He's famous for many things, but mostly for the widely misconstrued Oedipal Complex/Elektra Complex

Could someone explain them in layman's terms?

From what I remember of what I did in Psyshology, an Oedipus Complex is where a boy supposedly fancies his mother, but is subconsciously terrified that his father wioll castrate him for doing so, and this fear manifests itself as whatever problematic biehaviour he is displaying. An Electra Complex is the girl version, basically...though I'm not quite sure what the girl fears her mother will do.
Weird bloke, Freud ;).

I have a newspaper article written by Gyles Brandreth called, "10 Things You Always Wanted To Know About Freud But Were Afraid To Ask".

Is that a new word Ion to evoke creepiness and crappiness simultaneously?

Sigmund's great grand-daughter is Emma Freud who is also the daughter of Clement Freud. Her mother is June Flewett (who appears in CS Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia).

Emma is the pretty one.

I used it as a reference in a Freudian analysis of Frankenstein for literature in year 11.

Surely Clement is the pretty one!

June Flewett didn't actually appear in the Narnia books. It is said that she was the inspiration for Lucy Pevensie, although "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" is dedicated to Lucy Barfield who was Lewis's god-daughter. Possibly, Lucy in the book was an amalgam of both children.
