It shouldn't be locked because some jackasses are spamming the topic.  It needs to remain open for people who actually have something to say about the topic. 

Must you call people that.

I just got done removing all of my off topic posts thus removing them from my count. Please get back on topic. I suggest you do the same namelesskitty.
The irony! That comment coming from our only user to hit 25 posts per day, (now at 23 something) by having useless conversations in threads where posts count. And the user who named himself presentiment. That is some serious hypocrisy right there.
Unfortunately, this is also a useless post. Apologies, but I believed it needed to be said.
I get around a lot.

Instead of a huge list of every female philosopher, is there any peticular names anyone likes?

I personally like Cartwright, but wonder if the philosophers should be from a specific era. All of the assassins were from the Enlightenment era.

I like Hypatai.  Unlike Smith, this name points directly towards only one philosopher.

Good, the idea of Light female Spriggats remains!
Given that almost 80% of forum users would like to see them, and the number being close to 40 persons, I hope Craig will consider this, as it is certainly one of the more popular ideas around, and has been for the last 2 years!

As for female Spriggat names- they don't have to be philosophers at all, as can be seen from the names of Spriggats in TPA2. They can be writers, warriros, etc.
I'd think of Marie Curie, so a Spriggat by the name of Cruie could do the trick.
Historically, we have Joan of Arc, quite a significant figure in her time. Thus, "Arc" or "D'Ark" would be a good name (and ironic one at that).
How about also famous healers? Florence Nightingale, I think, would be highly appropriate. Thus: Nightingale.

I agree with your suggestion to broden our search to names of all people who revolutionized new ways of thinking, but I don't particularly care for your three suggestions.

Hypatai is still my favoriate and Cartwright is a close second.

Fair enough, apart from "D'Ark" I don't quite see the names fitting, but they're good illustrative examples.

Don't like much Hypatai myself, but along those lines Cleopatra actually is something quite fitting, methinks.


(By the way, what's with the mis-spellings? "broden" "favoriate"? Only reason I point out is 'cause I rarely, if ever, get a feeling of you being rushed in your posts.)

Cleopatra always was depicted as a very beautiful person. Greek goddess Persephone aka Kore kidnapped by Hades to become his wife and rescued by Hermes due to Demeter's(Kore's mother) endless wailing it finally Convinced Zeus to do something about it. Hermes by the way is my most favorite Greek god of all he is the messenger of the gods, escorts the dead, brings luck in his spare time, has a cape of invisibility, winged sandals, and has a wand that can make mortals sleep and I forgot the rest of the wands powers, also he seems more down to earth than that of the Greek Gods so is Apollo.

But she was also cunning and ruthless. She used her beauty as a weapon. Evil.
