  • $\begingroup$ First thing to come to mind for the infix: Rot13(Avntnen Snyyf $\to$ AS)? $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Sep 7 '18 at 11:22

    $\begingroup$ "A great channel my Suffix is" is that referenced to Yoda from "Star wars"? $\endgroup$ – NoOorZ24 Sep 17 '18 at 13:38
  • $\begingroup$ @NoOorZ24 Hmm, it could be :) $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 18 '18 at 2:39
  • $\begingroup$ Not as famous, but could the infix be about ROT13(Qvrgna Snyyf)? $\endgroup$ – Cubemaster Sep 18 '18 at 11:52

  • $\begingroup$ Dang this was a solid answer, especially with the row - line/formation thing $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Sep 18 '18 at 13:58
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah... I was really convinced of this one $\endgroup$ – Cubemaster Sep 18 '18 at 14:00
  • $\begingroup$ Very super close yet quite far at the same time (Not the precise answer) :) $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 19 '18 at 2:25

    $\begingroup$ @KevinL Could it be just the last name, with prefix r13(ebj)? That’s a line and formation... $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Sep 20 '18 at 14:58
  • $\begingroup$ @El-Guest Oh, I didn't even think about that $\endgroup$ – Cubemaster Sep 20 '18 at 15:11

Partial:

Is the waterfall Victoria Falls? which would imply the infix/middle name of the person is Vic/Victoria

$\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Nope, that's not the one I had in mind $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 14 '18 at 7:50

Not so much a "Partial Answer" as a "guess based on your note"

Your claim:

The title is a hint

That points me in the direction of

"My Favorite Things"

from

The Sound of Music

To be honest, I didn't even try the actual riddle; but I think I might have at least solved the hint.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ hmm, I think that's still not it though :D $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 17 '18 at 2:28
  • $\begingroup$ I didn't think it was the answer, but am I on the right track with the hint? $\endgroup$ – ThePuzzlingPlatypus Sep 17 '18 at 17:12
  • $\begingroup$ Well, it does relate to my favorite things but it's definitely not about music :D $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 18 '18 at 2:41

Since I think the answer @Cubemaster provided is correct, I'm not going to repeat it, but I think I know how his answer might relate to the title.

In the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter encounters a Sphinx in the maze which asks him a Riley Riddle. Is that one of your favorite Riley Riddles @Kevin ?

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Nope not that :D $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 21 '18 at 2:32
  • $\begingroup$ I just meant that I like (Answer)'s books very much $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 21 '18 at 2:42
