    Western Warriors sounds like we're from Vancouver or something, so I prefer London Knights.

    Now, the clever thing about the London Knights, is that it's the name of the city's OHL hockey team. A few current NHl'ers played for London. So there's significance to the title, as well as that nice aliteration, as well as the fact that, well, London KNIGHTS, Jedi KNIGHTS, you get it.......

    Yeah. London Knights sounds better in so many ways. Western Warriors sounds like a college football team. It probably is!

    London Knights has a good ring to it. I like it. And I do get it London Knights, Jedi Knights. It makes perfect sense. Good ideas you've come up with. It should definitely be London Knights.

    I dunno...Western = the university and I'm at Fanshawe.

    Also I personally don't like London Knights, too MUCH association with teh hockey team...maybe a different one would be better

    Understood, Primrodo. Actually, I didn't come up with EITHER of those, people signing the petition did.

    At our 3rd get together, we'll have a big discussion and figure out something that everyone likes.

    Agreed. The third event would be a good time to decide all these admin things.

    :) I really like the London Knights. Primrodo is right, Western is a Uni name and it does kind of sound like a team.

    Can't we make it the london jedi knights? To avoid confusion with the hockey team??

    Thought I'd revive this some what.

    It seems that everyone likes the whole "Knights" idea, and of the polled ones, it seems its predominate.

    London Knights of course sounds too much like the hockey team...

    So why don't we shoot around "Knightly" names and see what we come uip with and we can vote for the top, say three when we are about to become a chapter.

    That way we can have a name ready, maybe even a full graphic set of everything we need.

    So comeon, list those names! :)

    I used to travel to London a fair bit back in my youth. Beautiful city really.

    For a chapter name you want to try to reflect something about the city if you can, so I racked my small brain trying to generate what images I get when I think of London. Here is a list:

    Forest City Jedi

    Ewok Knights
    see Forest above

    Thames River Knights

    London Star Wars Fanclub
    boring, but it wasn't considered yet

    London (and not the one in England!) Star Wars Fanclub

    Labbatt Warriors
    OK... its a Lush side thing, but Labbatt's is still a major employer London is it not?

    Blue Knights
    follows on the Labbatt idea, only more subtle

    FanSW
    only pronounce it as Fanshawe! Get it? :p

    OK, just an outsider's 2 cents in any case.

    Haha John!

    Out of those, I really like
    London (and not the one in England!) Star Wars Fanclub

    lol!

    Seriously though Forest City Jedi sounds cool...

    Hmmm...ideas start to form

    London = Cold Winters

    ergo:

    "Cold Winter Knights"....

    Seriously....I think it's a clever pun....

    *************

    London = University/college town

    ergo:

    Jedi Consulars

    Meh...not too good, but possible.

    **************

    London, CANADA = greatness

    ergo:

    L. C. Knights

    Knights who come from London Canada

    Knights who say 'Eh?'


    Ok, I'm out of ideas, but I like the first one....

    Peace.

    Those are all good, but I think it's important to have the word "London" in there somewhere.

    Knights who say Eh

    LMAO

    The Forest Moon

    Reference to the Forest City (London's nickname) linked to the forest moon of Endor.

    Well as long as the members aren't called Moonies, or you show fellow FanForce chapters your Forest Moon!!
