So in the quest to enlighten myself upon subjects unknown, I went digging for more on Mr. Nard Jones. While I realize this source is a blog of low repute, its information seems to be accurate and succinct. ... -1972.html

To quote:

Maynard Benedict Jones was born on April 12, 1904, in Seattle. Between 1919 and 1927, he lived in Weston, Oregon, where he went to high school and where he was a columnist for the Weston Leader. At Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington, Jones founded Blue Moon, a literary magazine, and served as campus correspondent for the Walla Walla Daily Bulletin. Graduating with honors, Jones set out on a career in journalism, eventually becoming chief editorial writer for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. He also began writing fiction.

Nard Jones was a prolific author of short stories, writing over 300 in all. They were published in all manner of popular magazines: The Saturday Evening Post, Collier's, Liberty, Blue Book, Argosy, College Life, Breezy Stories, Smart Love Stories, This Week, The Passing Show. His only story for Weird Tales was called "Nomadic Skull"--a title that makes you want to pick up and read--and it was published in the May issue, 1933.

So it may come as a small let-down that his name was not actually Nard. However, he did so choose to publish his works under that moniker, leaving only the conclusion that he did so choose to be known as 'Nard' by the general populace.

In lieu of adopting a hellhound, a midnight black cat, or a black crowe so one could name it Nard, one could be-friend a Bernard for the soul purpose of calling them NARD. :twisted:

Nard was one of those aromatic herbs used to make incense and perfume. Perhaps spikenard? Alexandrian businessmen sailed all over the Indian Ocean looking for such things, to sell back home and in Rome.
