    So what do you think–would just Nabokov have been accepted (I correctly figured out Nabokov but in the pressure of the moment couldn’t for the life of me get the Vladimir to come forward in my brain)

    • VJ says:

      I think it would have been fine because just the last name is usually sufficient and nothing to the contrary was stated.

      If I get a minute, I’ll write the show and get an official answer on it (unless I need a stamp to do it – I’m fresh out of stamps!)

    I only have 2 guesses for what Brandon was trying to write, which would have been wrong both ways: Brownread and Brownmead, which I’ve never even heard of those names, Vivian Darkblood and Vladimir Nabokov.

    funny that alex said “i hope this final is tougher than it sounds” :)

    tough enough. even my 2 miss prediction was too optimistic again. foreign born, yes, but since the name vivian darkbloom sounds english, they were maybe thinking england, scotland or so. anything but russian…
