What's in a name?
We've got the epic guild names and we've got the goofy ones. We've got ones that make no sense at all.
But does it even matter? If Paragon was called "FluffyBunnyPatrol" or if Inner Sanctum was called "MOARQQPLX" would that impact their success or how we viewed them?
I spent some hours staring mindlessly at guild names recently and have come up with a top ten list of common categories of the types of names we give to our guilds. Is it scientific? No. Is it important? Probably not. But it was fun to think about and some of the names I ran across... well, let me just say that we have some interesting minds out there. :) Part of what makes us a community is how we choose to define ourselves and a big part of that is our naming process which includes the ways we name our characters and how we name our guilds. So I suppose thinking about our names is not such a frivolous endeavour after all...
