And the Winning Rat Name is...errr...still don't know! YOU DECIDE!
Now, onto the rat naming contest, so you guys totally ROCKED the name game! So much so, that I had a terrible time deciding what name are little friend will have! For those whose names are not on the list below, don't feel like I didn't like your name--please! I've entered character naming contests before and have never come close to winning! The names I chose were not just interesting names, but names that go along with the feel of Nightshade City. Below are my top picks in the order of the entries, not ranked in any way. Since I love them all, I'd like you guys to decide! The top pick will be our loveable, although not too brilliant rat's permanent moniker to be published in next year's book! Since I'm leaving it in your capable hands, I've reposted our friend's description below for reference. Please only vote once and anyone can cast a vote, not just people who entered the first time around.
I'll leave the voting open all weekend, announcing the winning name on Monday, so lots of time to drum up some support for your favorites!
Our John Doe:
He's a sweetheart through and through, but let's just say he's not the sharpest knife in the block. He's the kind of rat who knows not to give out a secret, but can be easily swindled into giving it up without even realizing it. He looks up to grown rats like him, but sees them more as parents than equals. He's lanky, with a gawky build, long necked and unkempt brown fur. He's chews on his claws quite a bit and pulls on his ears when he's nervous. His favorite food is a very sour root called Waterchip and he's been known to fall asleep in the strangest of places!
So I ask you...what is his name????
