Stupid stuff

Many moons ago I asked you, my friends, for help with Sims families. The time has come to ask again.

I have a neighborhood where all of the Sims are inspired by friends. Not that mean-spirited "this is my college roommate living in this trailer with 12 kids" way, but based on their/your interests, jobs etc. For example, I have 2 dear friends who are obsessed with Star Wars. In the neighborhood they are both in the Lars family and one of them has kids named after X-Men and the other has kids named after Simpsons characters. Another dear friend is a lighting designer so his family is named Strand. I have yet ANOTHER dear friend who loves singing and being wenchy - I know what her kids will be named, but can't think of a good surname...

So....

What should I name your family and why? What should the names of your kids be?

Ok.

Mine should be the Van Pelt family.

And that should be for resons that are obvious to you--please remember my birthday cake of two years ago.

The parents should be Patricia and Sherman, and the daughter should be a little red-haired girl named Dahlia. Dahlia, of course, wants to be a kitty when she grows up.

But what shall Dahlia want to name her children when she grows up?

She's a Mia Farrow type. Try names like Ralph and Moonbeam and Zinnia.

You cannot possibly be talking about me?! *impish grin*

Kirish (cross between Korean & Irish :-D)

Tarte

Twollop


(Oh the awful puns you could use if you did Tarte as the last name... kids named Lemon and Raspberry come to mind...)

*giggle* and here I'd been trying to think of a fine Irish singer's name for your family...something that would work with kids named Ann and Jack...

I'm terrible with naming my Sims... they always get awful puns for names.

Such as my "test" family when I was trying out Sims2.
Surname: Testacasey (test case)
Father: Tar (rat)
Mother: Ginea (guinea pig)
Son: Tarbal (lab rat)
Daughter: NAT (no Animal testing)

*grin* I do that on occasion.

If you ever want to do a Sims crossover, you can use the Bracewell name :)

And I just realized I edited out the comment in my original post that explains that..

that family I made for myself has the surname Bracwell and currently the 2 kids are Sylvia and Maria (Maria is in college and dating Logan Lars)

Oh... for that.. Make em' decedents of Turlough O'Carolan (1670-1738) One of the finest Harpers of Ireland.

Oh, if you are going to name me something, name me Christy Moore. I just figred that Jack Moore would be an unfortunate name.

For a taste of Christy's work (if you don't already know it), http://tinyurl.com/9zjm6

I'm amused-- I did my final paper in my History of Ireland class in college on Turlough O'Carrolan

I was SO hoping you'd ask about this! Does this mean I get to be a family?

If so, I want to be a Hogwarts ho! I mean, siriusly. Gee my surname! My top three would be Weasley, Lupin or Malfoy. I guess if I had to choose it would be Malfoy. For kids, whatever. I can't really think of any either except for Draco.

It means you get to be a family! I like to mix and match usually - one thing for the surname and one for the kids if you have another fun thing for me to use....

The Wallin family. Three guys, a girl, and a kid. Should be one blonde guy, a hot (butch) girl and two cool guys, one of whom is a tech-geek. Kid should definately be a girl (and potentially annoying).

No pets in Sims 2 yet :( What are your suggestions for the kids' names?

anything but Anonymous.

Greg, Jessie, Stephen, Jason (the geek), and little Jenn.

If you do my request, please share some screen-caps.

Also, I'd DIE if you could manage an anime-based family! Better if they were all anime in appearance!

Well...one of my friends is a Ranma-geek - so if you want to give me some Anime names for the Wallin family kids......

ARGH! The Sims are *such* an addiction.

I finally managed to kick the habit, but then they released Sims 2 for Mac. I'm so glad I'm broke and can't afford to buy it...yet.
