I see some people call Matt "Maffoo".

It's funny :D But why? Is it just another spelling of Matthew? or is there a story behind it?

...just curious. :happy:

It's an infantilisation of his name, which is used for God knows why. Bellamy isn't a child, and it's one of those things boardies seem to do as a way of making themselves feel a bit closer to him. Same goes for "Matteh" and "Dommeh".

 

His name is Matt, or I just stick to Bellamy as I don't know the guy.

I might be wrong but it may have originated in the Lolz thread, because it's traditional of lolz type pics to spell things in, as the member above said, in an infantised way and the word Maffoo is often seen on the pics in there. Hope that helps!

I think (and I may be incorrect) it's because of the way Matt pronounces some things with the sound ffff instead of th. So instead of Matthew, you get Maffoo.

:chuckle: Haha, okay, thanks. So it's Maffoo, Dommeh and does that mean Chris is Wolsty? :p

 

more like, "The Wolstenholme" ;)

and I always liked the nickname of "Maff" more than the entire "Maffoo", just a bit more official and it reminds me of "Macca", if you know what I mean :awesome:

:LOL: yeah, dom coined it when he started posting in there

:LOL: he thought that it would be cute

...well, every time I hear asian muse fans say "matthew" it sounds like "maffiuu" (Maffoo)

 

I call him Mateus and I'm asian :mad: jk :chuckle:

they say "myuuze" too, right?:LOL:

Does anybody know if Matt's ever mispronounced Chris as "Chwis"? 'Cause that nickname could be grounded in real life, insofar as Matt's got a bit of rhotacism.

 

As for "Maffoo," I don't remember if I first saw it in Lolz, a pornogenic thread or somewhere else, but I use it because it's cute as hell.

Wolstenmiester? (okay that was rubbish)

 

Off topic - but does anyone have a link to the interview where Matt says he has "weird fans who vote more than once on the internet"?

Thankyou.

But yeah, especially japanese, since they talk in syllables, they say "Ma-ff-yuu" so it sounds like Maffoo.

I actually kinda hate the nickname, even though I occasionally use it. :$

 

Glad I'm not the only one that's guilty of this :$
