Your NPR Name, Like Your Drag Queen Name Only Unpronounceable

Linda Holmes on NPR’s MonkeySee blog writes:

In a roundabout way (by which I mean via Peter Sagal‘s Twitter feed), I discovered this entirely user-created and absolutely unofficial time-killer in which you discover “Your NPR name.”

The rules: Take the first letter of your middle name and insert it anywhere you’d like in your first name. And then your last name is the smallest foreign town you’ve ever visited. Presto: You too can compete with Korva Coleman, Lakshmi Singh and Mandalit del Barco.

My NPR name? Alinda Castelldefels, which you must admit is awesome. I am absolutely using that next time they let me on the radio.

This fishie’s NPR name? Tinam Ollantaytambo…all the consonants are silent, by the way.

This game – created by Liana Maeby – her site can be found here. Her NPR name? Liarna Kassel.
