-If there are no regular rules, then why can't I make up my own? Hmm... "Asha'Shadar" doesn't roll off the tongue anyway. I like "Ashadar," but that sounds a lot like "Mashadar," which is entirely different.-

-.evl is nothing unless you add in an "i," and get "evil." Although given that .com, .org, .edu, .net, .gov, and .mil are all the first three letters of a word, I guess it should be .evi.-
