Though I know the Director's Cut hasn't gotten this far, I was just wondering: Does Helen and Dave's daughter have a name?

If anyone can answer it'd be appreciated! Thank you!

Well, I do have a name for her. But I thought it'd be better if she were nameless in the strip.

Is it a secret, or may I ask what her name is? :)

I kind of like the names people keep making up for her.

The great World of Warcraft says it's Amy.

And she's been playing with the dimensional hopper....

Hey, who says they don't have several daughters? I kind of like the idea...

Which only proves that you're crazy. Several daughters=Assured Doom...But it'd probably be fun to watch.

Look, Dave went through the miracle of child birth through genetic manipulation, artificial womb, and DNA extrapolation already. He is unlikely to want to try for a second.

Heh-sez you! All the preliminary work's been done, the second time would be a piece of cake! Even if not, there's something about holding that baby that makes the horrors of childbirth fade into misty memories. Otherwise women would stop after the first one.
And I still like the idea of daughters, plural. :twisted:

*shudders*
I'm reminded of what Mell said in the future:

"What if Helen cloned herself and now there are 6 Dr. Narbons"
I think it would be worse if it was more then one Helen and Dave spawn.

So what names have people come up with? I think I've found a Jane, a Shelley, and an Amy. Any others? =) And can anyone direct me to a good fanfiction?

Fanfiction, mm?
...Why not check out The Mad Scientist Wars? This story is the original reason the forum was founded, and it's still ongoing-- it takes place some time (several decades) after the events of Narbonic, and focuses on... well, Jane Narbon, for one... anyway... why not go check it out! I'm writing a synopsis for it, but it's only good up to Part 3 so far.
