View Full Version : Another Username Change Poll
01-13-2006, 04:12 PM
After reading this post (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showpost.php?p=6992709&postcount=24) in the most recent thread about the origin of usernames over in MPSIMS, I have the uncontrollable urge to change my username, which was only something I threw in when my first choice was taken.
So, I know what I want, but it's a choice between the Greek version or the Roman:
Either way, the names are derived from classical mythology: the goddess of persuasion/seduction. Sometimes said to be daughter of Aphrodite and Hermes.
Yep, that's what I want to be known as around here.
So - which version?

Suadela sounds like the goddess of Naugahyde.
Dunno if you consider that a bad thing or not.

Suadela. It looks feminine whereas Peitho seems masculine.

I'd go with Suadela, even though it sounds like litigation toward Fred Astaire's sister. (sue Adela)

I think I started something.
I like Suadela better. Less gender confusion and you could always be nicknamed Sue or Della.
So wouldn't this make you just another aspect of Venus or Cythera or Kythereia?
I might be wrong. My 4 years of latin was over 20 years ago.

Suadela has my vote, too.

I thought Suadela was a cold medicine; somethng for stuffy noses. :D

Oo, I like Suadela. Go with it!

I submitted the 3 top choices to Tuba Diva, and listed JRFranchi first but I said if there is any problems making a change that is only caps please go with the second choice. Thus I am What Exit?, I'll admit to likng it better anyway, so I am thankful to Tuba.

I like Peitho much better than the other. Sounds much more pleasant when you say it.
Hey, Jim, congrats on the name change. I like it.
01-15-2006, 04:55 PM
Peitho. Much better.
01-15-2006, 05:13 PM
Well, I suppose you could pay me Tuesday for a hamburger today. It would be so much nicer if you'd just Peitho.
