Collective Nouns for Porgs

Post by Danbo19 »

I made this account solely because I needed to tell people that the collective noun for porgs should be a "Preponderance of Porgs"

Anyone else got any good ones?

I like "preponderance" too but what about a "Gorge of Porgs"?

I have an incredible (some would say 'unhealthy') obsession with learning the collective names for things.

For example: a group of sharks is called a 'shiver', and a group of lemurs is called a 'conspiracy', and a group of bats is a 'cauldron'.
And while we know that a group of crows is called a murder, a group of ravens is an 'unkindness'.

A lot of Star Wars creatures lack collective names, so I see an opportunity here! Let me put forth some more possibilities.
A derby of fathiers
A vacuum of mynocks
A room or bumble of wampas
An odor or stench of tauntauns
A shag of banthas
A dressage of dewbacks
A trample of reeks
A soiree of acklays
A uselessness of nexu

I know that's not the point here, but my favorite of these is "a trample of reeks", followed closely by "a vacuum of mynocks".
Oh, and that's *Mr.* Acklay to you!

That's funny, the damage doesn't look as bad from out here.
