what is your name?

From time to time Lohbado paused to contemplate his name. So many changes over the years, he could hardly remember. His birth name was Peter Stumps, son of Reverend Stonehenge Stumps a preacher at the Church of the Living Monument, a breakaway sect founded by his grandfather, ex-lumber baron, Reverend Woodlot Stumps in 1919 after he got back from WW1. Lohbado literally means, in Moronovian dialect, "the one who drools through his beard." Lohbado received this name in a gust of wind while standing on a subway platform as the train arrived. A voice said: "Lohbado". After crossing the Plains of Radiation, Lohbado's salivary glands began producing so much saliva, it kept leaking out of his mouth. He produced enough drool to moisturize a vegetable patch in the desert for a year.
