...last name Beck.

This time around, please feel free to suggest other names. As before, final poll results may not dictate actual choice.

Should I give a cryptic, Isoaker-style clue as to what I'm doing? Or not?

I still think you might be fishing for offspring names. :goofy:

Seems more like you're getting character name ideas, but for what, exactly, remains to be seen.

Offspring names...God forbid... *shudders, twitches* Besides, given that my last name starts with an "L" and the two last names I've posted have been Hart and Beck...hey, I've got enough trouble finding one girlfriend, two would be impossible.

My vote for Jade doesn't count so we're standing at 50/50 right now. Let's see some more votes, this is your chance to help make history!

I voted for Jade because I can barely prononce the second name and I did not pick the last one because I don't think that would be a name that would fit my gender correctly.

Why are you worried about it fitting your gender ????

This is not, I repeat, not a guy-name.

That's pretty much how I thought. 'Jade' is a fun name, but 'Jade Beck' doesn't flow.. very choppy to speak aloud.

Argh. Tied. Someone, please act as our tiebreaker!

First name isn't REALLY important as she'll go by Beck instead most of the time. Thanks everybody.

Voted Jade. I'm fond of one-syllable first names.

Oh Dang! It looked liked Jade was going to win, but here comes the monkey with the crazy tie! :goofy:

Seriously though, Jade? Jade Beck? Sounds like some kind of comic book character. Cynthia Beck flows very nicely. Although I don't like people named Cynthia. All the Cynthias I know are really mean.

Good god, Meredith Beck...That is a horrible name. It's hard to say it without wincing.

What is this for anyway?

I think this may fall into the realm of the sacred coin-toss! :goofy:

Considering it all, well, this poll reduced the choices from three to two, so it did accomplish something.

I don't think Jade Beck sounds any better. Cynthia Beck sounds pretty good. If Adrian has any questions he should go for the second option.

Ha, Broke the tie. As for my vote for Cynthia, like the others have said, it flows better.

If'n y'all don't like the names I've suggested, feel free to suggest your own. I included that in the first post.

I think you'll need to do a coin flip if you haven't picked one by now.
