Fanfic pairings: unfortunate contractions

There's a shorthand in common use amongst certain groups of fanfic writers whereby they take the pairing they're writing ("Jack/Ianto", say) and contract the two names to give them a name for the pairing ("Janto", in this case).

It seems to me that occasionally you'll come up with an unfortunate result from this conflation... I'm thinking of Snape/Potter ("Snotter"), Mulcahy/Winchester ("Mulchester"), and Spock/Uhura ("Spuhura") as examples.

Can anyone arrive at any other particularly unpleasant contractions?
