How Scottish is your name?

Postby viceroy » Sun Jul 15, 2007 11:02 am

I expect lots of you have already tried this since it was mentioned in several papers yesterday.

So how did you get on?

I'm Scottish born and bred but I have a Welsh surname and only managed to muster 7 points. However at least that's 1 point more than Edwin Morgan [Glasgow's Poet Laureate] who likewise has a Welsh surname.

I'm intrigued as to how they calculate the score. For instance 'John Noakes' scores a paltry 7, 'Lesley Judd' is even worse with 6, sexy MILF 'Janet Ellis' can only muster 12 yet 'Peter Purves' weighs in with an incredible 117! 'Peter Duncan' can only notch up 105 and he's got a Scottish king's surname!!

And MacotheIsles scored 279 while a name as Scottish as high cholesterol, 'Jock McSporran' only gets 262!!
