Nifty Pottermore Names

Post  Potteraholic on Mon Aug 08, 2011 2:27 pm

I got the idea for this game with all the recent excitement around early registration for JKR's Pottermore site, while I was working on the chart of all our Pottermore usernames. Some folks liked the choices of names they were given to select their username from, and some thought their choices were rather disappointing. So, I thought it might be fun to come up with our own ideas for Pottermore usernames. The names seem to consist of 2 words, with no space in between, with each word capitalized, followed by a number. For instance, GallopingGargoyle11.

But to make this a game, and not just a random list of names we like, how about we start each new name with the final letter of the previous name? So, for example, if the 1st name was MoonlightStone11, the following poster would have to start with an 'E'.

- MoonlightStone11 =>(E)

- EmeraldCharm220 =>(M)

- MysteriousMarauder7 =>(R) etc.

In the beginning, just until folks get the hang of things, it might help if folks post the letter the next name should start with. This game may not last that long, or it may last a while. We'll see.




Okay... here we go with the first name:

CharmChaser67 =>(R)

How's that? I have a feeling that there will be a LOT of R names.

RapierRedhead2

Sorry, I missed the suggestion that we use the previous name as a start for our name. Thanks for the polite hint.

(Pompous Percy Voice On) We look to our prefects to set a good example in these situations (Off Percy Voice).

A slight revision from, "...use the previous name as a start for our name." In this game, we use the last letter of the previous name to start the next name. And we are helpfully including this letter in parentheses next to the name, until folks get the hang of this little quirk.

So... let's see, moving on from RenegadeGiant13 (T), we'll pick up with RapierRedhead2 (D) to...

DynamicCleansweep40 (P)

I dunno what is inspiring everyone else's numbers, but I'm using family members' birthdates and ages at the moment. 'Twill be friends when those run out.
