It’s time for the eternal question to be answered. It’s been talked about on fan sites, on twitter, tumblr, etc. and now it’s time for us to let our voices be heard. What will The Hunger Games Fandom be called?
The Twilight fans are referred to as Twihards and Twifans, while Harry Potter fans are dubbed HP Nerds, Potterphiles, Potterfans, etc. Many of these names came to be naturally, others were thrust upon them by the media. Well, now it’s our turn apparently.
Ted, from EOnline’s the Awful Truth took it upon himself in an article today to name our fandom, Jabberjays. Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m not to fond of the name Jabberjays, I don’t want to be referred to as an instrument of the Capitol, but beyond that, I’m not to keen on the media as having the final say in what our fandom is called.
Therefore today we start a revolution!
Various sites from around The Hunger Games fandom are going to be asking fans their thoughts on what our fandom should be named. We are then going to pool all that information together and design a poll for fans to vote on their favorite name choice. Once the poll closes we plan on announcing the fandom formally to the media and to Lionsgate.
Now, we know that not everyone will be happy with the final name chosen, that is inevitable. We are pretty sure like other fandoms we will be known by several names, but this will give us the opportunity to speak out and not have something chosen for us.
So, please put on your thinking caps and post below in the comments any and all ideas you have for names for the fandom.
Let the Revolution begin!
