Two of these came from artifacts I saw on the TV show Pawn Stars. It greatly amused my friend when I went "wait, I need to pause that... that needs to be a pattern..."
The third came from the floor of the Sistine Chapel.
Why these names?
Pask is P for Pawn Stars and ask for a flask -- that was the item the pattern was on.
Laf is from Lafayette, because the pattern came from a piece of fabric featuring that historical figure, again seen on Pawn Stars.
Minect is totally random. Literally. It was one of the random 'type this word to post' so-called words and I thought it was catchy. ;)
