    It's probably his full name, but nobody calls him that.

  • I had kind of forgotten that that was his whole name until I read the court notice up close... On my second playthrough. So I completely forgot to name their kid all the way when I did that hypothetical design thing. WHOOPS!

    This is what happens when I choose to ignore EMI for too long.

  • Given that he's dead and thus his marriage with Elaine is terminated, his full name should have gone back to "Guybrush Ulysses Threepwood."

    I just made the connection. Guybrush's death is the part that Ron Gilbert contributed. He's created a plotline purely to end the marriage!

    Oh wait, never mind. I forgot that Ron isn't actually Joe Quesada in disguise. :p

  • But wouldn't it still say Guybrush Ulysses Marley-Threepwood on the tomb stone though? And wouldn't that mean that it's still his name? And if it didn't, wouldn't the eventual reverting of his death also revert the termination of the wedding/name? We don't know if that will happen yet, but it's a possibility. The line is: "...until death do us part", but one question arise: is it the state of death or the event itself that terminates the wedding? If it's the state, wouldn't the coming back from the dead, even if it would be as an undead, in effect make you married again?

    oh god, why did I stay home from work today..

    Heh, interesting thought. If Elaine got married now and Guybrush returned it was "the event of death" so they would have to get married again.
    If she doesn't marry and Guybrush comes back, things would be alright since the state of death would be terminated.

    Any logic in that? :confused:

  • Well, it's the difference between fitting 18 letters of the name he's best known as on a tombstone vs. 32 letters of his lesser-known full legal name.

    Technically between CMI and EMI.

    Only bad good can come from ignoring EMI.
