Dear God, no.

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

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".

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

Not a kid.

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

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

Note: my last name isn't Pimplemeister lol

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

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.

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.

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

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?

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.

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.

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

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

Didn't they trademark that name

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.

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.
