'Thou shalt know thy Name Acronym...'
Probably not an extract from a certain well-known book.
The Name Acronym Generator
As you probably already know, ACRONYM stands for 'Abbreviated Coded Rendition Of Name Yielding Meaning'... But, do you know what's your username stands for?
Like for the usual and previous 'What's in a Name? articles, we are featuring one of the many name generators that can be found on the Net... Though this one doesn't generate names but name acronyms instead.
Apart from that slight difference, it's practically the same thing... or, if you prefer, it's a sort of Cyborg Name Generator without the Cyborg references.
Confused? Don't be anymore... Click on this link and everything will
Oh and there are a few other tests and stuff there as well as a bonus.
My Name Acronym
According to the Generator, I am all that at the same time:
'Luscious Orderly Unreal Proud Desperate Amorous Rounded Graceful
Exciting Nerdy Temperamental'
Not too sure about D and N but rather spot on for the others I’ll very humbly
Others' Name Acronyms
Interested to know what results the crème de la crème on h2g2 would get with those
generators, I conscientiously carried on the way I've always done in the previous articles.
The results for the Post Team are as follows...
'Sloppy Hardworking Accurate Zany Zany Philosophical Radical Magical
Greebo T Cat:
'Good Radical Entertaining Excellent Brainy Outrageous Tender Cranky Amazing
'Ambivalent Warm Intelligent X-BoxHueg'
'Temperamental Influential Technological Arty Neglected Innocent
'Warm Orderly Twisted Charismatic Handsome Intelligent
The ones for the Italics are…
'Neglected Astounding Terrific Appealing Loving Insane
'Jealous Inspirational Mushy Light Yucky Noisy Noisy'
'Juicy Irresistible Magical Strong Tempting Easy Rich'
'Painful Amazing Unforgettable Legendary Lucky Yucky'
'Boisterous Elitist Technological Hot'
Back by popular demand (well, Quizzical's demand anyway...), the usual political trio gets the
'Trustworthy Overwhelming Normal Yummy Brainy Little Altruistic Ideal
George W Bush:
'Glamorous Earthy Orderly Raw Gentle Enjoyable Worldly Boisterous Unnatural Spunky
'Juicy Adventurous Crazy Quiet Useful Emotional Spunky Cuddly Humorous Important
Rounded Accurate Confused'
The jury will probably be out for quite a long time regarding those political leaders' results
The Name-Calling Acronym Generator
It does what it says on the tin... You type a name (but not if it's longer than seven letters though)
and you get a relatively insulting acronym.
The result I got for LOUP is:
'Limp Oddity, Upbringer of Philanthropy'
Not too bad I suppose...
So, if you want to have a go at this one, the link to click on is here.
The Acronym Test
It's so bad that this link warrants a code red emergency disclaimer regarding myself/The
Post/h2g2/the BBC and anyone else (including the person who programmed it probably) not being
responsible whatsoever for whatever results you will get if you choose to take that test...
In short: you've been warned... ok?
The Acronym Translator
If all those BRBs, AFAIKs, IMHOs, ASAPs or even ASLs confuse you when you come across them,
have no fear... a solution is at end.
You can now install a nifty gizmo, if you use Internet Explorer and Windows that is, which will
translate all those darn landlubbin'2 acronyms for you
when you highlight them.
It's free and can be found
The Acronym Related Musical Moment
There is at least one song with an acronym in its title that became famous...
Listen to this link and you will know
which one I mean.
Tell Us About It
You didn't think that a slight change in the title and in the kind of generator being featured this
week would mean no feedback from you, did you?
You know the drill by now, so don't be shy and do please let us know your results... Ok?
Thanks in advance and, of course, TTFN...
