Indy's middle name is Walton

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indiana_Jones

See under Indy's "biography." Doesn't it sound like the perfect middle name for Indy? It just pegs him as the son of a scholar, doesn't it? Verrrry classy and distinguished sounding!

I'm not sure where they got the information for Indy's middle name, though. I'm guessing it was mentioned somewhere in the YIJC. (?)

Either way, I just love this Wikipedia entry!

It is official. "My name is Henry Walden Jones, Jr."
It was one of the first lines in My First Adventure; a voice over accompanying scenes of Indy's birth, him as a toddler playing with Indy the puppy, his father without a beard, etc.

When the episodes were re-edited into movies, a few minutes of new footage was added before going into what was once the first half of Curse of the Jackal.

VP, you might want to go put that back.

I would take Junior Jones's advice and put it back since he quoted the source.

Indy: Do it-- NOW!!
Willie: OKAYYY!!!

Got it?

What's your problem with this thread I started, VP?

Maybe he's jealous because he doesn't have a cool middle name like "Walden." Maybe his is "Aloysis" or something lame like that...

wow, he's even a mod when he isn't at the raven. do you sometimes write admonitions to your little sister when she gets annoying? do you suspend her from your room? do you tend to end discussions with your friends with something like "harry, this discussion is no longer indiana jones related, goodbye"?

VP, seriously... everybody makes mistakes. but when you behave like a cowboy shooting at sight (as, in this case, deleting information because YOU haven't heard of it yet), this isn't just a mistake.

this "hey, everybody can make mistakes" line is not for people who behave as if they were impeccable. if you think "i can make mistakes", you should act more carefully. if you think you don't need to act carefully, you don't need respect when failing because of this.

this sounds like somebody stole my purse. i believe it was my neighbour. so i beat him up real good. next morning, somebody else admits that he stole it. can i say then "well, everybody makes mistakes sometimes"?

at a closer examination, i think "wallet" would be the appropriate translation. for both, there is only one word in germany, "portemonnaie" (which actually probably is the most fitting name for such a thing anyway).

This thread has now reached the point where Paden usually weighs-in and declares it a Raven Classic.

You know, I could just imagine Marion making fun of such a name. Just to annoy Indy.
