While messing around at one evening, I made six small drawings, one for each friend of mine.
My drawings were made to be very specific: Taking the action or object represented in any of them, you can rip out all the non-alphabetic characters, then discard one letter to yield the respective friend's first name.
For example, if I had drawn something like this:
You could expect it's talking about marriage, so "marry" would be the action, yielding, among some unusual names, "Mary". Happily, all my friends' names are in what is considered the "normal" spectrum.
Can you guess their names only from the drawings below?
My greatest friend (And love):
Note: The order has changed because of one drawing that I forgot to add to the list.
