What would your name be if you were the kind of person who would be a National Public Radio correspondent? You don't hear any Mike Wilsons or Heather Browns on that network. If you want to speak in the same rarefied air as Korva Coleman or Renita Jablonski, you need a name that combines exotica and whimsy. And Lianablog has found the NPR name formula. Your first name is your real first name with your middle initial inserted into it wherever you choose. Your last name is the smallest town you've ever visited in a foreign country. My wife, for instance, is Nicolle Guanabo. Dave would be Deave Zilina. And just look at the byline above - my life's already getting more interesting. How about you?

Really? I just feel bad. Jaspon Fking (the real word).

Yes I've actually been to the town of Fking, Austria, and it has about 30 or 40 houses in it total.

I don't need a more interesting name.

My real life last name is pronounced (but not written): Cool chick.

I'm just waiting for NPR to call...

What if the smallest town I've ever been to is actually the same as my last name? I ask because this is true for me.

How about "America-Hating Liberal Whiner"? That covers most of the NPR correspondents, except for that guy named "Euro-Trash Green Eco-meat popsicle" and what's-her-face, "Iraqi-Sympathizing Pommy Brit". NPR = NCR, National Communist Radio. It's THE station for liberals who don't think they're liberal. And by the way my name is GodBlessRonaldReaganAndTheGOP Q. BurnInHellObamaLibs.

If that isn't good enough for NPR, it'd probably do for the BBC.

Say it like Mel-heesa, just to give it the overpronounced Hispanic name treatment it would certainly receive on NPR.
