After a quick read of the list, I don't see anything as unthemeable as
"sulphur", so any of the choices are acceptable IMO.
Yes that one was a real stinker... HAWHAWHAW :)
I will take them one by one and emit some quick ideas:
It may be inspired by an asteroid, but I would be tempted to challenge
the cultural taboos and use some pre-Columbian imagery (dragon serpents,
+1 I think the pre-Columbian imagery is a great idea.
Byzantine... 'nuff said :D
Stars, galaxies, we can just stole the wallpaper from the Astronomy spin
I am pretty sure our Italian friends can come with a lot of ideas about
this (I don't think we will feature Star Trek ships).
I am no big fan of this, going with (less known) Spartan kings will
be pretty much repeating some motifs tried for F11, but is doable.
 even all wikipedia has to say about it is a stub:
-1 I would definitely like to move on from the Spartan idea...
Paul gave already an idea here
Power, might, crushing everything around. But is it a good idea?
Ultimately Goliath was a loser, defeated by David.
+1 I think we could twist this around though, e.g. we could theme the artwork on defeating
the target of Goliath, posing Fedora as the David...
+1 I LOVE this one. There are so many beautiful natural patterns we could use -
I think it may be interesting to have a floral theme, with roses and
stuff. We can claim the girls temporarily overpowered the geeks at Fedora.
I have the same concern as for Hippokoon
-1 me too, please let's move on from Spartans!
It may be interesting to have a graphic theme about music and shout
"Fedora 12 rocks!"
Good thing we can shift from Ancient Greek heroes to Swiss castles, I
would try touse this in a theme.
We can try something dark, Sin City style or some Scottish references.
To go with "music" would be to obvious, we can try something like "is
+1 We could do something spooky maybe, Elvis' ghost...
The Czech character is, IMHO, a bit obscure for an international
audience so we may have to go here with the astronomy thing.
I would liked more to have in the suggestion list some references for
secondary meanings, we know is a common name, was a Greek king...
something else to try than the same old Greek theme.
+1 I think there's a lot of possibilities here tho. Alexander Graham Bell, Alexander
Method, or maybe the movie Moondance Alexander which is about ponies which leads to a
OMG!!!!! PONIES!!@!#!@$!@$ theme!
Music, classic, fine art.
Those are some ideas I got "on the spot", with some thinking I am sure
we can find some more, so any choice is doable (but I would not be happy
with repeating an "Ancient Greece" theme).
Same here, no repeats!
