Gname That Gnome #3


This lady gnome has terrible eyesight.

Gname that Gnome!

Yesterday's sleepy gnome was named, "Gottfried," by Anonymous (possibly Katharine.) Detail (this is a fun new addition) goes to Jack for "Drank too much Fanta."

Yes, that was me!

Now, about that female gnome...Olga, Bluma, or Svetlana.

Hildegarde!

Jesse thought Brunhilda immediately...then I thought her nickname could be Hildy :)

Winifred.

Gertrude. Going trick our treating.

Q said...

She's Annie, and she clearly likes to knit.

Lyddie
In addition to winning the baked mushroom competition every year except one, Lyddie is known for her great eye for color. When helping other gnomes choose outfits (whether they want her advice or no), she will take off her glasses so that details don't get in the way and the colors can together.

Oh, that's a Doris. She likes Girl scout cookies.

Helene said...

Hanna. She bakes by day and rocks out by night.

Fiona said...

Gittel!

Debbie Barr said...

Geraldine, of course. She would have cats, but, well... they are bigger than her.

Well, aside from the obvious, Myopia, (Nickname: Myope--my offspring says this name is too pretty) I'd have to say I think her name is--Murgle. From the ancient Scandinavian name Myrgjol--meaning "bright sea." (Get it!? It's like when you call a big man Little John--Oh, those gnome parents.)

Well so far we've got Gary the Gnome, then Gottfried the Gnome... so I'm seeing a pattern emerge here and will do my best to keep it going by nominating...

Mackenzie.

Her name is really Gwendolline Gottfreida Gunnarsdatter, but she likes Mackenzie. When she signs her name, the letters are really tiny and she dots the i with a teeny little smiley face. She knows it's silly and she should be too grown up for such things, but she figures if she writes it small enough that no one will probably notice, and it will make her quietly happy.

She is also an enormous fan of Nascar. She root for Jeff Gordon and has a (comparatively) gigantic '24' emblazoned on her gnome-sized Kitchenaid mixer. When a race is on, she will not answer the phone except during commercials, and she might be in a bad mood if Jeff Gordon is having a bad race.

Gretel. What is it with all these G names? But I do think she's a Gretel.

Jodi said...

Phylis. She loves to go swimming in pools of apple juice and reading gnome romances. All of the bugs in the neighborhood love her, as she is always giving out her homemade treats to them.
