Comment Contest: Give Dean Hinkson a Nickname!

Written by

So Barnard has a new Dean, and her name is Avis Hinkson. I mean, that’s a name. We’ve got PrezBo and MiMoo, we had Double D, we’ve got DSpar. Now it’s Hinkson’s turn. Whoever leaves the best suggestion wins some fancy beer from Milano and a Morningside pastry of your choosing (like a dozen Nussbaum black and white cookies). And… go!

    what about:

    we try harder (as in the avis slogan) it could be wordy, could become WTH, try harder.

    but that is working too hard. Alas I think just Avis is such a great name, you don't need a nickname.

  26. Feniosky is a badass name  

    is there no widely accepted one for dean peña mora?
    ÑaMo? (might be tough for non-spanish speakers)

  27. everyone has to  


  28. quite apt...

    Oppugno is the incantation of a spell that causes birds created by the Avis spell to attack a (not always) innocent passerby.
    It is also possible that this spell could be used to cause other items to attack a person. Little is known about this spell, as it was only used once, by Hermione in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. She uses the spell on Ron after he enters, with Lavender Brown, a classroom that she hid in.

  29. a thought?  

    how about instead of Avis, we try harder, we just call her #2?

  30. how about...
