Poll - Help!!

Hi as you can see I have posted a poll (and changed the background to make it easier to read the question) and would appreciate your thoughts on which is the best name for a good baddie, or a bad goodie.
I thought the meanings might help;
Conn is Gaelic and means Chief
Drake means Dragon and comes from the Greek for serpent
Cormac is another Gaelic one and has several theories such as Son of Raven or Impure Son
Thanks for voting :)

And Now For Something Completely Different...

I started writing something completely different yesterday.  I know.  I'm difficult.  In my defense giving me a project  aka the writing competition makes me put pressure on myself and then my subconscious kicks in with an excellent distraction; ta dah - a whole new story! 
This one has a title and a couple of thousand words already, it's amazing what you can do when you are trying to avoid something else *rolls eyes*
I'll post some as I go but so far it is called Death's Daughter is set in modern day London and is about a 29 year old kick-ass witch called Sam (she is Star's second cousin - family outcast) involves a murder mystery, angels, lost souls and lots of paranormal activity.  Well what did you expect??

That way lay dragons...

I was thinking about entering this writing competition
Never having written children's fiction before I will have to do some research first but I was thinking of writing Star's backstory which was the basis for my final assignment on my writing course.  It will be urban fantasy and will definitely have at least one of these...
