Interesting scroll names.
 
I've come across some interesting scroll names in my time playing Angband, but I think this is my favorite so far:

You see a Scroll titled "manus wizzy".

I've been wondering whether they are completely randomly generated (the names, that is) or if there is a list of names that they are picked from.

My favorite so far has been "wizzy mo."

They're made from a collection of syllables randomly stuck together.

Not in V, actually-- they now use the same method as the randart names (Markov chains), except seeded with Latin names (and also "abracadabra", "piffpaffpouf", "izzy", "wizzy", "letsgetsbusy", "justlikethat", "hocus", "pocus", "shazam", "please", which explains why if izzy and wizzy crop up so much, since there are no other words that like them in the list...). You get some cracking scroll names in V now; I believe I got something like "precogitat" for a scroll once.

Hehe - I'm starting a petition to have Tommy Cooper and Sooty in as uniques for the next version of V...

That's only scary to Germans.

It was Protection from Evil.
