    For the reasons I stated in the previous thread, I like the idea of naming cities after Amazons because it sounds authentic, yet unique. Naming a city after a 20th century comic book hero, no matter how great she may be, just doesn't sit well with me. It lacks creativity and ingenuity, two traits AMAZONs should be proud of. Let the other teams name their cities after modern pop culture icons, we can think of more clever ideas, which is why I vote Otreta.

    Furthermore, if my guess about Sirius is right, and they name all of their cities after stars, they will have consistent city names. We named our capital Themiscyra, after a legendary Amazonian. Diana is modern, not legendary, and naming a city Dianopolis would rupture the continuity of our city names. Continuity, while not necessary, is pretty awesome if done correctly.

    I don't like the name Dianapolis either, but Diana isn't a 20th century name...she was the roman goddess of hunt
