Would you name your child after Guybrush
 
When ye grow would ye name yer child after Guybrush Threepwood, mighty pirate

Bushmeister 09-16-2003 03:47 PM

In a word ... no.

ptdc 09-16-2003 04:11 PM

What about Bobbin? ;)

Gabez 09-16-2003 04:34 PM

Dear God, no.

Reminds me of a comic strip I read once about naming children Sam & Max though.

scabb 09-16-2003 05:16 PM

Heh, If you run a google image search for "Sam & Max", you should find a few pictures of cats wrestling. A word of warning, though - when investigating Sam and Max pictures on google, keep SafeSearch switched "on".

TyraaRane 09-17-2003 12:49 AM

Look...I may be a fangirl, but I have my limits. :p

(In other words, no.)

MrManager 09-17-2003 01:28 AM

Maybe if I wanted the kid to be beaten up on a daily basis... ::

Ernil 09-17-2003 02:38 AM

I plan on calling my first dog "Guybrush." It's going to be a Bloodhound.

Not a kid.















Or maybe...

Mentat88 09-17-2003 06:16 AM

no way!

My cat's called Manny tho

Joshi 09-17-2003 07:36 AM

No, although Guy Wood sounds promising.

I went to the trouble of switching it off, and I'm totally disappointed with the results. Damn you.

ptdc 09-17-2003 04:16 PM

Me too, but are you sure those cats are wrestling?

Obviously didn't dig deep enough, then ;

Orca Wail 09-18-2003 11:06 PM

maybe naming him Guybrush will give him "charater"
Did anyone ever hear the song "A Boy Named Sue"?

(from the part where Sue finds his estranged father in a bar)

"MY NAME IS SUE!!!!
HOW DO YOU DO?!
NOW YOU GONNA DIE!"

Guybrush91789 09-26-2003 03:58 AM

yeah some people actually voted Aye

Anomonous Guy 09-27-2003 03:21 PM

hehe then he wud be called guybrush Greenwood
almost the same name :D

Herman Toothdecay 09-27-2003 05:47 PM

Maybe a middle name, so maybe name a son "Dorkus Guybrush Pimplemeister". Nothing to be ashamed of in a middle name, right :p ?

Note: my last name isn't Pimplemeister lol

ptdc 09-27-2003 10:59 PM

All middle names are a source of embarrasment even if they're perfectly normal.

Ernil 09-28-2003 02:44 AM

Perfectly normal? HA. Not mine. It's surely to be ashamed of.










Ok...it's John. That's not TERRIBLEY bad.

Krazy 09-28-2003 11:05 AM

Oh yeah sure and lets name our daughters Elaine :rolleyes:

Well, you've got to admit, that's a little saner than naming a son Guybrush. And you could always lie and say that it has nothing to do with Monkey Island, because Elaine is actually a normal name and all.

And yeah, middle names are always embarrassing, particuarly mine. Patricia, eeesh, that's not only embarrassing it's stupid. And I'm sure that Guybrush is regularly embarrassed by the whole "Ulysses" thing, too.

Das Mole 09-28-2003 10:25 PM

i wouldn't name my kid guybrush...especially if it was a girl...

Quote:

well, i wouldn't have a problem with that...because it would remind me of elaine from seinfeld :)

---------------------
elaine: (to saleswoman in expensive store) "uhh...excuse me...i was wondering where you got that mannequin in your window?"

saleswoman: (sounds snotty and has a very european accent, like norwegian or swedish or something) "i don't know."

elaine: "what do you mean you don't know?"

saleswoman: "i don't know."

elaine: "well can't you find out?"

saleswoman: "why do you care?"

elaine: "well, isn't it obvious? this mannequin looks exactly like me!"

saleswoman: "oh please. that mannequin is wearing a twelve-hundred dollar gaultier dress."

elaine: "oh. so what, are you saying i'm not good enough for your cheap little dress? listen...natasha... i wouldn't be caught dead wearing your crummy little euro-trash!"

that "listen...natasha..." part always cracks me up. :rofl:

i mean, you probably have to watch the episode to get it, but it's hilarious if you've seen it.

AshleyJo 10-03-2003 01:24 AM

... My middle name is Natasha. Er, one of my middle names. I have a lot of them.

So's mine. In a very...Johnish way...

Bushmeister 10-03-2003 05:59 PM

Middle names aren't all bad, mine is Frederick, and I so happen to be quite proud of it.

Fred 10-03-2003 07:51 PM

As you should be Bushmeister. All the best people are called it.


As for naming my son Guybrush...

...

Do I have to dignify that with a response?

zesja 10-05-2003 11:26 AM

Nope sorry wouldnt do it, maybee ok for a pet animal but not a person.:confused:

naming your son Guybrush and your daughter Elaine is asking for some serious incest-related turbulence....

Get tha rifle Cleytus, we's is a-movin' ta Texas!

ptdc 10-05-2003 05:07 PM

I think Bobbin would work better than guybrush...

uh... NO haha

ptdc 10-06-2003 07:03 AM

Well I'd name a child Bobbin. ;) And that's why I'm never going to have any children. Well... not the only reason ;)

Glottis512 10-11-2003 08:45 PM

For every year a child was named 'Bobbin' he would need 10 years in therapy. If a kid was called Guybrush he would get beat up. Its actually a good name, but kids these days don't play these old classics.:eek:

Yufster 10-12-2003 12:09 AM

What sort of moron would call a child GUYBRUSH??

I'm gonna call my kid "Squall Leonhart".

Or maybe "Cloud Strife".

No, wait. I have a better idea. Ima call it... "Timothy Schafer" or "Bill Gates". Only probably with Bill Gates, is that it might accidently find that love song I wrote, and get the wrong idea. Eeughchkk.

No, seriously. I'm not gonna have any kids. It wouldn't be fair on humankind in general.

ptdc 10-12-2003 12:53 AM

I think it would be far kinder on humanity and the world if everybody stopped having children, but that's another story... an amazingly off topic story.

I think some better names would be Edmund for a boy or Bernard for a girl ;)

Guybrush91789 10-12-2003 05:22 AM

Wouldn't you have legal trouble if you named someone Guybrush.

Didn't they trademark that name

Bushmeister 10-12-2003 07:43 AM

lol, well its not like anyone put a (tm) on "Guybrush" on a birth certificate. But I wouldn't be shocked if you had LucasArts lawyers crashing down the doors of a one-year old baby's house to tell it that it was going to be sued.

Glottis512 10-12-2003 09:38 AM

Well, you never know. Lawyers are unscrupulous.
They'd probably get him tried as an adult.

Yufster 10-12-2003 10:06 AM

Oh my goodness, that would be hilarious. It's almost worthy of a game of its own. Guybrush gets sued because his name is copyright. Oh my god, it's like passing the bad luck down the generations. Ha ha ha. Ha ha ha! I really like that Idea. It's worthy of a MAGs game.

Glottis512 10-12-2003 10:22 AM

Damn Straight!
"No court in the world gonna convict a BABY...........................Maybe Texas."

sfy 06-18-2011 03:41 AM

Good news everyone! I've just named my son Guybrush! Not as his spoken name though, but as middle name. He's going to be a mighty pirate!
