    My mighty Palladin has always wanted a mighty steed named Twinkle.

  2. Raven says:

    I’d name it… Emelina Starla Morgana.

  3. Lorgana says:

    I would have to name her “mouth”, so I know where NOT to look at her.

  4. Colton says:

    I would either name him Sparky McSparkel or if its a her Ms Sparkella

  5. Taliesen says:

    I will name him George, and I will love him and love him and pet him and pet him. And when he does a bad thing, I will stroke his fur the wrong way.

  6. Xenaia says:

    i’d name him shellhead coz of his funky armor

  7. Pisa says:

    I would name my steed LEEEEEEROY JENKINS!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Sophillea says:

    Think I posted my wrong :P and I see mine is taken so heres my new entry:
    “Invincible Place Holder” :D

  9. Cliff says:

    Hello!

    If selected, I would call the mount Bumble Boo, because I would be giving it to my girlfriend (one of her many nicknames) who will be starting to play wow with me at the end of our tremendously stressful semester next week!

    Thanks for the show and the little contest. Take Care!

  10. Spiro says:

    I think this might be a bad or a pit cliche but I will name him peguases but to add some humor sir poops a star hmm hope it’s not too immature

  11. Erica says:

    Death Nell. :D
    Great job ladies! Love the show!

  12. Kazlaaz says:

    Great show! I’d name mine Ziggy Stardust!

  13. Rob says:

    I’ve got it… I’d name him “Vincible”. :D

  14. 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.

  15. Darrell says:

    I would name my horse Jaed’en

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

    1. 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

  18. Oscar says:

    My pony will be named bupu

  19. 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.

  20. Aiyake says:

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

  21. Kariyssa says:

    I’d go with SusanPonyExpress.

  22. Daum says:

    I’m going with “Hesona”

  23. Salreth says:

    Definitely name it Blueberry.

  24. 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!

  25. Boursin says:

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

  26. Chris says:

    I’d name my mount waffles :P

  27. 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!
    Oh, if I got a Celestial Steed i would name mine “Sparklester Twinkleton the Shiny”!

  28. Nosila says:

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

  29. Eagle says:

    I would name mine Ralff

  30. 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!

  31. 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!

  32. Shot says:

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

  33. Francois says:

    My little pawny

  34. Naddy213 says:

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

  35. Marytwice says:

    I would name it Cassiopeia, like the stars

  36. 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…

  37. 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”

  38. 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.

  39. James says:

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

  40. bently118 says:

    I’ll name him Donkey

  41. 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 ;)

  42. 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. :)

  43. odesa says:

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

  44. Trumppoll says:

    I’d name mine “My Lil Mountie”

  45. 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

  46. Gogurt says:

    I would call my mount Julius Sneezer.

  47. 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!

  48. Oddigem says:

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

  49. Wyndel says:

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

  50. Ralff says:

    I would name mine TwentyFiveBucks
