J. Random /J rand'm/ n.

[common; generalized from
J. Random Hacker] Arbitrary; ordinary; any one; any old.
`J. Random' is often prefixed to a noun to make a name out of it.
It means roughly `some particular' or `any specific one'.
"Would you let J. Random Loser marry your daughter?" The most
common uses are `J. Random Hacker', `J. Random Loser', and
`J. Random Nerd' ("Should J. Random Loser be allowed to gun
down other people?"), but it can be used simply as an elaborate
version of random in any sense.
