
Bill Poster – Advertising executive
And a pair of philosophers – Wanda Wai and Ivor Notion.
But that’s just the start I’m sure you can come up with some others – I’d love to hear yours in the comments!
