As y’all may recall from this prior post, O Internets, I received some Plants Vs. Zombies swag from my friend Kaye! Which included this little guy, who I promptly decided required a NAME.
I have received several amusing suggestions, and now the time has come for you to decide what, in fact, I should name this zombie!
Since the poll script won’t work on LJ and Dreamwidth, if you’re seeing the post there, please be sure to click the fold link to come on over and vote! Ditto if you’re clicking over from any of the social networks. I will only count votes on the actual poll. However, don’t let this stop you from campaigning for your choices in the comments! And if you think I should add an option, by all means, campaign for that, too! I will update the poll with any further appropriate choices presented to me.
I’ll be keeping track of who sent me what suggestion, and the winner of the poll will get their choice of an EPUB or PDF of Vengeance of the Hunter! I will be running this poll until Monday, March 24th, at which point I’ll announce the winner. Vote early! Vote often! Vote ZOMBIE!

“Mal” requires a bit of explanation–because Jess on Facebook quite correctly pointed out that the zombie is wearing a brown coat, therefore, he must be Mal!
“Gerald”, “Steve”, and “Fred” were all submitted as being generally self-evident, as those particular submitters opined that the zombie clearly looked like all of these choices.
“Fluffy” is because the zombie is cute, although that’s not normally a word I associate with zombies. “Fluffy”, that is. Though I suppose “cute” is also not normally a word associated with zombies. Unless, of course, you’re a rabid PvZ fan.
“Lurch” is because, quote, “he just keeps lurching along”.
And “Beldar” is an old-school reference some of you younguns out there might not get–because the zombie has a cone on his head, you see. I’m pretty sure however that this little guy is incapable of saying WE ARE FROM FRANCE.
