Some more of those Crush characters…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s heraldic term is Lord Lyon King of Arms – the chief herald in Scotland. (L L K of A)

Oh good! Veronica Crush, writer from the glory days of the Hull Surrealist League, now living in New York with tall tree surgeon and heir to a multimillion dollar fortune, Monty Tick, has sent us some more of her spare character names. She says she comes up with them daily and has far more of these imaginary people kicking around the place that she’d ever use in her ‘stories’. If you are a budding writer and you get stuck deciding what names you should give to the people who might inhabit your tales – do feel free to dip in here and grab a couple:

Myra Ampule
Tamsin Huxty-Figs
Brigadier Gordon Flooter DSO
Dr Pansy Udders
Emily Millie Limmy
Johnnie Manifesto
Pippa Whellan-Trooly
Andre Gonad
Dame Daphne Bleem RA
Big Betty Phwarr
Sir Rex Kupple OBE
Arizona Dranes
Linda Lyn Linderlin
Lord Bibbins of Bobbins
Margaret String-Dixie
Robin Asdic-Pings
‘Dangerous’ Otto Van Quelm
Lady Abigail Snale
Mad Harry Hairdoo

As usual, Veronica has sneakily included a real person’s name in the list.
See if you can guess which one it is.

  1. Lord Bibbins of Bobbins sounds like he should be real, or maybe Big Betty Phwaar? And that Scottish lad, Lord Lyon King Of Arms, well I have never heard of him! One of those “jobs for the Boys” malarkey I shouldn’t wonder! 🙂
