Choose surname for family in Dom Com
« on: December 30, 2012, 06:36:06 am »
I've had this idea about making a story about a highly dysfunctional family. I was thinking of calling it 'Queen of Hearts' or 'Queen of Spades', since the the main character is a working mom of three messed up kids trying to make her delusional father proud and living with her overly optimistic say-at-home husband and his mother.

Anyhow I'm not sure if they should be called the Hearts or the Spades. I originally wanted to call them the Hearts since that is a positive image for a very negative family, although the "Queen of Spades" also has significance and would work as a title as well, and Spade is a more common surname. Queen of Hearts also has more significance, although I don't know if that is an advantage.

Let me know if you're interested in knowing more about the characters or story.
I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.

I say Spades, since it'd be less confusing to potential readers.

I think "hearts" would be a little cliche, also it's an awkward last name. Usually its "heart" instead of "hearts".

I agree that Spades is better. More subtle, and more fitting overall.
Guys, this is getting creepy. Can we talk about cannibalism instead?

If you wanna be really clever, make it "Hart."
