Ormond Sacker by Anaeolist Ormond Sacker by Anaeolist
Being a dedicated Holmesian, I knew Conan Doyle originally had Sherlock as Sherrinford, but I admit that until a few days ago I had no idea John Watson was originally Ormond Sacker.

Ormond Sacker. ORMOND. I HAVE NEVER FALLEN IN LOVE WITH A NAME AS HARD AND FAST AS I FELL FOR ORMOND.

What a hilarious bit of information.    I can see why he stopped it as either of those names together doesn't flow off the tongue like Sherlock Holmes and John Watson.  Though then again HAD he picked those names maybe we'd be saying the same about sherlock and John.

Try it:   "Sherrinford Holmes and Ormond Sacker in the news again"    "Sherringford and Ormond off on an adventure again!"  "Sherringford, the game is on, solve it!"   

No, it just doesn't fit :).   Oh lol beautiful art btw :D :D  (and funny too…I like your sense of humor)

'Sherrinford' ? 'Ormond Sacker'? Good grief, what was he thinking?! I'm so glad that never happened, although the comedic possibilities are endless :D.

Positively brilliant and hilarious, thank you.

I like his name being John better, it needs to be mundane so it gives him the sense that he's mundane and ordinary but really there is no conductor of light that could compare to him!

Plot idea: Sherlock finds out that Johns parents were initially going to call him 'Ormond' and that 'Daddy Watson' is actually John and Harriet's step father who their mum married when they were 2 years old (someone the original father died). Johns biological fathers surname was actually 'Sacker' and 'Mummy Watson' was married to him, the marriage ended when he died. From then on Sherlock makes a point to call John 'Ormond Sacker' whenever he can with the excuse that it is a lot less boring.

Yeah its a silly little plot-bunny but still. XD

That could be why John is suspicious in this comic-He knew he was nearly called Ormond and is now suspicious that Sherlock knows it too. XD

Ormond. Oh my word.

SHERRINFORD HOLMES AND ORMOND SACKER
There are just some names that should have been introduced to the world sooner, like Ormond.

Why wasn't he named Ormond Sacker? And Sherrinford isn't bad either. (Like you, I knew about Sherrinford but not Ormond.)

The comic is hilarious. Well done, as usual! :D

Agreed. Ormond is a fantastic name. Though maybe it stands out too much compared to John Watson. After all, ACD wanted the stories to be about Holmes, with Watson as narrator...

:icondaemonunix:
DaemonUnix Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2012
perhaps ACD named him John instead because John is a common name and he's supposed to be sort of a every-man kind of character
