Names Database

The Summer Winos Names Database is a partial listing of the many unseen (u) or rarely characters (s) with interesting nom de plumes mentioned in passing throughout Last of the Summer Wine‘s history. Due to the proliferation of nicknames, characters are listed alphabetically by their first name, be that real or imagined. We only started to take this seriously around the start of series five, so please feel free to leave suggestions for further entries in the comments section below.
