it was pronounced as two syllables though. We would sound cool, but we would all sound like walking voldemorts.
I'd go with a madrigal. I don't like writing them though Smile

Chaucer did... but he was a mad shagger.

I believe Chaucer would have said Madderwriggle.
Poetry would've been so much funner back then.

a rake and inveterate saucer,
whose madrigal squiggles
caused maidenly wiggles
and woo, so he'd never need force her.
