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.

The mention of throttling makes me wonder again if that would actually hurt a Nemean (coming from a non-Nemean) like it did in the Hercules myth. That was asked in the Reader Questions and the only response was an adorably distressed Lorne.
