There is little doubt that the 60s were weird for a lot of reasons, but in theory it's the kids born in the 60s that are supposed to have interesting names. So imagine my surprise at gaining a healthy number names for this decade, half of which were covered in Part I. It's looking pretty close in that previous part, with Cesare Maniago holding the edge over Andre Champagne by one vote, so if you haven't voted be sure to head over there.

On that note, be sure to vote this time, too.

The intent of the vote, once again...

...hockey history is chock full of names that can pique a person's interest, whether it's because it's unintentionally funny to the English sensibility (Petr Pohl), almost regal (Normand Rochefort), or lends itself to entertaining wordplay (Darius Kasparaitis). The criteria for our 'most interesting names' is a bit loose, in that the name can strike you as any one of the above descriptors, or all of them, but ultimately you are going to vote on the name that 'strikes' you the strongest.

...and your contestants:

Rock the vote.
