Naming the pirate trader

I would like to make a motion for the Pirate Trader to be given a name. I suggest that this name be "Salty Bob." All in favor, say "aye." All opposed, give me a half-hearted, "I be a land-lubber with no backbone, and nobody likes me."--Wifey 22:55, 23 May 2006 (BST)

I think "Salty Bob" is quite funny and would be a very good name. I'm surprised he (it's male, right?) wasn't given a name, but I think it's more fun this way. — Elembis 23:45, 23 May 2006 (BST)
Now that I think about it, "Salty Jack" sounds more pirate-ish and less Tom/Dick/Harry-ish. It doesn't matter much, though. — Elembis 23:51, 23 May 2006 (BST)
Well, I specifically chose "Salty Bob" in reference to the brilliant song by the Arrogant Worms, The Last Saskatchewan Pirate.--Wifey 00:32, 24 May 2006 (BST)
I certainly understand why you'd pick "Salty Bob", then, but I still think "Jack" is a more fitting name. "Salty Bob" would be great for a player character, but how many people that trade with "Salty Bob" will associate his name with that song? (The lyrics are quite funny, by the way.) — Elembis 08:39, 25 May 2006 (BST)

Umm, isn't the trader already there or do people keep on killing him? --Simon 10:14, 25 May 2006 (BST)
