Wow, you just crowned me with the mother of all "I cant believe he said that" comments ?

I take it you googled "Fleece Johnson". I couldnt help it, thats the first name that comes to mind when I heard the name "Flynn Vincent". They might as well have named him Ruff McThickridge. Im not a fan of "trying to make him sound like a badd ass" names.

No, and I honestly don't know and don't care about whatever that name refers to since it's irrelevant to this.

Really? "Flynn Vincent" sounds like a dorky name to me, but you don't hear me complaining.

Trust me, if you knew who Fleece Johnson was, you probally would have given me 5 Unicron face balms and the star trek one too for good measure. ;)

Back on topic, the thread is about the casts screen names, so I would think all opinions would be fair game here. I cant think of anything else to discuss about a name other than why you like or dont like it, or what it reminds you of.

The backwards kind. He has a surname for a given name and a given name for surname.

That was my 1st thought as well. "Vincent Flynn" would have sounded better. This name sounds retarded.

"Flynn" and "Vincent" are both names that can work as either a first or last name. :roll:

It's probably not the 1st time you've been told this, but just because you can doesn't necessarily mean you should. :P

Well, I kinda liked the idea, just not sure how well they pulled it off. Especially with the human villain played by Patric Dempsey, a more of a romantic-guy-actor (not my personal opinion, just a generalisation) However, if Grammer is as good actor as everyone has so far led me to believe and he plays his part good and that part is written good, then he might be a villain to remember.
