Jamie........absolutely stunning.......the name I've chosen for your cue took a little thought
but here goes and i've included some background info why this name seems well suited.
:K i s m e t"
The word Kismet is of foreign origin and is used in Turkish, Urdu, Hindi and Arabic. In Hindi it would be
pronounced more like kismat, and it means "fate" or "destiny". The meaning is exactly the same in English.
Synonyms - kismet (Merriam _Webster Dictionary): circumstance, destiny, doom, fortune, fate, lot, portion
Origin and Etymology of kismet: Turkish, from Arabic qisma portion, lot, First Known Use: 1834
Definition of kismet for English Language Learners: a power that is believed to control what happens in the future.
My 2nd choice was "Arabesque" since it means an elaborate or intricate pattern which this cue surely has.
Sticking with the Egyptian theme, I also like Osiris.

I feel it has a little bit of an Egyptian underworld feel to it. I like the name 'Anubis' or 'Rise of Anubis' named for the Egyptian god of the afterlife. Anubis weighed the heart of the newly dead against a feather to determine if they were pure enough to enter the afterlife. That makes the name even more appropriate because this cue stole my heart!
