Now that Hakim's out of the way, we need to decide on at least some very basic details for Queenie. There's only so long we can be non-specific for. We need a name, approximate age, and appearance. To the ideas cave, Robin!

I'm undecided. While I was of the opinion Queenie needed a fresh name I'm now leaning towards a more classic approach. Y'know, to kinda blend in with her previous mysterious and nameless un-appearance.

Elizabeth?

Well, Elizabeth is a very royal name.


Heather, any ideas?

... and somehow, it would be so very right to use it, too.

Anne. Catherine. Mary. Victoria. British history is full of queenly names.


Rose? :P

OK, but I still think we should marry our Queen at some point ^^

What, wait, weren't you against it when I suggested this for a hilarious fic?

A total parody, you mean? :D

Hey, discussing the Queen's marriage prospects on a thread about her is not offtopic. 


Discussing that other, spoilerful matter, however, is. I've x-ed the posts relating to it. We can discuss it in the Rook and Pony if you like, but such matters are not for the Storehouse. 


And Rocky, I can see you opening your mouth from here. I know the likelihood of anyone else reading this forum is minuscule, but it's the principle of the thing.

Okay, I seem to have killed the thread. :/ 


The biggest priority right now for Queenie is a name. I don't think I can take referring to her with merely pronouns much longer. I'm going to set up a poll with the seemingly most popular options on FF.N. You'll be able to get to it from my profile.

Okay, pretty much everyone's ignored the poll. But that's okay, because I have a brilliant new inspiration! Raina. Apparently it's originally derived from the French for Queen. Alternative spelling is Raine. Nicely generically Queenish, while still Western European.


Thoughts?

Oh, I don't know. I'd fancy a longer name but I haven't come up with anything useful yet. I'll give this some thought tomorrow and post a couple of suggestions.
