Shoot The Moon 2 - Naming Contest!
« on: July 22, 2013, 02:56:09 AM »

Well People, its 10:00 PM.  I would have set this up sooner, but I had work today.  That aside...  *ahem*

This is your Dark Lord of Pathea Contests here with the newest contest.  We are doing another Shoot the Moon

This contest is simple, everyone may put in a name for the contest to name the Moon.   The name can be for any reason ((However, lunar references are prefered.))

There are some rules still.
-You must Bold your entry.
-One entry per person
-No Vulgar words
-If anyone enters in Pluto, I will slap you.
-You may not use the names of current Solar Bodies. 
-Moderators and Pathea staff are ineligible to win any prizes.  We are still able to participate.  If we win, the prize goes to 2nd place. 

Prize: 2 Planet Explorers Multiplayer Keys.

Notes:
We are naming a hot desert moon with a thick hazy atmosphere.

The other lunar name is Freya.


If resources allow it, voting will happen one of two ways.
1.) For every 10 entires, you all get 1 vote.  Very chaotic.
2.) Entries will be grouped up in groups of 8.  1 victor from each group.  They come together to make the large grouping where 1/2 entries are eliminated every week.  ((Will likely require a sub forum for the contest.))

That aside, feel free to put in your entries everybody!

This phase of the contest will cease next Sunday at 1:00 PM Central Time Zone.

Charon - Because it sounds hot and bothersome :D

Sat76 - This, for the Human Characters to call it. Because we are already in real life calling planets and moons by numbers and in the future when we are able to arrive at different planets ect, we would have used up all the cool names and reverted to more numbers :D

Thanatos
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanatos
Greek spirit of death and mortality

[would be better if there were gods and goddesses of illusion. I think 'Dune' should also not be allowed.]

well if the name freya is in reference to a norse goddess then maybe:

"Scholars have theorized about whether or not Freyja and the goddess Frigg ultimately stem from a single goddess common among the Germanic peoples.....and her relation to other goddesses and figures in Germanic mythology, including the thrice-burnt and thrice-reborn Gullveig/Heiğr"

(from wiki btw)

so how about gullveig , similar origins as freya but "thrice-burnt and thrice-reborn"

Iah

Egyptian god and personification of the Moon as a celestial body.
We have Frey and we are naming a Desert planet, seems fitting. :)

Darius

This would just make me think of League of Legends, even if that was not your intent with the name suggestion. But i probably share the thought of a lot of people here.

So even if this comes across as rude, i wish to down-vote this suggestion.

Sorry Redrum
