What's In a Name?

I couldn't resist this meme, from PK (aka Purple):

1. YOUR ROCK STAR NAME (first pet, current car): Duke Intrepid

2. YOUR GANGSTA NAME (fave ice cream flavor, favorite type of shoe): Chocolate L.L. Bean Clog. Or L.L. Kool Bean for short.

3. YOUR NATIVE AMERICAN NAME (favorite color, favorite animal): Purple Dog. Or Red Dog. (It depends on the day.)

4. YOUR SOAP OPERA NAME (middle name, city where you were born): Marie Gladwin.

5. YOUR STAR WARS NAME (the first three letters of your last name, first two of your first name): Pol-el.

6. SUPERHERO NAME (2nd favorite color, favorite drink): Yellow Coffee. (Um...not so much. How about "The" followed by your 2nd favorite color, followed by your favorite pastime? "The Yellow Procrastinator." Holy Reality Check, Batman, I think we have a winner.

7. NASCAR NAME (the first names of your grandfathers): Edmund Alfred? Alfred Edmund? That sounds less NASCAR and more...oh, I don't know...PBS host. (And neither grandpa was either a NASCAR or PBS kind of fellow...more beer-and-herring kind of guys.)

8. STRIPPER NAME ( the name of your favorite perfume/cologne/scent, favorite candy): Cool Water Dark Chocolate. Or Sandalwood Snickers. Again, it depends on the day.

9. TV WEATHER ANCHOR NAME (your fifth grade teacher’s last name, a major city that starts with the same letter): Smith San Francisco.

10. SPY NAME (your favorite season/holiday, flower): Christmas Orchid.

11. CARTOON NAME (favorite fruit, article of clothing you’re wearing right now): Melon Corduroy.

12. HIPPIE NAME (What you ate for breakfast, your favorite tree): Grape-Nuts Elm. (That sounds better than Yogurt Elm...something else I had for breakfast. Although Flaxseed Elm -- what else I ate for breakfast -- has a crunchy-granola ring to it.)

I don't even remember enough historical facts about my life to answer most of these! And for the rest... Well, my answers are going to end up being a little ridiculous...

Hippie name: Count Chocula Sequoia?
Spy Name: Halloween Bird of Paradise?
Superhero name: The Purple Chocolate Milk?
Native American name: Black Lemur? (or if we wanted to go North American, I guess Black Buffalo would work)
Rock Star name: Rodeo Non-Applicable?

Heh... At least my Cartoon name works: Pinapple Pyjammas.

I can't get past my Rock Star name, which would be Creampuff Sedona. That's just sad.

P.S. an after-thought said...

My best one was Trixie Focus, the Rock Star. I guess I rock.

Anyway I played two memes in a row and didn't tag anybody.
