You might have some cultural problems if you use this literally (like you could do if you used anything Maori) though it has a really cool style. (I love those block style eagles that look good as a tattoo.)

The amount of time required here is very low, so I would say it's well
spent. :-)  Remember that we're just discussing themeability, not
actually asking people to design things yet.  Once the community
decides on a name, we'll be able to proceed with the step that
actually takes considerable time. ;-)

As for pronunciation, I think that "Bordeaux" and arguably "Tettnang"
fall into the same category as "Quetzalcoatl."  (I remember first
encountering this name as a young boy and I thought it was really cool
then, so I'm happy to see it on this list.)
