    we have three finalists for a name:

    #1 Avalon
    #2 Freyja
    #3 Calypso

    Voting will close in 48 hours or until there is a vast majority for one
  2. Mina Member with a "past"

    I love all 3 names but Avalon is my #1 preference so I voted for it.
    And for the youngsters of this site...this is the Avalon song (1982) by the great Bryan Ferry of the Roxy music:D

  3. Jonny Ginger Tory Witch

    CALYPSO!!!!! Although I still stand by McDonalds ofcourse :D
  4. calrisle Scrutineer

    Ooh, I bloody love Roxy Music - it's all I've been able to think about since I heard the word 'Avalon'! :D

    My favourite is 'More Than This'; the lyrics are so simply written, but the complication and carelessness of life is held perfectly in each line. The fine balance between very nearly reaching your own understanding of existence, only to realise that "there is nothing" is captured really delicately. The song on the whole seems a little hopeless, but I really love it - on days where I feel a bit blue it helps me wallow slightly but offers a little bit of light at the same time. I also think the song has a lot to say about Atheism and the non-existence of God.

    Anyway, bit of a jazz critic moment there. *Snaps out of it*

    Freyja ftw, but it's looking grim :(
  5. CTP Jass hater

    Maybe I should vote for Freyja then? I like that name best, but I'd like to remove the y from the name... And about Roxy Music, I do like the song More Than This, although I never quite viewed it the way you do :P
  6. All three names are good I think but I voted for CALYPSO :)

    I loved Roxy Music, but for me AVALON = Frankie, LOL

    FREJA is the goddess of love in Norse mythology.

    And I still think my suggestion Eutere (the Muse of Music) was a very good one :D
  7. Sorry, Euterpe :o

    official name!

    As you can see, we now have an official name for the continent: Avalon. Thank you to all who voted; and to those of you who did not have your first choice picked, you can always name cities in your country after your favourite name.
  9. Mina Member with a "past"

    So we are now officially..Avalon...ish? Avalon.....ese? Or something like that.
  10. Estêvão Did you ever know that you're (JW) my hero

    I think probably "Avalonians" :D
  11. calrisle Scrutineer

    'Avalonians' sounds about right to me... :)
  12. I agree :D
  13. Yay :D my suggestion won *feels proud and happy*
  14. Mina Member with a "past"

    Avalonians reminds me of Martians but maybe it suits us.
