We started discussing it last year in this thread, which got co-opted into a handmaiden build group, so starting afresh, we have enough active royalty in our base now to make a Galactic Senate delegation.

Amadalia

Naming the delegation after our state bird, the Oriole seemed to be something people liked last year. How do either of these sound?

Icterus Delegation
Aureolis Delegation

I am happy to serve as Delegation Leader, or give someone else a try at it since I run the whole detachment. Leia Buns

I love the idea to incorporate the Oriole. After a great deal (very quick) of in depth research (read a wiki page), may I offer a name?

Oriole in Latin in 'aureolus' as you mentioned, meaning Gold (bird looked like Baltimore's coat of arms, apparently). And these birds are a part of the passerine group aka song birds.

So... Golden Song Delegation

Ooh, I like that too. I'm all up for brainstorming and then putting it to a vote.

If we want to mirror what Corvidae Temple did, the family name for Orioles is "Icteridae."

Icteridae Delegation is a bit of a mouthfull though...

I like the sound of the Golden Song Delegation. Icteridae Delegation just seems like a mouth full. Pretty - but it doesn't flow that well. And the scientific name for the Blue Crab (Calinectes Sapidus) doesn't lend itself to a Delegation name.

Also, Crabby Politicians and Diplomats seems wrong. Amusing, but wrong.

I'm really liking Golden Song as a name. Icteridae Delegation is a bit to remember to spell and pronounce. Aureolis... well that reminds me of something else entirely Embarassed

I wish I had time to lead the delegation or I'd take. I barely have time to run my own business and personal life each day LOL.

It sounds like "Golden Song Delegation" is the winner for a delegation name. I'll start chatting with Emily about a logo. :Amidala:

Golden Song Delegation is formally approved! I'm just working on getting the logo approved and a sub-forum for us before I announce it to the world. :amidala:
