[Vote now!] Name our city!

Post by BlazeZeroThree on Thu May 16, 2013 10:10 am

(this is basically a thread picked up from here.)

As you might imagine, we're going to need some new names for this city. While Utopia is nice sounding and all, it's an awfully modern term and is in fact meant to be derisive... Once we get enough serious suggestions in, then I'll edit in a poll for this thread which can be voted upon. Sea will be cross-checking names to make sure they're not already in use or the like.

Thanks everyone!

Current list of names under consideration:
Polaris
San Aequitar
Coravum
Janatara
Lux Vallem
Equinox
Melisenda
Dawnfire

Added the suggestions so far... if there's one name you particularly like, do let me know and I'll add it to the list if I think it's appropriate.

Exactly the name I was looking out for, honestly.

This is a city in Skyrim. xD

Dawnfire.

While rather generic sounding, it has significance. Some older members may remember the old town of New Starfire(or was it just Starfire? either way).

This town was named after another Starfire, another utopian city on the world of Viridis. The home world of Faelar Laelither. So we named the new, temporary settlement after it. Yet this was just on a temporary map while we awaited returning to one of our old ones.

Dawnstar was another name I thought about, but for obvious reasons couldn't do. We've already run into one instance of accidentally naming a town after something in Skyrim... I don't think we want to give the illusion that we're like Skyrim. Though some of us love the game, myself included, the server isn't Skyrim or TES in the least.

That being said, I could find several things relating to Dawnfire and will list them myself here.

A comic book character within the DC universe.
A game company that looks like it's shut down.
A magical item within EverQuest.

Personally, not as bad as Dawnstar, but still there.

I've alphabetized the eligible suggestions and put them up in the poll; voting ends on May 25. The name with the highest amount of votes will win.

Happy voting!

And the winner is...

Dawnfire!

It's a bit early on May 25, I realize, but Dawnfire was far in the lead among the 17 voters, and the polling looked stable, so I think Dawnfire has effectively won. May the new city of Dawnfire live long and prosper!
