I'm having a "why is it so hard to make this simple decision" moment...

Which is a better name for a supporting warrior-heroine:

Misska Desslok
Shakhira Desslok

Eventually, her surname changes to Steelheart, so it would be

Misska Steelheart
Shakhira Steelheart

I just can't decide... :P

misska, shakhira sounds more like a female basketball player/rapper to me.

I'd go for Misska. The other one conjures up images of Stan Lee characters; could be from Dr Strange or something. Not that that's a bad thing; especially the brief period Marshall Rogers did the artwork back in 1981/82.

Ooh did I wander off there? Too much tea.

2nd on Misska, Shakhira reminds me too much of the singer...

"misska, shakhira sounds more like a female basketball player/rapper to me."

I agree with Dudemus. I'd go with the first name, since it isn't taken by a pop singer.

Me too, I vote Misska

Flamey March 14 2008 10:19 PM EDT

Misska +1

Misska ... Love that name. As long as its pronounced "Misha" ... Not sure how else you'd pronounce it... :)

Why choose? *smile*

Does she or does she not have very honest hips?

I heard they are incapable of telling lies.
Misska sounds cool.

InebriatedArsonist March 15 2008 4:51 AM EDT

I'm going to have to side with Misska, if only to avoid referencing an annoying pop singer.

RVT March 15 2008 8:32 AM EDT

Misska, but "Whenever, Whatever" :) jk

AdminShade March 15 2008 10:00 AM EDT

Misska imo.

Lady Die March 15 2008 11:14 AM EDT

Misska!! I'm lovin' it ;)

Xenko March 15 2008 11:19 AM EDT

Misska FTW!

Kind of sounds like a kitten, but I don't know why... ;)
