Would it be priggish of me to point out that "Alicorn," which redirects here, means "unicorn horn," not "winged unicorn"? I'm almost certain that the Nethack wiki and the author of Luminosity are on my side here.

Well, it can also mean "winged unicorn".

That was introduced in some novel and adopted by Faudt but is a secondary definition with an artificial etymology.

The problem with using the term Winged Unicorn when it comes to the princesses Celestia and Luna from 'My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic' is what was stated by the show creator Lauren Faust.

Celestia and Luna are not 'winged unicorns' or a 'pegacorn'... but a unity, harmony, of all three races of ponies in Equestria.

That's nice... but they're still a unicorn with wings. Hence, a Winged Unicorn.

All things considered, the wiki isn't really concerned with MLP definitions. If something fits the trope, it gets listed. No matter what it's called on the show.

Worth noting that the book Celestia approvsd which Tei reads in ep one calls the sisters unicorns.

Question; in which language does 'a li' mean 'secured'?

Would it be correct to assume that this edit in September 2011: which expanded until October 8th spurred the initial October 17th 2011 version of this trope page? Yay.
