The Azure Window, a national treasure and bona fide movie star, is pretty much fucked. It’s eroding at the speed of 50 tourists-flagrantly-ignoring-the-warning-signs per minute, and soon, the middle part will give way, leaving behind a sad, lonely stump in the middle of the sea.
And we all know that sad lonely stumps are not the same as windows, so what are we going to call it?
1. The artist formerly known as the Azure Window
Simple and effectove. Hey, it worked for Prince, God rest his sparkly purple soul.
2. Fungus-free Rock
To help differentiate from the other lonely stone outcrop
A nice, typically Maltese way of showing impersonal affection.
4. Hugo’s Limestone
They’ll take what they can get, and what they can get is pretty much anything they want.
5. Gozo High-Rise
It’s only a matter of time till we run out of space on land and our new ridiculously tall buildings start popping up at sea too.
Both a geological term and a beloved Maltese name! It’s a perfect fit.
Why not stay ahead of the curve and name it the soon-to-be most popular baby name of 2017.
8. Eileen Montesin
Still standing in the face of seemingly impossible odds – need we say more?
9. Khal Drogo’s Dick
Because God forbid we let anyone ever forget that a handful of scenes from Game of Thrones were filmed here.
