The name turns out to be about someone who has conflicted feelings over doing a Heroic Sacrifice, not (as I expected it) a fear of death.

Well, for fear of death we have Mortality Phobia YKTTW running, so what I'm asking for is a rename. (It does sound like a dialog, anyway).

Thoughts?

The name is very misleading. I looked through the examples and it seems that most of them are misused as "people who doesn't want to die", or specifically: "people who think they would't mind death, but later realize, while they are dying, that they don't want to die after all".

The only correct examples I see in the main page are: One Piece, Busou Renkin, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, The Bible, Fate/stay night, Tales of the Abyss, Nier and Final Fantasy Type-0.

The rest are all misuse.

Could we just... not have Death anymore?
About half of the examples for Doctor Who are right. The Bible doesn't get italics.

[up]The Doctor Who entry needs to be fixed then, because nothing in those examples mentions anything about Heroic Sacrifice, and thus reads like a non-example.

Aye, rename. The title isn't really suitable anyhow.

Very non-indicative name.

I would suggest Sacrifice Hesitation for the title.

[up]Ditto.

Yeah, Sacrifice Hesitation is much better.

Well then... What else can be done? I'm not much of a TRS guy, honestly.

We should probably wait for more consensus before we take action.

Another yes for the name change. Sacrifice Hesitation is perfect

Not to make waves... but I think Hesitant Sacrifice just sounds a lot better.

[up]I don't really mind either.
Either way works for me, though Hesitant Sacrifice seems to flow better.
Words In The Heart Can Not Be Taken
Hesitant Sacrifice sounds better but doesn't carry quite the same flavour; to me it sounds like a reluctant sacrifice ("Nobody else...? No-one...? Fine, then, I'll hold the bridge") rather than the complete U-turn ("EFF this, I don't want to die") that's given in the trope description.

Edit: What about Wait I Dont Want To Die or something along those lines?

Sanity is quieter, but madness is more interesting.

We're now at 17-0 in favour for a rename. I think it's ready to call.

Indeed; let's get some suggestions.

We have two: Sacrifice Hesitation and Hesitant Sacrifice. Does anyone have additional ideas?

Should we do an alt. name crowner?

Alternative Titles: I Dont Want To Die

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
At issue:
