Told son yesterday I had favoured Louis as his second name. He was
mortified 😊
“It’s a poof’s name!” He exclaimed somewhat aggressively. “Yebut, I
wanted three syllables and not too long. However, I did think you risked
being called Louise.” After he calmed down, he said: “Well nobody knows
anyone’s middle name”. Said son went to Sandhurst and I am SO glad we
didn’t settle on Louis.

At university I knew a chap called Louis Pong.

Told son yesterday I had favoured Louis as his second name. He was
mortified ?

Would I be right in guessing he was an oriental gentleman? We had some
of those at school, and they usually adopted an English name, I think
partly for _our_ convenience: but the names they chose tended to be
_slightly_ old-fashioned, such as Arthur.

Reflex response (I did that for O level): act II scene 2. Comes straight
after (arguably is part of) the most famous quote (the one where most
people misunderstand the third word).

Erm . . . according to my copy Act II Sc 2 is set in Friar Laurence's
cell. The previous scene contains the lines "What's in a name! that
which we call a rose/ By any other name would smell as sweet;"

What is the third word to which you refer?

You'd guess right. And that line would have made much more sense (to the

his forename.

And for non Shakespeare students, its even funnier if you are aware that,
back then the bit in front of stage was filled with straw. The audience*
would use this for peeing and was called “the roses”. I suppose the Rose
Theatre may have been particularly pongy! He loved a pun did our Will.

*I guess this only applied to the chaps; my education didn’t cover the
female needs. Others may know more.

An interesting question. I don’t know if women did squat in Will’s day. If
they didn’t wear knickers an A frame stance might have sufficed?

At university I knew a chap called Louis Pong.
Obviously, I can see the humour but it also seems to me to have a very
elegant cadence to it.  I think it's rather a nice name.
So did he. He was of course Chinese and had chosen Louis - or maybe his
family had, I can't remember. He was a sweet guy and very good at table
tennis.
He not only "ponged" but he "pinged" well too <g>
Well batted!
He not only wiffed but also waffed?
