Aggro Me: The Chosen One
The Chosen One
Firiona Vie: High Elf Paladin, Chosen of the Godess Tunare, the hero sent to balance the forces of darkness and light, three month old baby from Colorado.
Yes, it finally happened. EToychest is reporting that Firiona Vie Ayers, named after the Everquest character Firiona Vie, was born to mother Tabitha Ayers on January 6, 2005.
I read this story on Kotaku, Joystiq and the Cesspit but I'll have to hand it to Joystiq for the best description: "...this may be the very first deliberate naming of a level one human after a level 60 high elf. [You have gotten better at drooling (1)]."
Here's hoping SOE gives this young lady a free lifetime Station Pass. Wait, maybe they better not encourage this...Firiona is a nice name but let's not start calling kids Fippy Darkpaw Smith okay?
In any case, on the scale of rational behavior this is far more reasonable than the guy who decided to legally change his name to Optimus Prime.
For those curious about young Firiona's namesake and the woman who plays her at conventions, here is a link.
As for me, I've been referring to my boss as Overlord Lucan D'Lere for years now. But that's only in my mind so it probably doesn't count.
