    I want to name my pony Sir Poops a’ Stars!

  2. J Says:

    I would name mine, Buck!

  3. NeuroMan42 Says:

    I would name mine, Steve. No reason… just ’cause. The idea of an Undead Rogue named Kaustic riding on the Star-Pony Steve.

  4. Bikstok Says:

    I would call my mount “My Little Spectral Pony”!

  5. Vasher Says:

    I’d call mine ‘Ghostcrawler’s Promise.’

  6. Jonus Says:

    Mine would have to be Lord Wilbur Sidereum.

  7. Spazmoosifer Says:

    Equuleus
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equuleus_%28constellation%29

  8. Logan Says:

    I would name my pony Chance. Since I’ll have to have one to win it.

  9. Arassar Says:

    Hey Ladies, good show once again! The deal of OnLive is they have a bunch of super-powerful servers running the game you want to play and they only show you a live streaming video of the gameplay, which accounts for the lag. If they squash that down as small as possible then theoretically you could even play it on a crappy netbook. Theoretically.

    And I’d name my horse Ralph. That’s my pet name du jour.

    James

  10. Molsan Says:

    Awesome show again, ladies! That intro could use some work, though… sounded like the poor guy was recording that in his car. ;)

    Faymoose would be the name of my horse. :)

  11. mashiem Says:

    What would I call it? Not really sure…
    How about Astranox?

  12. SeiferTim Says:

    I would name it “Flight of Fancy” :P sort of a racing-horse’s name…

  13. AngerFork Says:

    I would name mine “Apollo” after the TMBG Album “Apollo 18″ with the song “See the Constellation.”

  14. Dracudian Says:

    I’d name my mount Me.Whislington =D Great show girls, love it!

    - Mads/Dracudian

  15. Dracudian Says:

    That is Mr.Whislington, sorry

  16. Hikikomori Says:

    I’d name mine Miss Epicurious Fizzlebottom. The reason why is the answer to the question, What do Celestial beings eat? so She’s Epicurious and eats anything, kinda like a goat but don’t let her know I said that. That’s also how she got her fizzlebottom moniker. Eating gnomes and random things around Azeroth gives you indegestion, hence the star dust farts. Its a girls name cause All dudes name their mechano-hogs girls names.

  17. Sunskywalker Says:

    I would name mine Skullina. Love your show!

  18. Duke Says:

    My Spectral Steed would be called Sparkles McShiny!

    I would name my Celestial Steed: Hoshino uma (Japanese for “Horse of Stars”) :).

    It was a blast being in the live chat room; keep it up ladies!

  23. Bloodroar/Aidan Says:

    I think I would name my Celestial Steed “NoTaurenAllowed” just because of how awkward a Tauren looks on it.

  24. Pelell Says:

    I would name my Celestial steed Swift Wind, after the horse in She-Ra, Princess of Power. I’m old school like that. :D

  25. Noraarm Says:

  53. Brian Says:

  69. Kim Says:

    I shall name my pretty pony “Chloe Sparklehooves” since that’s the name of the My Little Pony I had as a child.

  70. Darrell Says:

    I would name my horse Jaed’en

  71. Bill Coffin Says:

    I would call it Piebutt, named after my daughter’s favorite “My Little Pony” figure, which has what can only be described as a tattoo of a piece of pie on its rear flank. Hence…Piebutt.

  72. Dramble Says:

    With respect to the girls are always healers discussion I have a few remarks. As a male healer I don’t really get it. Healing for me has always been a more challenging and fun experience. When I ran with my guild I would constantly get crap for playing a healer, but that was just the type of guild it was and because I play a female Nelf. I suppose it doesn’t matter when I can basically choose what and who I want to run with and its just become a sort of WoW cultural thing to do.

    As I mentioned before I do play a Nelf called Moonwisher. The i was going to name her Wellwisher after the Magic: the Gathering card but that was taken and my thought process basically went, “hey Night elves like the moon right? …sure.” My guild mates came to call me Moon for short and since then I have used the Moon theme on all of my characters and have a low level Draenei named Moonmanstan and have reserved Moonhowler for my eventual Worgen. I thought I would carry that theme in to my entry in the Celestial Steed contest.

    After much internal debate I think I have settled on Moon Beam. I should mention that due to my college schedule I don’t have much time to play these days and think it would be better enjoyed by someone who could give it daily use.

    A tremendous show as always and thanks for reading.

  73. Oscar Says:

    My pony will be named bupu

  74. Naver Says:

    I named mine “They be hatin, I be riding”.

    P.S. I bought mine, don’t want to be in the contest, just LOVE you gals.

  75. Aiyake Says:

    I would name mine Stanley. After my cat….I love my cat. <3

  76. Kariyssa Says:

    I’d go with SusanPonyExpress.

  77. Daum Says:

    I’m going with “Hesona”

  78. Salreth Says:

  79. Glow Says:

    Hi, I’m Glow and I’m a Shadowpriest! I would *love* a starry mount to turn all shadow-y and fancy.

    If I won? I’d name her Glitter. We could be Glitter and Glow! *_*

    Thanks, Ladies!

  80. Boursin Says:

    I would name it Steve. It needs a butch name to make up for being a fairysparkly mount.

  81. Chris Says:

    I’d name my mount waffles :P

  82. BlackMageMog Says:

    Yay! Just started listening from episode 1 last week and now i am finally caught up, love your show and keep up the good work!

  83. Matt Says:

    I want a pony! I would name it Happy-Pony-Pants-a-Stars.

    Lol! My first time listening to the show. Love it.

  84. Hideous Says:

    I would love this mount, but to keep him mindful of why he must behave, I would name him Glueboy.

  85. Nosila Says:

    I’d name a Celestial Steed “Shits n’ Giggles”

  86. Mengy Says:

    I’d call my celestial steed Zarghonik. I’m a warlock, so that sounds demon-y enough!

  87. Eagle Says:

    I would name mine Ralff

  88. Sardonas Says:

    I would name mine “Twinkletoes.” My 3 year old would love it!

    You ladies have a great show. My wife and I love listening as it talks to the types of gamers we are. I’m semi-hardcore and she’s pretty casual.

    LoL rock!

  89. randysmolly Says:

    Totally agree with you. Healing is hard. I have had a few priests, but I really prefer DPS. I know many great guy healers, I think the misconception of girls are always healers are is the same that girls are always hunters. oh, wait, I am a hunter. :D

  90. Hoban Says:

    What would I name my Celestial Steed? That’s simple. I think we all know that it is made out of concentrated awesome held together and powered by points of light from the brightest star. Turpster is the only name befitting of such a steed!

  91. Shot Says:

    He would be dubbed “Sparkle McPonykins” and would be the proudest pony of them all!

  92. Francois Says:

    My little pawny

  93. Naddy213 Says:

    I would name it “Brownie Von Stingles” after my horse. Wierd name I know.

  94. Marytwice Says:

    I would name it Cassiopeia, like the stars

  95. AZack Says:

    I would call mine, “Sancho.” Are you Sancho? No, you are not Sancho. Neither is Scott Baio Sancho. Frank Gifford, he is not Sancho…but my pony…

  96. Puml Says:

    I need this pony . I’m trying to entice my wife back to WOW. If i win I will give her the pony and name it “Stellar”

  97. Moobacker Says:

    I would name my twilight sparkle pony Dandruff Bob because all the ones I gave seen keep dropping these big flakes every time they move. And I would wash mine in head and shoulders so that he was flake free.

    Love the show great to here a ladies point of veiw.

  98. James Says:

    I would name mine Avari, which means ‘Of the Heavens’

  99. bently118 Says:

    I’ll name him Donkey

  100. Skoobie Says:

    The Titan’s givith on to me a winged horse of light and grace…and it shall every be known as the ledgendary “Bob”…so say’s the prophet Jerematic. hehe ;)

  101. Christina Brown Says:

    Pretty good podcast. I recently wrote a blog post titled, “MY Kick-Ass WOW Catalysm Proposal”. Overall, these are tips Blizzard developers should keep in mind as they finish Catalycsm. I doubt they will listen ($$ speaks), but I hope they do. :)

    Link is here. :)

  102. odesa Says:

    I would name my Pegasus “Lucerito” is means light of my life.

  103. Trumppoll Says:

    I’d name mine “My Lil Mountie”

  104. NeoDaneroy Says:

    Hi again,

    I have already had my turn at naming my steed earlier on but I just wanted to make the comment that I am surprised nobody has chosen “Celeste”!

    After Stephanie read out my question last ep. about getting started in WoW I got stuck in immediately. A week and a half later I have a lvl 33 N.Elf Hunter on the Zul’Jin server and now a lvl 8 B.Elf Priest on Earthen Ring.

    I really think that the name WoW is not an acronym at all, it refers to what you say out loud when you grasp the depth and complexity of this crazy game!

    Looking forward to the next episode :)

    Thanks again,
    NeoDaneroy

  105. Gogurt Says:

    I would call my mount Julius Sneezer.

  106. ScottyM Says:

    Thanks for the podcast and great contest. I’m loving the names, especially Sancho and Donkey (I can imagine hacking the sound file to be Shrek’s voice saying “DONKEY!” whenever you mount). I would stick with the astronomic theme and go with Sinistra (Hogwart’s astronomy teacher). Thanks!

  107. Oddigem Says:

    The name of my Celestial Steed would be Horse With No Name.

  108. Wyndel Says:

    I believe I would name her Sparkle, because that’s just gay enough…

  109. Ralff Says:

    I would name mine TwentyFiveBucks

  110. Melyanna Says:

    “Chest Rockwell”

  111. Angelia Coraham Says:

    One of my favorite moments of Scotty Parker was that header he did whilst on the ground. Really showed his commitment to the cause! I’ll miss him alot that’s for sure
