Have you alternative suggestions?

In any event, I decided on just Williams.

Dapper Gentleman
James, Sam, Robert, Tom, etc. all sound pretty prosaic as well, if you still need a first name.

@Eagal: It's a bit late, but have you considered a reference to John Major. The man so boring he ran away from the circus to become an accountant.
[up]: I'd second that.

To distinguish it just a hair, maybe make it "Jon Mayor"? (Although, admittedly, "mayor" can be seen as Spanish for "higher". Even then, though, that'd still actually fit the theme.)

What would be a preposterously hammy name for this move? I'm looking for something of a Testosterone Poisoning inducing name.

Nuclear Jawbreaker? :P

I should probably be doing something more productive.
[up]: The "Pound-ax"? The "Hammer Nailer"? The "Stumble Pummel"? The "Jaw Dropper"?
So there's a school for troubled children just outside a small city, but it's actually a militaristic, animalistic Bee People Virus that ambushes and kills or kidnaps joggers on nearby trails. Thoughts on names for this school?

[up]: The School For Mindful Discipline? (Mind full of *something*...)

The "Right Track" Disciplinary School? (Because "track" is another word for "trail"?)

The "Path More Travelled" School?

The "Pace-Setter" Institute?

The "Trouble-Free" Academy?

I'm having trouble coming up with a name for the grappling-hook like device the player gets in the game I'm working on. Basically it's upgraded twice and I need a name for each stage;

  1. A simple retractable rope which allows them to safely drop/climb down cliffs (as long as there's an anchor point they can connect it to).
  2. A bolt attachment which allows them to fire the other end of the line at certain surfaces surfaces (which it attaches to) to form a zip line which they can use to travel over wide gaps.
  3. A motorised winch which automatically reels the player in when they shoot it at a suitable surface (essentially the hookshot from The Legend of Zelda).

What are good last names for Tolkien-style Orcs? (I wanted to give one the name "Grishnakh" as a surname in homage to my favourite writer.)

I need a couple names for snack foods that the characters eat from time to time, based on the thirteen sign zodiac. I'm looking for them to be puns based on their signs. The only one I have down is the Capricorn based one, which are spicy corn chips called Capri Corns. I really don't care what kind of snack food it is, as long as it's name is a pun.
"I discovered The Secret of Long Pork Pies by eating a police officer."
May not be quite what you're looking for but what about:

1. Straight up mineral water for Aquarius

2. "Pie-seys" (for a brand of mince pies) for Pisces

3. Either ramen noodles or "Airy's" (for a brand air chocolates) for Aries

[up] Mince pies and mineral water don't seem.... snack-y enough? I like the Aries one though, so I'll use that one.
