Your Name Here

The rather amusing and somewhat Monty Pythonesque The Weekly offers us the true origins of your name. I ran mine, or rather the site’s name, and here’s what I came up with:


Literal meaning

“Maker of Quaker fakers.”

Famously confined to the Scottish Highlands, then to prison, then to bed around the time when the Vikings were really beginning to wonder if it was all worth it, the name Shatnerian was originally used precisely to refer to Belgians over 5″11′, before it escaped to France with the help of sympathisers.

Famous Shatnerians

2. Shatnerian Happenstance-Grating, PhD, who could never shake an early association with several of the more violent gypsy curses;
3. Shatnerian Lonfial, of the generation which fondly remembers the indestructible tortoise;
4. Shatnerian de Tidecatcher-Sponetote, proponent of the world’s seventh highest-rated episode of Mr Pastry;
5. Shatnerian Dufallily, BA, DSO and Bar, director of the new Bond movie, FIRE AND MUD; ghost-writer of Anita Ekberg’s astonishingly violent autobiography, IS THAT ME? NO, THIS IS ME;
6. Shatnerian Nightdodge, exposed in the press as having swapped a child for demanding money with menaces;
7. Shatnerian Smmith, indifferent to more types of bacterial infection than any twenty-seven people can name; first holder of the office of Police-constable;
