Rackham the Semicolon

A couple of fun personality tests found on the blog of The Girl in Black, who seems to be a CG reader (Yay!).

My pirate name is:
Calico Harry Rackham
Often indecisive, you can't even choose a favorite color. You're apt to follow wherever the wind blows you, just like Calico Jack Rackham, your namesake. You have the good fortune of having a good name, since Rackham (pronounced RACKem, not rack-ham) is one of the coolest sounding surnames for a pirate. Arr!
Get your own pirate name from

You scored 30% Sociability and 64% Sophistication!
Congratulations! You are the semicolon! You are the highest expression of punctuation; no one has more of a right to be proud. In the hands of a master, you will purr, sneering at commas, dismissing periods as beneath your contempt. You separate and connect at the same time, and no one does it better. The novice will find you difficult to come to terms with, but you need no one. You are secure in your elegance, knowing that you, and only you, have the power to mark the skill or incompetence of the craftsman. You have no natural enemies; all fear you. And never, NEVER let anyone tell you that you cannot appear in dialogue!

I think I'm a bit intimidated..

Not only do you have the bestest pirate name, but you are a superior punctuation mark!

Thanks for the plug. But not like that!

I'm also a semi-colon (30% sociability, 78% sophistication). I took the pirate name test long ago, and came up with Iron Ethel Rackham (which is why I named my girl that in Hadrian's game).

Funny, I just took the pirate test again for the hell of it, and this time I was Black Ethel Rackham. Heh.

Well I don't know Calico Jack, but a quick bit of research reveals he was an equal opportunity employer, which I like.

It appears that Dirty Davy Rackham is a hyphen. Huh-you wouldn't think it would you?

I got "Bloody James Flint". Very cool since that sounds like an awesome western movie name as well as a decent pirate name.

I also got the semicolon.
