Names To Faces by bobthedalek Names To Faces by bobthedalek
Holy surprise Octaparents name reveal Batman! But what do I care, I'm probably still going to refer to them as Octamum and Octadad every now and again. :P

Anyone who's been around for a while will know it's been ages since I promised to reveal the names of the Octaparents, but at last here they are, complete with an explanation as to why Octamum was referred to as "Mrs. Melody" in the 'Baby Talk' comic. It seems 'Melody' is a family name, something which is quite rare in Equestria it seems. :P

Also, for anyone who is interested. Octadad is sat in front of a Wurlitzer Organ in the first panel. Look, he's actually doing something musical for one, now if only I could get Octamum to do something arty! =P

And for the record, yes my face does look like Octadad's on my University I.D. card. I sneezed.

Sorry to all my 'traditionalist' fans for all the digital work at the moment. Haven't had the time to go out and restock myself with traditional supplies as of late! :D

UPDATE: Went and corrected the spelling of Octadad's name. It now has two T's instead of three! :P

So, either way...she was going to have the initials of M.M.M.

YES!!! They have NAMES! Finally! Names! ... I mean erm... yes. This is a very good thing. And I really like them too. :D 'Mixed Media' especially is rather brilliant though I have to say that Ostinato suites Octadad rather well.

Wait, isn't ostinato written with a single 't', or is "Ostinatto" an intentional name thing?

Truth be told, it was a massive spelling mistake on my part due to the time of the morning I made this at. I'm thinking about trying to digitally edit it through. :P

Ah, I figured it'd had to be either that or then a reference/joke that I just didn't get.

Octadad's name is a real tongue twister. Think I'll keep calling him "Octadad". :)
