Vyrgynne St. Sebastienne!
I'll take Helpless Virgins with Noble Blood and Way Too Many Consonants for $300, Alex!
I swear to you I could not make this shit up. I'm not even going to tell you the author or the name of the book because I'm so embarrassed on her behalf. I have no idea if the book is any good or not because when I saw this name on the back cover blurb -- after I fought down the nausea and hysterics -- I put it back on the shelf. Actually, I hid it under several other books on the shelf. If I'd been thinking clearly, I would have purchased it, then burned it despite all the hateful issues I have about burning books. This is The Name That Never Should Have Been.
After that, I swear I'll never make fun of another weirdly shortened name I see anywhere. I promise.
Maybe her heroes name was Bane.
(P.S. Can somebody tell me how to write the possessive of hero?)
LOL--hero's...now, can you tell me the plural of ottoman? OttoMEN or ottomans? Ottomi?
That is seriously a freakin horrid name.
What were they thinking?
If you had one of those 'shocked' smilies or 'wtf' smilies, I'd used a row of them right here. lol
LOL Can you tell us the publisher of the book so that we know to stay far far far away?
I had a cat named Vyrgynne St. Sebastienne once...
And "ottomans". (It doesn't have the same etymology as "man".)
And that name really bites.
Was she a vyrgynne? And wasn't it St. Sebastian? Or St. Sebastien? Wouldn't it be Ste. Sebastienne if there were a female version? It's just too, too wrong.
Actually, I rather wondered if maybe she shouldn't change her name after the boinking. Maybe something like Notte Ay Vyrgynne Annyemmore St. Sebastienne.
And thanks, Julie. I knew I hadn't gotten it right. You're also right about the Ste. Sebastienne. The whole thing is a travesty of wrongness.
>>Notte Ay Vyrgynne Annyemmore St. Sebastienne.
*snicker* let this be a lesson to you girls. Lay OFF the crack pipe when writing.
Whoa! That's a mouthful! *lol* But I've got a worst one, ready?
Try saying that without stopping for air!
Can you say tongue tied? I wonder if the editor who allowed her to keep the name forgot their spectacles that day.. we shouldn't be mean, at least she's published.. that more than I can say for me. :)
Please, please tell me this was not in a published novel ... please ...
