In some Irish family and place names Kill means boy (Gilroy, Kilroy,
MacGillivray, etc. E.g. Irish Gaelic Mac Giolla Ruaidh 'son of the
redhaired lad', similar to the name of the Scottish dance tune An
Gillie Ruach, The Redhaired Boy). So "Killjoy" can be thought of as
"fun for children", entirely appropriately for the XO.
