This week’s Friday 5, all about making up names for groups of things:

  1. What would be a good collective name for your family, as in “A _____ of Joneses?”
    A set of Shepherds.
  2. What would be a good collective name for your closest group of friends?
    Um.  Don’t know on this one.  Don’t have a group of friends that have enough in common with each other to group like that.
  3. What would be a good collective name for the stuff in your desk?
    A “heap of trash.”
  4. What would be a good collective name for your next-door neighbors?
    A naggle of neighbors.
  5. What would be a good collective name for the people in your line of work, as in “A _____ of accountants?”
    A gaggle of geeks.
