I have recently acquired a small child. I need to name them. Actually, I already have. I need you to remember it. But how memorable would it be if I just told you the name? Not very. Therefore, I have devised a picture from which you must derive their name!

disclaimer: none of this intro is real and is just padding

this is a picture

There is a definite answer, and I hope you may come to find it. I will release hints if many require it.

Hint:

The picture is minimal, but everything and its placement is key.

The colour implies he's German, and he's standing on top of a mountain.

The German word for "mountaineer" is "bergsteiger", but you've moved the "s" away from the "g".

His name is Berg Steiger.

Is the answer:

Snow

So the body of the person on the picture is clearly a German flag. Thus, I took the G of the eye to mean Germany.

Here's a map of the area around Germany:

Area around Germany

As you can see, the nearest country to the right of Germany that begins with an S is Slovakia. In between them (the center of the person) lies the Czech Republic.

We now move to the other part of the picture, the thing the person is standing on.

I took this to signify a mountain of some kind.

Using the help of Google like a real puzzle-solving veteran, I discovered the name of the tallest mountain in the Czech Republic: Sněžka.

Sněžka means snow, hence, my answer.

  • $\begingroup$ @Sechiro but then the correct answer would be Jon, wouldn't it? $\endgroup$ – byu Jul 6 '16 at 2:53

The answer is:

Matthew.

He is the colour of the German flag. So "German."
His eyes say G-->S so "Serman", or Sermon.
He is on a mountain, so "Sermon on the Mount."
The sermon on the mount was delivered by matthew!

    $\begingroup$ Actually, it was delivered by Jesus in the book of Matthew $\endgroup$ – Conor O'Brien Jul 5 '16 at 1:12

    $\begingroup$ So his name should be Jesus? $\endgroup$ – Nimeshka Srimal Jul 5 '16 at 9:23
  • $\begingroup$ @user3571366 if it were, there wouldn't be an accepted answer ;) $\endgroup$ – Conor O'Brien Jul 5 '16 at 17:10
