What's in a name?

Quite a lot, as we know! It's the difference between Dread Pirate Vasquez of the Black Tide and Flaccid O'Flaherty.

Since the Monkey Island games only follows the story of Guybrush Threepwood, we don't get to learn much about your individual piratey nature. So tell us, who are YOU?

Don your saltiest sea dog accent, equip your sword, board your ship (or someone else's) and share a bit about yourself.
Pick your most Piratey name, and explain why!

  • Arrr, well, before, I said me pirate name were Haggis McMutton, but that just be the moniker I go by when sailin' out on the intertubes. Now that I be amongst genuine pirate brothers an' sisters though, I feel safe to share me real pirate name.

    Featherhand Goldbeard.

    Aye, that be me name. Featherhand because ye can oft find me with a feather in me hand - I am one of the few (apar' from the cap'n, Mad Dog McGoon) aboard me ship, The Crooked Sloop, tha' can write, so I be the chronicler, writin' down all tha' happens. Also, occasionally, I help out with medical tasks, administerin' rum and sawin' off gangrenous limbs. And aboot me second name, Goldbeard comes from me gorgeous blonde beard, that shimmers in the light o' the sun, when the salty sea air gently caresses me face. Ah, it be good bein' a pirate.

Master of squeezy Furballs, Menace of the Seven lakes beyond Imagination, Collector o' Gold, Coffee and aye...builder of the seventh bottle ship of....of.....uh....uhm....oh yeah...Oblivion - THE ONLY ship that ever crossed the gates o' hell and came back (it ran out o' Grog and ya can't dive deep into hell without Grog - it's just so non-pirate-y).

  • I go by the unmemorable name of Celebral Robotic Stinky Piratey Skunk-dog Vibius. Just call me "Celery".
