What's Your Conservative Politician Name?

It's like the porn star name game, but for huge nerds.

It's well known that Britain's conservative politicians have some of the best names in the game, like Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, Antoinette Sandbach, and of course, Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson (yes, that's real).

And now Twitter user Alex Butterworth has come up with the perfect way to form your own Tory name.

Tory name = first name of a grandparent + the name of the first Street you lived on hyphenated with your 1st headteacher's surname.

The formula is simple: Choose the first name of one of your grandparents, then form a hyphenated surname from the first street you lived on and the name of your first school headmaster. The results are magical.

Can you beat Sylvia Dinghouse-Loftus? ^_^

@guttersmurf Alex Blythswood-Proctor. Nice.

@guttersmurf Margaret Camelot-Barton. AMAZING.

Some people did their homework.

.@guttersmurf I have literally dug out my birth and school records for this. Mavis Jägerstrasse-Thompson.

And others even gave themselves characters.

@guttersmurf @johneodonovan Ruby Lincoln-Lien. Definitely someone who works at the Foreign Office after a slight scandal at the Treasury.

You can actually hear these names calling for austerity and harkening back to the "good old days".

Some people pointed out that it doesn't really work if you're from an immigrant background.

and very fittingly, it doesn't work if you're ethnic or a migrant

This Doesn't Work If You're Ethnic

And a few people pointed out the potential security issues with the game.

Man if this isn't the most insidious bank security question farming operation I've ever seen...

This is definitely a way to guess your security questions.

So, don't give out your security details, but do let us know: What's your conservative politician name? Leave a comment in the comments section.
