Name Game '06 Results!

A little over two weeks ago, I sent out a call to participate in planetdan's Name Game '06. I was expecting maybe twenty responses, but I got almost 200. So it took me a while to compile the data, and now, finally, the time has come to share my groundbreaking findings:

The official winner of the planetdan Name Game '06 was, by far, Ellen DeGeneres. But that is only the beginning. You won't believe the results!


Thanks to everyone who participated. It was much appreciated. And interesting. To say the least. But don't worry, I removed all personal names.

I can't believe ten people said Dawn (of the Dead).
And NOBODY went with Dawn (-a Martin Graduates)

Different Spellings of DeGeneres
You forgot "DeGeberes" - which is what you called her in your list of The Top 10 in First Name Ownership...

Folks, it's Thomas the TANK ENGINE, not Thomas the Train. Sheesh. You can tell that most of Dan's readers have never been a parent.

Ethan Allen is a 'non-human'? Dan, I suggest you repeat 7th grade history. Ethan Allen is/was as real as Sam Adams.

Oops, I fixed my stupid mistakes. And yes, I'm aware Ethan Allen was a real person, but a fair number of participants actuall wrote "The Furniture Store" next to their entry, so I assumed that's what they were referring to.

ACK! that has to be the worst pic of Melanie Griffith ever!!!

That Ken doll looks pretty gay.

I agree with Karyn...I think my picture should be up there instead of Stacy Keach...
plus I am hoping I was not the "fat girl from grade school" someone refered to...
I am so self absorbed...I ran right to the stacy list to see if I was mentioned...
I know this was alot of work but my heart skipped a beat when I saw you had it up...I love stuff like this so the countless hours of work that went into my morning time entertainment was very much appreciated...

I will be sure to tell Richard you miss him Tonya...

I love that all my names and comments are on the odd list... that guy allen really was an asshole.

Ben Dover... still funny.

I think Samuel L. Jackson is flipping us off in that pic?

Dan - why are you not the head of some fantastic creative department? Or writing hilarious memoir books (a la Sedaris)? Or penning some hilarious sitcom?

Granted, I never want you to stop this blog, but damn it. Get your talented ass out there!

I want someone with the screen name stacyfan...really bad

Richard Dawkins (evolutionary biologist)
I am such a freaking nerd.
Glad you liked it.

I have no idea who the fuck some of these people are.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 8:42 PM  

Those pics of Maria Shriver & Melanie Griffith creep me OUT! Did you pick 'em on purpose?!

And yeppers, I do indeed know who Ashley Bartlett Bacon is ... she's the bitchy wannabe fiancee to Peter Gallagher's character in 'While You Were Sleeping' (great little movie!). :-)

By Anonymous Riograce, at 10:57 PM  

I'm sure if you had "Dan" instead of "Daniel" you would've gotten a lot more votes. And I hope you're not a "one-balled bastard". Yup, I'm awesomely retarded as well...

By Anonymous Krista, at 3:58 PM  

I just compared my answers to the masses, and was surprised that I only had about five or six of the top picks for the names. Most of the time I either got the second one or something else completely random. It was actually pretty embarrasing to look over my answers...I can't believe David Schwimmer was the first David to come to mind. I don't even watch Friends... And for some reason I thought of Charles de Gaulle (the airport, not the person) for Charles. My mind makes no sense.

My favourite answer is Sue Johannsen - has a call-in sex show out of Canada!

I also knew who Ashley Bartlett Bacon was. That movie cracks me up every time. Best part? Between scenes, after S. Bullock stays the night at the Callaghan house.

The paperboy throws a newspaper and in so doing crashes his bike.

I wait for it every time. :D

My brain's retarded. I was having too much a Gilmore Girls night when I did that.

I am suprised of how many Luke Danes, Dawn Summers, and Pam Beeslys there were. That's cool.

And yay, I didn't put Ashley Simpson! My mind did something not-stupid for a change!

I'm not the one who posted it, but Chris O'Donnell IS hot, and I too am glad that he's on Gray's now. (There, I said it.)

And David Sutcliffe on GG is fun to look at too.

By Blogger Dennis!, at 3:42 PM  

I can only assume you meant "Richard" when you listed a catagory as "Gere" sheesh!
