Heya everyone! I'm organising a campus society for Fire Arts. I'm thinking about calling it Disciples of Hephaestus. Suggestions anyone?

I suck at coming up with group names - I don't tink anyone has ever liked a suggestion I made, so apparently I have no taste in this regard - either to help you find a name or judge the ones you have...

hopefully someone else can be of more assistance.

Did you intentionally go for the acronym DOH?

You need a title that can be both shortened acceptably and spelt easily, while things like Firechains camp or Twirling Fire might be boring, they are immediately memorable, whereas yours, while poetic, will mean nothing to people who don't know any mythology so you'll be referred to as "The Disciples of Heffas...no, Hepatus, um, nuh, that's not it, hang on a minute, I've got it written somewhere..."

Use your name as an addendum, it sounds too good to be discarded outright.

There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

*quickly looks up the word addendum* Swear to god, I used to have a rather extensive vocab... *mumblemumble* AH! I get it... how about LC3 Fire Artists?

We have a Circus Society here in Foulmouth. CircSoc for short.

Crap name, good people. What more could you want?

Your uni will allow a fire society? Ours won't. But then, one of our departments did burn down... Whoops. wink

Well, to have any sort of flammable stuff on campus (fuels and such) you have to have permission from Security. And since I'm a student worker in security, and I'm pretty sure our Faculty sponsor will be the head o' security, we should be good to go smile Plus student council likes the idea.

At Murdoch Uni here in Perth, somes friends ran fire twirling lessons, organised by the guild. The uni had no problems with it either, and were quite enthusiastic, guess it all comes down to indivdual uni policys and how flexibly the powers that be are.

Good luck with your society smile

I smile because i have no idea whats going on!! biggrin
