I was going through photos and putting the names on files. I labeled Center Ice and next was Ice planet. Center Ice. Ice Planet. I had labeled Planet Hollywood not too long before. And I was doing Superstition Iris Gardens and I naturally thought of Roger's Hollywood Nights. Where does it stop. It could go a long way using TWiki, but that's sort of cheating. Can you think of any other strings?

Forget what I said about cheating. Using Twiki makes it a game. You have to choose which iris name to use to get to the next name. Knowing a lot of names is a help so you know where you are heading.

Maybe there should be an Acorn prize for the best one?

WARNING: You can probably waste a lot of time doing this.

Another variation would be to all start with the same two word iris name and see who can go the farthest. Or the first one to post a string of a certain length is the winner.
Lots of ideas on ways to waste time. But you'll get an idea of just how many names are out there.

Phenomenal, Tom!! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Barb -- you've probably already figured this out -- the second word in a given name must be the first word in the next name. Does that make sense?
