Remember when I asked you all to help me find a name for my Angel? The one in the book I'm writing? The stone statue with the longbow and scythe? Big guy, not very nice? No?

Well, regardless of that, I've worked out a shortlist of possibles, and would like you lot to cast your eyes over them, and then maybe pick one out as the one that I should use.

PLEASE VOTE at the very least, even if you don't have any further comment. If you think they're all crap, then vote for the option indicated.

Thanks for your help.

Good luck with your book!

I voted for Agrinae. I just like the way it sounds. happy.gif

Plus, from what you were saying in the first thread about naming your angel, it seems to fit his personality. It's kinda...gruff.

Zophiel, because it's the only name there that sounds angelic, and I'm of the opinion that angel names should sound angelic.

everyone HAS to vote for zophiel now, just so we find out the amusing origin laugh.gif

there is probably a reason why its being voted for, its probably because a lot of actual angelic names are 'ial' and 'phial' and it sounds pretty similar.

anyway, thats my unexpected two cents

I liked Agrinae. So I voted for it.

It reminds me of agriculture and I think that's in keeping with the angelic duties of said angel dude.

Or I could be wrong...

It's the only angelic name. The rest look kind of random to me.

Zophiel because according to my book, which happens to be the dictionary of angels including fallen angels, Zophiel is the only real angel on the list. smile.gif good job if you just made it up. Zophiel is "god's spy" a spirit invoked in the prayer of the master of the art in solomonic conjuration rites.

In which case, we can scratch him from the list. I had no idea, and I'm not using a real angel. That would defy the point rather...

Bloody good job, as it's the name I was already using, and which I'm trying to replace... laugh.gif

Yes, it would defeat the point. Then in that case I withdraw my vote entirely, since I don't like any of the others.

Furthermore, my problem with Zophiel (now removed from the poll - thanks, Missy!) is that he sounds too angelic. As I tried to explain in the first post, he's not a nice guy. Filled with a vengence which has matured over millenia, in fact. 'Zophiel' is too floaty and nice...

Meh... I expect people to disagree with me... And yet I still asked... laugh.gif

I like Agrinae...it's pretty yet strong-sounding. Kinda like "Hey, lookit me! I'm so beautiful I make your eyes bleed...and that's exactly what I'll do if you f**k with me! Heh..."

my, I sound all bloody.

I didn't think it was particularly 'nice' and such, I just have issues with authors giving angels non-angelic names and demons non-demonic names. I mean, take a look at the Old Testament. Some of the angels there were pretty bad-ass, smiting everyone in sight. Angelic is not necessarily nice. And I realise that maybe it's a little facetious of me to take issue with all the other names on the grounds that none of them end in "-el", but I guess I'm just set in my ways.
