Hello again, friends! Have you been keeping up and crossing off names on the bracket?
We have been trying to keep up while we were away in California visiting family and friends. I guess with all the eating and hanging out, we didn't get to as many names as we would have liked. Now that we are back, we are ready to make a comeback, maybe every other day posting. =)
The results of the last post: Elijah beats Titus 8-2 and Cameron edges out Graham 6-4.
Now onto the next match ups:
From the HISTORICAL region: 3 Ernest vs 14 Sebastian
From the INTERNATIONAL region: 3 Enzo vs 14 Magnus
Gar: An interesting round! My first pick is Ernest. Ernest is a name from old German, that means "serious; battle to the death". It's also the name of one of my favorite writers, Ernest Hemingway. Also another famous Ernest was Ernesto "Che" Guevara, the famous Latin American revolutionary. In the other match-up, I'll be picking Enzo (a form of Henry) over Magnus because Magnus sounds too much like... Agnus (girl's name).
Siobhan: I can agree with you about Ernest because Hemingway was an amazing writer, but who doesn't love Sebastian from "A Little Mermaid." He is the right-hand man to King Triton and composer of wonderful music. As for the other match-up, Enzo is a cool name, but Magnus has such potential for awesome nicknames and stage names if he decides to become famous. Magnificent Magnus... Magnus the Great... Magnus the Magician... Can't you just see it in lights? Can't you hear the wind, string, drums, and words? =)
Gar: Well, I guess there's also "Ultra Magnus", Optimus Prime's 2nd in command, but he didn't, ummm, end up so well. And you want to name our son after a CRAB?! A better reason would be that Sebastian is the patron saint of soldiers. Also, there was a great player for the USL Sounders, a striker named Sebastian LeToux. Nope, my vote is for Ernest!
Shiv: Let's also look at the life span of these two: Ernest ended his life sooner than the natural course and Sebastian had to run away from the crazy chef to stay alive. I believe that Sebastian the crab had a stronger survival sense in his need to run away from all those knives. So I guess you are agreeing with me about Magnus... Hmmm... it will be an interesting match up in the International bracket. Happy voting!
EDIT: Voting is now closed. Thanks for voting!
