    The Exile blurb just says that the Skywalkers think she is alive. Not that she is alive.

    I'm partial to Acheron b/c it reminds me of the villian in the first Thursday Next novel. Traviss will probably retcon it as a mythical river in the seventh Corellian hell or somesuch.

    The others names are lame. Darth Lame. Lord Ludicrous.

    Umm... well Dooku did, does and will forever suck, but the name Tyrannus is bad-arsed to the bone.
    Maul was perfect for the face it was synonymous with.
    Lord Sidious... hmmm... the name just sounds wicked and smarmy.

    Darth Paxis because Paxis = Paxil and the whole thing is making us crazy. :p

    Not only do Star Wars fans hate what the authors come up with, but they hate what they, the fans, come up with too. What can possibly please SW fans? Each individual fan having an expanded Universe existing specifically for themself? Honestly, people, these names are fine.

    These name do not sux! You sux!

    Thank you! Seriously, there's no way to make people happy. I mean, it's one thing to dislike some aspects, but it seems like people automatically go on bitch mode now the moment something new is introduced without giving it a chance. These names may not be EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANTED, but they're not horrible by any means.

    Well, to be fair, it's not that the names suck, necessarily. It's that the whole situation sucks.

    I can concede that it's a lame publicity stunt and it makes the authors look pathetic. But I think that the names range from decent to good.

    Obviously not everybody feels the same way. Aren't differing opinions wonderful?

    No. They should be purged from the face of the Earth by fire and sword.

    And I think one of the principle reasons for the absence of "Darth Solus" was the fact that probably 200 people submitted it and they can't acknowledge that many people in the introduction. If you opened the book and had to read through 12 pages of names it would be a little strange. One of the parts of the contest was creativity and originality (quoted directly from the contest rules page).

    I personally liked Darth Solus and Darth Kronos but I knew people would pick them so I went with something unique of my own creation.

    The problem with Darth Solus was in my opinion clearly the fact that it was so close to Solo, and probably not the possible number of people who submitted it. And remember that it would have also had to win this vote too.[face_plain]

    When I saw Paxis, I thought Paxo. So I made this:

    This was just updated on the darthwho page.


    "The finalist names are: Acheron (a river in Hell for those who deny justice), Caedus (a battle of darkness), Judicar (the final judge), Paxis (bringer of peace) and Taral (ancient Sith for "he who protects")."

    These are the definitions according to the contest

    Acheron - River in hell - same as before

    Caedus - A battle of darkness (hmmmmmmm..... this one is different than when I made it up

    Judicar- The final judge

    Paxis - Bringer of peace

    Taral - Ancient Sith for "he who protects" (better definition but overall a stupid name

    At least it makes sense now. It completely changes Caedus so now it doesn't make sense.
