With a new July NPC, we now have two lionesses named Tefnut related to events--Tefnut, Menhit's mother, and Sangoma Tefnut in November.

This could be very confusing. I propose changing the November Tefnut's name. I specifically propose Sangoma Tefnut instead of July Tefnut because so far, November's plot is a lot less complicated. I don't know what the admins have in mind so far as far as a plot, but Tefnut has a lot of influence on the July plot, while Sangoma Tefnut's name pops up a lot less in November.

I understand that this could be a difficult change for players who have always known Sangoma Tefnut by that name, so I would fully understand any lack of support. Let me know what you think.

Edit: Bezthiel suggested just changing the spelling of Sangoma Tefnut's name so it's Tefenet instead. I think this could work better than a total name change!



This suggestion has 38 supports and 10 NO supports.

Well, I don't think it's way too confusing since the two NPCs appear in different events, at different times. This is only my opinion on this.

I don't think it's too unreasonable that two people would be named after a goddess. If there were a change, I'd say only a tiny one to call the November shaman "Tefenet", an alternate spelling of Tefnut.

I like the idea of changing the spelling of Sangoma Tefnut's name. I'll add that to the original post!

Well, the very pre-existing addition of "Sangoma" kinda differentiates the two Tefnuts, along with her looks etc. I can of course change her name completely, but there's another suggestion where players want Sangoma Tefnut to whisper-talk to dead July Tefnut as they found it cute. So hard to decide!

I've actually been thinking about flagging this for deletion, because I've been thinking about this a lot, and I actually kind of like that we have two Tefnuts. You're right, the Sangoma title does separate them, and the idea of having them meet would make much less sense if they had different names.
