I am told that the name Alotian came from the first letters of the names of some friends of Warren. 

seems i remember either seeing a quote or reading a quote from Warren where he said the name came from an annual golf trip he and his other gazillionairre friends would take... and they called it "A-merica's L-ights O-ut T-our."  and they referred to themselves as the Alotians.  which all sounds pretty gay to me... but i suppose if you have a billionmillion dollars, and you build yourself a kickass course, you can call it any damn thing ya want.

and regardless of where "Alotian" came from, i do kinda like the name.  it just sounds like a golf course.. and has a classy ring to it.

Aside from being pronounced similar to the Aleutian Islands near Alaska, to me the name Alotian sounds like a race of people that Capt Kirk might run across in Star Trek.

In fact.....hmmm......Capt. Kirk did in fact appear in a show about the "Lotians" in an episode called "A piece of the pie" concerning Italian style gangsters/mob.

Nothing is as bad as Memphis. But I live in LR now. Memphis permanently in my rear view mirror. Thanks be to God.
I made the same move in 94. Haven't missed Memphis a bit.
