    Red face Onamamania and Onomatomania

    This is sooooo cool! I was reading starcatchers 'Naming Profile Thread' and was googling 'Obsessive naming disorder' when I came upon this list:

    http://http://phrontistery.info/mania.html

    Near the bottom it says:
    onomamania mania for names

    Soooo...I looked it up on an online dictionary to double check. There is also onomatopmania which is similar:

    onomatomania /on·o·mato·ma·nia/ (on″ah-mat″ah-ma´ne-ah) irresistible preoccupation with specific words or names.

    I thought this was rather cool so I would share it. (Although I am maybe getting a little too excited about a word that sounds pretty cool. ~And this just proves why I have onomatomania~)

    Hahaha. I've got like four different mental/personality disorders, it wouldn't surprise me if I got diagnosed with this one too! I probably have it, honestly. I just get so excited when I hear a name I like. Ya know?

    Yeah. I go all happy and I LOVE it if there is a name on a TV show or in a book that I like because it gets repeated loads. Same with words I like.
