Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Gamaliel sounds like a Tolkien Dwarven king. Thus, it gets my vote.

Gamaliel was a Jewish Pharisee at the time of Jesus. Traditionally, he also taught Saul/Paul the apostle Mosaic law.

I'm in total agreement here! S was wrongly missing from the list.

131 Wooters. Though it is indeed a very generic name.

Oddly this does not change the Tolkien factor of my opinion.
