Because the Hybrid names are funny
posted by snowwhitedrifted (SWD/ West Coast Stacey)
Because of the legendary TomKat, Bennifer, and Brangelina, the formula for name combos is mainstream. Not only does this apply to celeb couples, but to actors and their most infamous characters as well. We are all familliar with Robward (Robert Pattinson + Edward Cullen = Robward) and Taycob (Taylor Lautner + Jaccob Black= Taycob), thanks to LTT, and most people in “normal” real life will know exactly who they are, but what about those other supes… Are their hybrid names well known? Apparantly not, since I used the name “Benspian” (Ben Barnes + Caspian = Benspian) on Facebook much to my friend’s chagrin. Sooo, sure some work, like the aforementioned Robward and Taycob, however, some do not.
Kristella (Kristen Stewart + Bella Swan= Kristella). This sounds like a bizarre cat whose owner is just stepping out of her romance novel period (ehrm, throwing stones here… said by the woman whose phone is named “Mac Dubh”).
Micharo (Michael Sheen + Aro (like Bono, no second name needed) = Micharo). Nope, sounds like either a knock off Renaissance painter or Japanese beer.
Kellmett (Kellen Lutz + Emmett Cullen= Kellmett). “Special” muppet?
Petelisle (PFach (I’m not spelling that) + Carlisle Cullen = Petelisle) Sounds like an additive to fireplace logs. “Eh Love, throw some more Petelisle on the fire, will ya?”
Alexric (Alexander Skarsgård + Eric Northman= Alexric). Sounds like either Vampire Diarie’s Alaric’s distant Eastern European cousin with a crossover eating dissorder, or, it’s just lame. No things Eric nor Alex are permitted to be lame. Moving on.
Annookie (Anna Paquin + Sookie Stackhouse= Annookie) Native American Indian Tribe? A new Jersey Shore character?
Jocide (Joe Manganiello + Alcide Herveaux= Jocide). I just picture the blonde dingey waitress from “Mel’s Diner”.
SamSam (Sam Trammell + Sam Merlottes) A musical instrument, like a “tomtom” or a member of one of my friend’s family whose names are: JoeJoe, JayJay, JonJon, and JingJing.
Jendean (Jensen Ackles + Dean Winchester = Jendean). I think of a lard addative, like Crisco. Maybe I am just thinking of Paula Deen’s “stickah buttah” and Jimmy Dean sausage products.
Paultefan (Paul Wesley + Stefan Salvatore = Paultefan). That could be an alternative Rock Band, like “Interpol”, or “Anberlin”. Coversely, upon reversing the name to “Stefanaul” it also sounds band-ish. Or am I just thinking of “Steppenwolf?” Maybe we’ll save that one for when one of Stefan’s hoodies gets pelted by moonstones.
Ninalenathrine (Nina Dobrev + Elena Gilbert + Katherine= Ninalenathrine). Nope, Male enhancement cream or herpes ointment. (*side note- very thankful I chose to google image “ointment” rather than “herpes cream”. Ointment was disturbing enough).
Ok, now I see why they cut the list at Robward.
*note, while searching, “Salvatore Raven”, these three images came up of all these actors looking very, uhhhh, bromantic. I thought I’d share.
