    I like it but its a little long. Either drop the wild or the underground.

    Mmmmmm... Montreal Wild Knights... Winter Knights...

    I like the "Winter Knights" better. It has a poetic ring to it. And it sounds better in French than the other one (let's keep it bilingual ! ;)).

    honestly, ?%*$& the french name. I'm sorry but there's almost no french showing up here.

    and bilingual do so.. sorry


    I'm down for Underground Knights in the end, it is the best one

    so that's my two cents.

    Underground knights.

    Kind of contradicting, isn't it?

    With underground, I would see something more in the lines of : rogues, sith, lord, mercenaries, etc...

    So... You're saying that the people who post here are the only ones who show up for fanforce meetings ? (I know, I didn't yet, but I'll do it when I can).

    Even if this was the case, do not forget that we live in a bilingual province. Yes, English is the main language here (on this board, I mean) and yes, Star Wars is meant to be seen in English, never in French. But this does not mean that the fans have to speak English only.

    I'm only saying that the name should be bilingual or at least should be easily translated and sound cool in both languages because Montreal is a bilingual city and that it is also an important characteristic of this city.

    I think saying @"$%?/ French names is too much. I mean, think about it for two seconds, great writers always have put more in their books than what a first reading tells. Scratch the surface and you can find great literary treasures.

    Now I don't mean that the name being chosen here is a literary work. Not at all. :) But I mean that we could just put that little more into it than just a name, and have the fact that our fanforce has a bilingual name as important as the name itself. Or if not, the next most important thing after it. ;)

    Well, that's cool. I don't care what language is spoken during meetings, and honestly I imagined them in French.

    Anyway, the idea remains the same...

    And I really want to come to a meeting, movie night, whatever... it's just that I couldn't until now and don't know when exactly I'll be able to... As soon as possible, I hope. :)

    Whats wierd is MUK sounds similar to another group i kind of belong to that is a drinking group like the Lush but not as large and is almost disbanned. we were the MUKKI. no real meaning behind it, i think it came out of a drunk conversation or something
