Paladin Girl

weather: muggy/raining

mood:
I'm trying to pick a name for a new famale Paladin. I'm not sure if I'll try tanking or healing next, I'm trying not to wipe just NAMING her. XD =D


I've narrowed it down to these two and thought it would be interesting to see what other people thought.

Poll #1243572 Paladin Girl

You should name your Paladin:

Cymbeline
13(46.4%)
Tinuviel
15(53.6%)

Please select all that apply:

I play a Paladin in WoW.
0(0.0%)
I play WoW, but I don't play a Paladin.
0(0.0%)
I am a fantasy RPG'er.
0(0.0%)
I am not familiar with fantasy/RPG genre games, stories, etc. at all.
2(8.0%)
I voted for the one that sounded prettiest as a girl's name.
7(28.0%)
I voted for the one that was most appropriate for a pally girl.
0(0.0%)
I was familiar with the story behind the name "Cymbeline" before voting.
0(0.0%)
I was familiar with the story behind the name "Tinúviel" before voting.
0(0.0%)
Isn't "Cymbeline" a boy's name?
0(0.0%)
Why not "Lúthien"?
0(0.0%)


Please note: unfamiliarity with fantasy/RPG or the stories behind the two names does not make your opinion any less valid. I'm just interested in seeing where your choice is coming from. =)

[Update]

Yes, I realized after I posted that I left out the choice: "I don't have a preference either way, I'm just here for the tickybubbles and tickyboxes."

Isn't "Cymbeline" a boy's name?

Yes, it is. But doesn't it sound like it should be a girl's name? And I think it's such a pretty girl's name too.

Why not "Lúthien"?

"Tinúviel" sounds smoother to me. It was his name for her. I like Dusk Singer more than Enchantress or Daughter of Flowers.

More people knew about Tinúviel than Cymbeline, which doesn't surprise me. =)
