So uh...it turns out Strawpoll has a cap for poll options, and in less than three days, boy did we exceed that cap. I included as many of your submissions as I could, but if you don't see your name on here, try to vote for something similar. Even though I couldn't include all of your suggestions, that doesn't mean I don't love you anymore.
The poll is now live, so click here to vote: www.strawpoll.me/15366690
NOTE: You'll notice that several of these submissions don't really fit the Cradle setting, most notably Sally and Bowey McBowFace. In those cases, I'll be coming up with a setting-appropriate variation. I won't sacrifice the setting for the sake of an online poll, don't worry.
I kept it restricted to one vote per person, though I wasn't confident about that decision. It might have been better to allow multiple votes, so I'll consider that in the future.
Speaking of the future, you guys definitely came through in terms of submissions, so let me know in the comments if you'd like to do something like this again! And if so, what sort of thing would you like to name (character, place, another weapon, etc.)? And in what universe?
P.S. I'll probably include a few of these names as titles the bow has acquired over its long career, so your favorite name might make a cameo even if it doesn't win.
