    Red face Hello! English Language term I want to know!

    Is there an offical term for this type of word stringing?


    Border Collie Buddy Holly Valance

    is made up of
    Border Collie
    Collie Buds
    Buddy Holly
    Holly Valance

    Or for example:
    Trevor MacDonald Duck

    ....We have been having alot of jokes with this but are very curious to know if there is an offical term for this?
