Let's Play the Name Game!
I have no excuse for this. I've just been playing Sims 3 more than Sims 2 recently. I know, I know, blasphemy.

I swear to god, one day, one day, I will complete a challenge. One of these days.

Hello everyone! Welcome to my newest iteration of challenge attempting, a Name Game challenge based off of cynicalbadger’s rules here. The aim of the Name Game is to have a child born for each letter of the alphabet based on their heir parent’s name. For example, someone with the name “Louise” would have six children, whose names all begin with the letters of Louise’s name. (Lewis, Olaf, etc.)

Generation 1: Thai Name
1.1 | 1.2 | 1.3 | 1.4 | 1.5

Generation 2: Huxley Name
2.1 | 2.2

Generation 3: Xenos Name
3.1


Heir Polls:
Generation 2: Boolprop | LJ
Generation 3: Boolprop

Family Tree
Right here.

Challenges:
Simself Start
Heir Polls
LVM/AVM
Helicopter Parent
Top of My Career
A Lifetime of Wanting
Patriarchy

Scorecard:
Generation 1
Spoiler:
+15 points for starting with simself

Gonna be honest, I can’t remember half the things I need to give myself points, so I’ll just be nice to myself and assume I taught Hedwvg, Umby, Xenos and Lynsz all their toddler skills. I literally cannot remember though, but you know.

Great chapter :D

Spoiler:
I love the name Tea, even if she was unwanted :P All your sims are so pretty! Also, I like Huxley - he's awesome.

Wow, the triplets are out of the house already? Seems like just last chapter they were only little babies... *sniff*

Okay, okay, teasing aside, good chapter, Thai! Nice to see all the gen 2's finding their identities, and great that Twinkle was able to stick with her sweetheart and everything. Very romantic wedding photos there. ^^ I hope that Inge spawns a bunch of purple-haired sims around the neighborhood. Also I hope that Twinkle takes over the world via story progression.

I did not forget to reply to these comments at all. I'm so sorry.

Ally:
Spoiler:
Yeah, honestly I'm sort of glad Tea was born solely so I could use the name Tea tbh :lol: Thank you! I'm so surprised at how well my sims came out! And I'm glad you like Hux, it's good someone does pfft.


Keika:
Spoiler:
I know right? :'c But man do they cash in when they move out like damn.

Thank you! I'm glad Gen 2 are finding their feet too, I just hope I can continue it over the next few gens. TwinklexDylan forever - and those two would definitely make the best photos. I do too! But so far none of the triplets have had any children :'c

Thank you for reading uwu

I enjoyed the family album-esque photos from Egypt :P
Huxley Name: Tomb Raider!
Can't wait for French adventures!

Spoiler:
Oh the puns! Tea is going to be such a fun sim to have around! XD

Huxley Name: Tomb Raider. :rotfl: But only under duress! I find tomb raiding to be a lot of fun in TS3, and some of the things they do is just so cool! Good luck keeping Huxley under control--looks like he's super determined to shake off your control!

...sorry this was such a lackluster comment. I read the chapter last night, and am only finally commenting this morning. -_- I would've read it this morning when I had time to comment, but I didn't want to put off getting to read it!

I toootally forgot about this thread, but here have some 2 year late replies :shifty:

Ally:
Spoiler:
TOMB RAIDER
I'm glad you loved them :,) Sorry about there being no French adventures. :shifty:


Keika:
Spoiler:
Tea is fantastic. She's also been thrown to the boonies of stortea progression, ahah, see what I did there? :,)
Tomb raiding is the best thing I've ever done in TS3 TBH
Sorry this was such a lackluster, late reply lol :lol:


Mia:
Spoiler:
RIP Mia :,c
But at least I can continue the challenge and am not being haunted any more. That's nice.

Zomg an update
Spoiler:
The Great Annoyance :lol:
Hedwvg, Umbroq... where do you even get these names from?
With all the reaper-pet interactions in these games I'm suspecting that Grim actually wanted to be a vet.
Wow, Yvonvw. I'm not saying you're cheating, but you're cheating.
Great chapter! Even though it took its sweet time to get here. Hint hint ;)

Mia: I know, right?
Spoiler:
Ah yes, well I've surely ascended into legend in the minds of my sims. Ascending as The Great Annoyance... is better than nothing :lol:
I just... make a list of the letters I need to get rid of and then make names from them. :shifty:
Grim would be the best vet tbh. I'd let Grim look after my cat.
Weeellll, it's not my fault that EA let us cake babies early :shifty:

Pffff, it did take a little while. :lol:

AN UPDATE?! *faints out of excitement* :P

Spoiler:
I love the pop culture references :lol:
Your narrative is hilarious xDD
The spelling of Hedwig :lol: Love how you needed to use certain letters xD
Is there a rule about using real names for this challenge? xD :lol: I love your creativity!
I can't wait to read more!

GustDragon:
Thank you! <3 I hope you like the new update!

Ally:
I'm still recovering from actually updating. It was really taxing :lol:
Spoiler:
Aww, thank you! I was so worried this one had lost it's lustre a bit but I'm glad you don't mind the narrative <3
And yeah, I don't THINK there's a rule I mean you could name a kid ABCDEF...XYZ if you wanted, but then you'd have to have 26 kids :lol: Hedwvg was probably the best spelling I've ever come up with tbh XD
And thank you! :D

Yes, like your other challenge...PROSPERITY!!

Spoiler:
I had to reread everything since I forgot who was who and where they were. I have wanted to play Sims 3 again but my new laptop crashes on a dime so there goes that option. It still lags like ten tonne truck and this laptop is supposed to be NEW!! I HATE Windows 8.1!! Kill it with fire then burn the ashes and throw them into the ocean...I have Dragon Valley too and I got all three dragons, except the black one, that was extra damn those EA money grubbers...

Shhh :shifty: One day soon, when plotty stories aren't a pain to write. :lol:

Spoiler:
I'm on Windows 8.1, and I agree. I had to leave Dragon Valley because of the lag (I'm sure I'll have to leave Bridgeport soon, as well, I'm predicting a big move every couple of generations :lol: ). The dragons are amazing, though. I love them <3

Spoiler:
Yay the Name GAme is back!!!!!!! Xenos has the best hair. My sims 3 always head up with that greenie brown hair or the pale blonde hair. Love that you're back writing. Poor you, your grandkids aren't very nice to you. Too bad Maeve isn't around to whip them into shape. Don't forget to catch the food trucks in Bridgeport, can't ride subways and not eat off food trucks :D. Great chapter!
