name fatigue

I love the idea of using place names as character names though, I'm definitely going to be stealing that idea. Next WiP is totally going to feature Nempnett Thrubwell and Queen Camel.
Nempnett Thrubwell is totally resonant of the Wurzels to me and Queen Camel reminds me of being in the church choir in my teens. The vicar had to read the banns for a couple and I don't think he'd read them in advance, he had the piece of paper in his hand and was reading out "Miss Smith a spinster of this parish, and Mr Jones of the parish of <choke> Queen Camel" and the next Sunday he knew it was coming but that made it worse for him. He didn't actually giggle in the pulpit but he was a bit strained.

I used to find the scam emails useful - they had the strangest names as the sender. I'm not getting any these days. Must have done something right.
