The spelling lesson...of EVIL

As an evil overlord, I am narcissistic by nature, which means (among other things) that I would like my underlings to spell my name correctly.

How well is that happening?

Let's break it down.

Google Searches For My Name, Arranged By Frequency
Sargeras - 832
Sargaras - 26
Sageras - 14
Sargares - 8
Sargereas - 6
Segeras - 5
Seargeras - 4
Sargears - 4
Saergerus - 3
Saregerus - 3
Saregeras - 3
Sargeas - 2
Sergeras - 2
Sagreras - 1
Sargaeres - 1
Sargearas - 1
Sargeris - 1

If my math is correct (and it should be, owing to my staggering awesomeness) that's 90.83% of y'all who got my name right on the first try. For the Internet, that's pretty good - I'm impressed! But for the other 9.17%, here's a little rhyme to help you remember.

S is for the sound of smashing, soothing and sublime
A is for the ancient ages, aeons lost in time
R is for relentless rage, the ruler's only rule
G is for galactic games the giant thinks are cool
E is for the endless effort of entropic ebb
R is for the razing of Anub'arak's cold web
A is for apocalypse, and aeons pass again...
Second S for Sargeras, the snarling sire of sin!

I trust we'll get it right in the future?

That kindda reminds me of a song.. (for which I will probably get killed by the Almighty "Saregerus")

L is for the way you look at me...
O is for the only one I see
V is very very, extraordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore

Sorry, I couldn't resist ^^.

If not, you could always sear it into their heads with molten power.

Only they might die before they spell your name correctly.

@ Alej: Ain't nothin' wrong with a little Nat King Cole.

@ Soeroah: You've just pinpointed the major obstacle to searing knowledge with molten power. Educators, take note!

@ tom, Tracy, & gamergirl: Aw, shucks. You guys are the best.

I just noticed that 'Sargeras' is almost a palindrome. Nobody searched for 'Saregras' according to your statistics though. Hmm...

Also, this prompted me to search for Sargeras anagrams, and I as disappointed by my failure to get any funny one. Closest I got was 'Rears gas'.

Sargeras said...

Yeah "Saregeras" would do it for a palindrome wouldn't it? But then, I suppose a name that's the same forward and backward wouldn't be very true to the "entropy" theme...

As for anagrams, I found "ear grass" an amusing mental image.

Wouldnt it be "Arranged by Frequency"?

Sargeras said...

Well, I guess technically they are *also* arranged by spelling...

Thanks for the correction. ;-)

NP, as long as theres a special place for me in the twisting nether.
