Here's a little puzzle I threw together in honor of today. What are the pictures trying to say?

(Note: It's my first time posting here, so I'm bad at formatting, and can't figure out how to resize pictures. The caption for each image is above the image.)


6, 2

(5, 5)

5, 5

(7, 3)

7, 3

(4, 2)

4, 2

(11, 4)

11, 4

(6, 1)

6, 1

(6, 6)

6, 6


The numbers are the length of the clue for the picture and the index of the key letter.

  • $\begingroup$ "in honor [US spelling] of today" - I guess this is something to do with Independence Day? $\endgroup$ Jul 4, 2015 at 14:17
  • $\begingroup$ @randal'thor maaaaaybe. ;) Though to be honest the solutions to these pictures aren't quite the country's proudest moments in my opinion. $\endgroup$

The pictures refer to unusual celebrity baby names.

Blue Ivy Carter

Moon Unit Zappa

Blanket Jackson

North West

Briar Rose Christensen (thanks to M Oehm)

Apple Martin (thanks to rand al'thor)

Summer Rain Rutler (thanks to M Oehm)

As Bravo noted, the selected letters anagram to America.

    $\begingroup$ This might be useful. Apple Martin? $\endgroup$ Jul 4, 2015 at 14:34

    $\begingroup$ Also, you need an extra ? to make 7 in total ... and I think it's now obvious what the answer's going to be ;-) $\endgroup$ Jul 4, 2015 at 14:39
  • $\begingroup$ Prince Michael II's nickname was 'blanket.' Princess could maybe be Princess Tiaamii? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Demesne Nope, we need 11 letters for the Princess surname... $\endgroup$ Jul 4, 2015 at 14:43
  • $\begingroup$ Haha wow you're good! The last two are definitely the hardest, though. Here's a hint for you: Identify the specific princess! Maybe she has several names? $\endgroup$

The first image shows ivy, which could be a reference to the US Ivy League of universities. Let's say the keyword is LEAGUE, making the key letter E.

The second image shows a lunar rover. The keyword is ROVER and the key letter R.

The third image shows a BLANKET, with key letter A.

The fourth image shows a compass ROSE, with key letter O.

The fifth image shows a Disney princess? Not sure about an 11-letter word.

The sixth image shows an apple? Not sure about a 6-letter word.

The seventh image shows rain on a WINDOW, with key letter W.

Rearranging the letters, we could get something to do with WAR. The US is certainly a war-mongering nation, and this could fit the OP's comment about "not quite the country's proudest moments".

  • $\begingroup$ That's Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty. Not sure about the 11 letter word either though. $\endgroup$
