Hello Reader.

The word doppelganger is a very violent sounding word for the thing which it is used for. A similar looking person is a doppelganger.

Words ending in ER usually signify a person or object performing an action repeatedly. 

E.g. A hanger hangs, A carver carves, A baker bakes, A sucker sucks.

A doppelganger doppelgangs?? There is just too much going on in the word doppelganger to even remotely signify a similar looking person.

So I humbly request you to to vote to remove the word doppelganger from usage from now on and replace its usage with more a pleasant sounding word of your choice.

Best regards,

Nihal
