    .... Myth sounds like someone trying to say "Miss" with a lisp or something.... Besides, it's problematic for other reasons too. To me Sparkle and Light Angel sound like My Little Ponies... ^_^

    I watched a docu on the mythical Troy, and in the area where people think it mught be, the population pronounced "Trojan" like "troy-an" with the soft "j". so I can see where "Troia" came from...... and my take on the Italian translation? Couldn't care less, as that's not where her name came from.

    But personally I'd prefer her name be Darkstar, although I know that has it's own issues (apart from having two "star" names in the family... well three with Redstar -- if he still exists...lol)

    ALso, in her Titans of Myth backstory, it's sort of a version of, or maybe feminization of "Troy", as the Titans seeds were names after ancient cities.... So before she was "Donna Troy", she was "Troy". Then as an homage to the Titans of Myth (as they helped raise her and gave her powers) she renamed herself "Troia"

    I don't know what Cassie is all about these days. She should probably be called Olympia IMHO.

    Olympia makes me think of cheap beer...lol

    It makes me think of Olympia Dukakis, "there's a name you don't forget" according to Jerry Seinfeld.

    Troia is a bad name...look up what it means in Italian.

    Donna Wonder is the best name I've heard for her.

    Troian is also the old English spelling of Trojan.

    I like it better than Troia.

    I actually like the idea of Donna just going by her name. It stands out. Sounds cool. Connects to Greek myth without trying too hard. Works for me.

    If she has to have a codename, well, I'd like to see Donna return to her role as Harbinger (the only thing that has provided returns on her broken, stupid history and given her a purpose), so call her that. Donna Troy, the Harbinger of the Metaverse.

    Harbinger for short.

    Troy. It's not as decidedly, traditionally feminine as most Amazon names. It's a name that evokes the beauty of Helen and the once fabled infallibility of Troy.

    really? So, then my codename would be Matt Super? or Matt Amazing? Grammatically "Donna Wonder" sounds off...

    Donna Wonder just makes me think of Donna Summers.

    Maybe we can remove "Wonder" from the codename since Donna's evolved from being Wonder Girl. Personally, I like Fury because it ties to Amazons, even though there's a legacy for the name, we haven't seen a post nu52/rebirth version of the character except for the Earth2 child of Diana. Since Donna seems to be sporting an "A" lately, what about simply: the Amazon? This name was used by a Roman Gladiatrix in the Colosseum. If Donna still had her Titan ties, Titaness is a name used for female Titans or female descendants of the Titan Goddesses. Summary: Fury, Amazon, Gladiatrix or, Titaness.

    Wasn't Earth 2 Fury technically their version of Donna Troy? Bam.
