What's Your Psych Name?

What's Your <i>Psych</i> Name?

This post is in response to my younger brother’s relentless nagging for a Psych name game. (He insisted that the name game would be amazing, while I wasn't so sure.) One of the show’s running gags is the way Shawn and Gus introduce themselves with totally absurd names. So using these crazy monikers as inspiration, I've crafted a name game that requires a little more creative involvement that usual. Just follow the directions below to uncover your Psych name!
