Still clearing out old comment spam, but close to done.
Most of the time, spambots either enter non-name phrases into the Name box or use pretty ordinary names. But I just noticed a cluster of intriguing ones:
- Conway Hound in the Plain
- Chalmers House of Lords
- Culbert Cool and Brilliant
- Bartholomew Warlike
I Googled a couple of the phrases, and found that they're the meanings of the names, from baby-name kinds of sites.
Which is pretty prosaic after all; the spambots are just taking a first name and tacking on the name's meaning. But I do like the phrase “Culbert Cool and Brilliant”; maybe it's part of the same series as Sarah, Plain and Tall.
(Okay, it turns out that there really is a series, and the other books don't have titles like that. But it's still a good joke, so I'll leave it.)
