This is all wrong.
If a Spoon and a Fork = a Spork
the rest should follow:
Fork + Knife = Fife, or Fofe
Knife + Spoon = Knoon
And where did ‘Splayd’ come from? Who stuck the ‘D’ on the end?
I would name the grand unification a ‘Spornife’ or perhaps ‘Knorkoon’. If the marketing department forced me to stick to the single syllable formula I would go for ‘Spink’ or ‘Knorn’.
I need a fork ‘n’ knife, and while I’m in the kitchen, you for tea, or you for coffee?
It’s clearly a Spifrk.
Splayd is the brand name for a sporf, similar to Hoover/Vaccum Cleaner.

To my mind:
Spork + Spife + Knork = Spifork or Sporkife
Or, startting from scratch:
Fork + Spoon + Knife = Sporkife or Knorkoon or Foonife
So I’d have to go with Sporkife
surely it’s a Fo’spife?
This proliferation of cutlery is worrying. Three pieces is already too many and these new by hybrids just make it worse.
Anything that can be eaten with a spoon could simply be drunk (or slurped a least). Anything a fork can do, fingers can probably do better. All we really need is the knife which can double as a means to hunt food as well as prepare and eat it.
And I agree with Kevin, if we must hybridise the hybrids, it’s a ‘knorn’.
