Oh, snap! Thanks for doing this again, Dolores. I thought I might have more chance than usual on this one, with no really US-centric answers, but not really as it turns out. Happy with top half.

Nitpick: septimus should be ranked at 13 with Pepperwinkle and me.

And woo-hoo, all three of us beat swampbear!

Thanks Dolores!! Your efforts are much appreciated!

And, note to self, go with my first guess--I would have finally made the top 10 if I'd gone with my initial "back" and "bill" instead of second-guessing myself with "Jack" and "Jill"
