    What's in a name.....Lookin for some more feedback/thoughts?

    What's in a name.....Help?

    Hello Lovelies!

    Soooooo I have been pondering something and then I realized that this is the community where the answer already lies and I am hoping you all can help me uncover it?

    I have very slowly been starting to make tails;
    it has been both an amazing and exciting experience thus far...whew!
    We have our first tail done, including out first fluke which looks like this:



    So here is the problem:
    It was named it the ISIS fluke after the beautiful and strong female myth, but with the recent activity overseas in the middle east, there are some thoughts that maybe we should change the name to something a little less...a reminder of a huge terrorist organization doing awful things in the world right now...

    On one hand, I don't want to give in to fearmongering and hatred, but on the other it just seems almost disrespectful with the situation being so intense right now.
    I had a little response in a different thread, so moving it here to see if it gets any more input

    So...thoughts from my MerFriends?

    I think if you just explain the origins of the name on your web site or wherever you plan to sell your tails, that it shouldn't be much of an issue. To be really safe, you could just state that mythology of the goddess Isis has been around several thousand years longer than present day Jihadists. ISIL is gradually taking over from ISIS as the term for the terrorist organization, anyway.

    The textures on it remind me of the evil guy, you know, the Sand Zombie King in The Mummy.
