Aptronym

Aptronym

Hello it’s Mike from mikelips.com voice over.  When people approach me in public to compliment me for my social tact, the conversation inevitably turns to ‘what is an aptronym?’ 

Simply put an aptronym is the name of someone that is uniquely fitting, or is apt, for their particular profession, the following varying examples are offered for reference;

Meteorologist, Amy Freeze. British Lieutenant-Colonel and war hero, David Danger, and Urologist, Dr. Richard Chop.

And of course there is me, Voice Over by Mike Lips.

Each with an apt name for their profession. An aptronym. Understand now?

No need to point out the obvious, but Dr. Chop is a… difficult, one to follow.
