Handshakes 21: Merry and Pippen

10 Comments

Merry and Pippin! I nearly squealed in delight!


There are quite a group of people born around the 60’s/70’s with the name Merry and Pippin. Very popular among hippies. In 10 years time we’ll probably have a bunch of “Arthas”‘s and “Kane”‘s.


Now there’s a frightening thought! Then again, if I ever have kids I’m planning on mining Arthurian legend and other mythological sources for names, so I guess I can’t point too many fingers.


There’s a bunch of “Bellas” and “Edwards” being born. Not Isabella but Bella. Terrifying that they’re breeding, but at least the kids have somewhat normal names so they won’t be mocked in school as much.


Well, the whole thing is, for Jon’s middle name to be from LOTR, ‘Merry’ is just the shortened version from Meriadoc. I actually kinda like that name…
