    I would like to rename Delhi to Minas Alcar, which is Elvish for "Glorious Tower", in this case representing our victory over the treacherous Indians. Post comments here, and also help me with ideas for the province name in my province thread

    It does sound like "My Ulcer" :lol:. I would rather name it to something other than Minas Alcar since it almost like an Austin Powers name joke. (Dont get me started with thoes ;) )

    :confused: Where does one get "ulcer" from "Alkar"?

    (Note: In Elvish, as well as Numenorean, which derives from it, all "C"s are pronounced "K".)

    But... I don't speak Elvish. :D (And it's kind of hard to tell from a vocabulary list...)

    I always agree with renaming the captured cities to humiliate the defeated enemy (even if I hate LOTR).

    Ulcer or no ulcer, I don't like renaming captured capitals. Another city may be fine, but the former capital of the Indian Empire should be respected...

    I say rename it. If India doesn't like having its capital renamed, then they can declare war on us again and see what happens.... ;)

    what is the sense of having "leave it alone" and "no" as 2 options in this poll? Both mean the same...

    Poll is now over, with a vote of 9 for renaming and 7 against, thus Dehli will be renamed to Minas Alcar. Thank you for your support.
