    personally, i think being politically correct is a bunch of flaming buffalo &*$!

    if one person says something "derogitory" either ot me or to someone else, i see it as fair that i be able to say it back to him/her

    Thank you very much for explaining, sorry for that, no bad intensions here.
    ...how do I call them in Europe? :crazyeye:

    edit:
    It is just we here in Eastern Europe grow up playing Indians and cowboys, never ever thinking that term Indian is something racist. Please PM me and explain how come it is racist, who said that and is that in law, sorry for my ignorance.

    Bingo. Whenever Genghis or Kublai Kahn pops up to say hello I am compelled to yell at the screen, in Ricardo Montalban accent, "I'LL SEE YOU IN Hxxx, KIRK!!!!"

    Sometimes I play as Admin in my games. (I only play single games.) It was first suggested by the game, and it sounds like a really cool name to me.

    From what I've read, many Indians don't in the least mind being called Indians and actually prefer it because they dislike the word "native" in "Native American". I suppose one can't make everyone happy.

    OK Well I sometimes do themed civilizations and name my leaders after them.
    Balki of Meops (from the sitcom Perfect Strangers) - Ottomans
    Rza of the Wu-Tang Clan - Chinese
    Tony Soprano of Jersey - Rome
    Sir Luscious of Stankonia - Khmer
    Zach de la Rocha of the Gente de la Sol - Inca
    [My first name] Marley of the Jahstifarians - Ethiopia

    Sometimes I use different leaders / civs just so I can run with the theme more accurately. Ragnar with Jersey, because were the Dimeo crime family to be a civilization surely they would be aggressive / financial. I also write down various things from wikipedia pages on the theme to name my cities.

    Other names, when not doing themes.

    [My first name] Van Halen - Dutch
    [My 3 initinals] - America (FDR)
    [My first name] Nintentdo - Japanese
    Mr. Miagi - Japanese
    Singing Loon (my Indian name, it's a tradition in my family) of Native America.

    I find doing themed civilizations is a lot more fun. I usually don't like using the default city names (America being an exception) and I also get sick of naming cities things like "Wine River" or "Desert Coast."

    My friend has been Monty Zooma of the the Aztecs and Boudilcious of the Celts.

    Does anyone else do "themed" civilizations? I think I might start a thread about this.

    oh man. A lot of good ones here, especially the last few posts. Sydhe and the rest had me laughing and it literally hurt. I had my tonsils out almost a week ago and have said practically nothing in 5 days. To actually laugh rather than merely snort air out of my nose, really hurt!! Well done. :goodjob:

    I love the Burger King name and anything that people come up with for Suryavarman is gold. There was a guy I knew in university with the name Saravan, so that's what I call him.

    I don't go so far as to rename civs. Sometimes like to play as Canada using an American civ or I play as Imhotep (Ramses) or Xerxes (Persia), etc. I play a lot of HOF games, so I usually just add "of Orange" after their name.

    The only one I really love doing is playing as Cyrus and then using the Cyrus character from Trailer Park Boys to give me the civ description: **** off, I got work to do" lol. Gotta love TPB.

    Elizabeth -> Incontinentia
    Montezuma -> F*cknose

    BTW, does anyone else name their cities after psychiatric medications?
