Asterix names

#1
When I was but a whippersnapper wannabe wordsmith, someone in my family (not me, honest guv) decided that we should give each other derogatory Asterix names. Thus my argumentative big sister became Dogmatix, my younger drama queen sister became Histrionix, etc etc. (They never did come up with a satisfactory riposte for me, apart from a weak pun on my name, Phallix.) Our dear old Mum was not only an absolute delight, but a fabulous artist and champion bugler, so we bent the rules a bit and she ended up with the moniker ‘Fartifax’.

The Gallic muse has recently been beating me about both lugholes with white-flag sticks for some reason, so I thought I’d open it to the floor.
If you’re feeling witty, have a go. No major rules, just try to stick to the –ix ending and make it a good one that connotes something of the person’s major habits or characteristics e.g. Bush = Catastrophix, Obama = Charismatix, Broon might go with Duffoptix and Clarkson might = Scalectrix.

To start the ball rolling, suggestions for a couple of Arrsers: (collectively known as a Bunchofprix :D )

Cernunnos – Priapix
Smartascarrots – Cleverdix
Josey_Wales – Outforsix
Jarrod248 – Chasesdix
Flashy – Stalkedbychix
MDN/SMB – Sadistix/Justforkix
Sven – Getsonwix
OfaH - Floppydix
Blue_Sophist – Dentafix (sorry, Blue!)
K13eod – Prosthetix
Legs - Leftwithnix

You get the picture.

Don't forget, however, that names in the Asterix books depended on their country of origin.

Nearly all the male Gaulish characters' names end in -ix and most Gaulish women's names end in "a". Roman names end with -us, Normans use -af, Vikings use "-ssen", Egyptians use -is, Greeks use -es or -os, Britons use -ax or -os, Goths use -ric.

What was wrong with "Grand Prix" :D

Now, I've had problems with you "soldiers" understanding the more "sophisticated" humour so, please, don't write your outrage missives until you have thought carefully about the consequences...

:D

Avionix... I like it.. :clap:

So I'm really Parachutrix Avionix.

If I was a tad kinky and female I could have been a Parachutrix Avionix Dominatrix.

If I was a bit of a walt and was really an engineer I should really be Parachutrix Avionix Mechanix.

If I was a re-enactor I'd be Parachutrix Avionix Re-enactrix.

How much more triple x do you need?

"chalice", I don't know about the rest, but you've certainly intimidated me !

How do you expect anyone to follow that excellent collection ?!

To refer to another thread on these boards:

Pathetix = "Baron" James Shortt
