Lol, this is how it goes...

Camptown Races five miles long
Doodah, Doodah
Camptown Races five miles long
Oh, doo-doo dah day

Oh doo-doo dah day
Oh doo-doo dah day
Camptown Races five miles long
Oh doo-doo dah day

Why'd you cry all night?
Why'd you run all day?
Camptown Races five miles long
Oh doo-doo dah day

Weird, huh? Never saw the stinking point in that song....

Yes, I am back! I have been super-dee-dooper busy. I just got back from vacation and I said to myself, "As soon as I get back, I am going to start posting on FG again. I miss those guys!" And I did miss you! I loved talking about AF with people who actually care! I might not be posting a lot in the next few days because there's still alot to do around our house, but I swear posts will start rushing in soon." Love you all!!!!

Hey, I know a bit of that song :P But it doesn't have a point, and if it has, I can't see it either :P

To all the people who think the names are something only they know about, the word "duh" comes to mind(if it actually is a word)

That was not a contributive posts. No insulting people!

I find it hard to believe that you know the meaning of every name in Artemis Fowl, nutrino. If you think they're so obvious, why don't you share some with the rest of us? Because I've spent time researching most of them, and I still don't know them all...

Ummm... you'll notice that the name of the topic was "Names- Did Anyone Notic These?" As in "anyone else." I didn't think that I was the only one that noticed them. i was just wondering if anyone else did and if they had anymore that they had found. Lighten up. :guh:

That's hilarious, :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: !! I agree with you, it sounds like the neme of a clown. Sometimes translators make strange choices, though I'm really happy with my version of the book. Very nice names and well translated story

What, "Argh Sgrunt"? Don't worry, it isn't. Argh is the noise of a scream, ya know:"AAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!", and Sgrunt is an expression used in comics which indicates that somebody is growling.
"....possibly Vinyàya. She's always had a thing for me, devilshly attractive as I am"
"You're joking, of course."
"I never joke."
