I'm a fiction writer and I attack god and religion in my novels. That's not the main thrust of my sci-fi and horror novels, but it's a constant in all my books (3 1/2 so far). I'm still unpublished but hope that will change this year. So, here is my question.
I wrote a sci-fi novel that takes place about 50 years in the future. One of the characters in the book is the pope of that era. What name should I use for him? Ideally, it would be a name that religious folks see as possible for a pope, while also having a snarky connotation. The last is optional but it would be nice. Any thoughts? I'm unschooled in these matters.
He is a very funny pope. I think some folks here would enjoy him. Thanks in advance for any help you may provide.
