So we were getting into the historical stuff (as well as the mullets and the magnificent special effects), and so I googled Patsington's surname and the Norman-heavy part of the country his dad comes from to see if there were any Guy [Patsington's-surname]s knocking about the place back in the 12th century. Sadly, there were no Guys, but instead we found that Patsington's (possible) forebears all had names straight out of Cold Comfort Farm! Yes, there was an Odo [Patsington's-surname], and - even better - there was a Fulk [Patsington's-surname]. And best of all, Fulk had a son called Patrick, who was known as Patrick Fitzfulk [Patsington's-surname]. And if only I could give away Patsington's surname in public, I'd say how they all spelled it, because there was one spelling so magnificent that I wish he'd start spelling his name like that now, because it's very amusing. Anyway, Patsington is delighted by this, and has announced that we must call our firstborn Odo. Or possibly Fulk. I said, what about Urk? Or Rennet? And he said that the names of the Starkadders couldn't compete with the names of the [Patsington's-surname]s, and I think he's right.
*By production, I do not mean the special effects, which consisted of slow-motion accompanied by clanging synth sounds.
