Which fantasy baddie has the best name?
This is about the deliciousness of the name - its sound, the impression it gives, and just how cool it is to pronounce. So what say you?

Cruella had the coolest song by far...

Of this list I voted Vader, but there are a few others very worthy of mention. Maleficent being among the best of them as Darkstone suggests. Saruman rolls off the tongue nicely and his lesser-used name of Curunir just evokes a "cunning mind". Can't go wrong with the ancient Greek classic of Medusa. Gothmog evokes the great Japanese creatures, speaking of which, Godzilla and Mothra deserve mention. Even though I'm not a Potter fan, Severus Snape IS a good name. Voldemort just doesn't evoke anything special though.

I'm afraid it's a sign of advanced age in TORN years...

If for no other reason than that you can't hear his name without hearing menacing music behind it ... And it's just cool.
