A Palin by any other name...



Okay, this is nothing to do with books but I couldn't resist it. A US blogger has created the Sarah Palin Baby Name Generator. Here's the blurb: 'Sarah Palin has picked out an All-American set of names for her children. There's Track, Trig, Bristol, Willow, and Piper. Ever wonder, what would your name be if Sarah Palin was your mother? Well now you can find out!'


Here's what the name generator told me:


Mary, if you were born to Sarah Palin, your name would be: Tank Dent Palin. Who knows, Tank Dent Palin just might be president one day!



Hmmm - sounds strangely appropriate. My husband Ian comes up with the more exotic sounding Mole Valdez Palin. I also ran a couple of my other blog regulars through just to see ...


Graham, if you were born to Sarah Palin, your name would be: Steam Fangs Palin

Vanda, if you were born to Sarah Palin, your name would be: Strangle Thicket Palin

Rachael, if you were born to Sarah Palin, your name would be (wait for it): Strangle Thicket Palin

Now that's just spooky. Have a go.

And for more interesting insights into the Sarah Palin phenomenon try this blog by an Alaskan 'citizen who is paying attention.' Amongst other things there is this interesting post: Is Palin an Albatross?

schroedingerstabby, if you were born to Sarah Palin, your name would be:

Claw Washout Palin

Waah!

He he he. Looks like that name generator isn't so random after all - it certainly picked up on the cat reference in your name at least. 'Washout' is pretty grim, however, and doesn't lend itself to a late run at President of the US. Oh well.

That is funny. Gondal Girl came out as Hose Hot Rod Palin, very funny....

Mary, Strangle Thicket so spookily describes my hair! How did they know? And I'm a crime writer... (cue the Twilight Zone music)

Mary McCallum said...

Great GG! I wonder if that is 'hose' as in garden or 'Hose' as in the Mexican Jose (pron. Hosay)? I'm guessing the former if your Mum is Sarah P. I wonder what your real name would turn up?

Vanda Symon said...

And if Sarah was Rachael and my mummy, at least if she hollered out Strangle, you come here right now, she'd have double the chance of being ignored.

Vanda, you're right it is goosebumps stuff - that the name generator would know both your hair and your profession and wrap it up so neatly in a typical Palin name (or Palinome...)

ok, real name came out as Jeep Pike Palin....very funny...
