Looking by the name suggestions page[1], we can have a theme based on either the 
name or the link. The only problem is the theme should be as acceptable to as 
many people as possible. So, for the Leonidas theme we should stay away from: 
violence, nudity, blood, glorification of war, nationalistic sentiments etc...
I assume this is why on the themeable column the name is marked as no. But the 
suggestions you state seem to be perfectly acceptable. There is also famous 
story about Lionidas's wife "Gorgo" and a wax tablet[2].

Máirí­n, could you start a new thread with the rules and ideas as an official 
process start point? How far can we stray?
