What about Sean for a common Irish name? I dunno how common that particular spelling is in the US but I would say that would probably be the most common (although not the only way) it is spelled here...

South park kids could be Eric or Stan too. Christmas could be Yule. Common Irish name could be Alan, Ewan, Owen, Alan, Ryan, Evan etc.

The chain is your friend: I would not have gotten at least four answers if I did not have the first or last letter supplied by earlier or later answers.

I'm thinking at least a few of you don't know how a chain works.

I had no idea about Hank. I thought it was just one of those American names like Chad that haven't made it over here yet.

No, it's not. Chas is a nickname for Charles. Chad is a name all its own.

Ha! I got stuck on Eric as Ernie's pal - and I know it doesn't fit the chain but I just couldn't think beyond it - plus my chain broke and I had no idea about the Huxtables' 3rd child (or any other).

No idea who the Huxtable's are either. Also never in my life heard a Henry called Hank. That must be a solely US thing. It's certainly not made it to Britain.

Nice Quiz! But who can explain more about some book named Victorious ? And does that mean it was written by Victor Hugo? I'm confused by this question and answer. Thanks

So, technically speaking, the Marx author misspelled could be Cral, or Coal, or Czzl, or Cqxl, or Crtl, or Cool since all of those are misspellings :)

'Sir Guinness' is a very clumsy clue, as that was never his name (and never could be anyone's, unless Guinness is used as a first name). He was Mr Guinness, and then he was knighted, which made him Sir Alec.
