A More Detailed Origin of Our Name

Many of you have probably heard or read the story of how we decided on the name Brobdingnagian Bards. A little known fact is where I first had heard of the word brobdingnagian. Those who recognize it from Gulliver's Travels would think I first heard it there but they would be wrong. I first saw the word in a comic strip called Fox Trot. I saw brobdingnagian in the strip and looked it up in the dictionary. It stuck with me ever since. Why am I bringing this up now you might ask? At AggieCon a few weeks ago, someone actually recognized the word from the same source!!! Completely blew me away. Her name was Michelle Wildie; a nice and ebullient girl with great friends. Fun convention and that was only one of the surprises.
