Not going to scroll through a thread I necromancied to check if the name game has already produced this result.

Die and Tot!
(a mixture of English and German, meaning "die and death")

FriedAngel, you are right, "Die" is a German word too. But wouldn't have fitted the context that jumped into my mind when I saw DeadAnode's user name.

@all: This post is not meant to take away anyone's turn, and is just meant as a reply to AngryFish's comments.

Damn, I am bad with names. This game will surely improve this. Or not...

That's not where my name comes from, DragLowDyke. It's an abbreviation of the Dutch word "Krullebol", naming someone with curled hair on his head...

You must be old then since you don't use the >1995 spelling of 'Krullenbol' :).

Yes, I am, Angelfail. In 1995 I finished school and left for university, which I visited in Germany.
But I am German, and in German Krulle is a better pronouncable abbreviation of Krulle(n)bol than Krullen would be.

So, is it "Pannekoeken" or "Pannenkoeken" for you?
I always use only one pan for pancakes. It's only very seldom (kids birthday parties) that I think about making panscakes.
(Although "pan[BE]" would translate to "pan[NL]", and not to "panne[NL]" anyway - this is an artifact in Dutch from combining the two words into one word. In German you have a similar change of the core words to combine them (by omitting letters, not by adding as the Dutch do: "Pfannkuchen", it's never "Pfannenkuchen")

Edit: yeah, yeah, I am that German that I capitalised words without thinking.... "Pannekoeken"....
