I hope not.  I'm rather against a principality.  I'd like to see a
good name for the area, though.

If you remember who said such a thing, would you please ask them what
name they suggested?  Perhaps we can trace it and find out why it
wasn't on the ballot.

I, for one, didn't think anyone would be interested and didn't keep
close track of the details.  AElfwyn (from Bjornsborg) and I sent out
the names to be vetted by heralds; I can find out exactly who
commented.  AElfwyn collated the reports and summarized at need.  I
don't recall how the star ratings go ton there; I did only one.  The
Southern Regional Seneschal, whose name I am suddenly unsure of and I
am sure only that she'll kill me -- Keyna? -- anyway, I think she
suggested a round number, and I think AElfwyn and I suggested

The opinions on the names themselves are personal opinions and do not
touch me.  You have yours, I have mine, big deal.  It's the untruths
-- the accusation of rigging, of non-periodness -- that hurt me.  The
accusation of rushing disturbs me, because either
- someone didn't get a chance to hear about the process despite living
  here during it, so there was a problem
- or else it's simply untrue in that person's case
