Page Action: Fail O Suckyname

What would be the best way to fix the page?

At issue:

How should we fix the trope and related pages? Fail O Suckyname is often mixed with Unfortunate Name. Fail O Suckyname is supposed to be a subtrope of Unfortunate Name that only applies to a superhero's chosen name, or if a character willingly chooses an ugly name.

Rename to make it clear that it's a name chosen by the character. New name will be decided by another crowner. (Note: Fail O'Suckyname is a catchy trope name and could be re-cycled; Unfortunate Name could be using it.)


Improve description. It's written as Example As Thesis and focuses on superheroes, while the trope's much broader in fiction.


Unfortunate Name should be for names viewed unfortunate or embarrassing in-universe.


Merge Fail O'Suckyname into Unfortunate Name;

  • there's no need to have a separate page for "the same trope but for superheroes"
  • we would lose distinction when the hero willingly chooses horrible name and when it is the parents' doing/just unfortunate surname


Do nothing.
