I am looking for a word to describe someone who approves or denies something. However, the word must start with a "C". Here is how it is so far:

# CueCreator   <-- The person who creates the Cue
# CueCompleter <-- The person who completes the Cue
# Cue?         <-- The person who determines whether the Completed Cue is valid or invalid

"CueDECIDER" might be OK in meaning, but the word needs to start with a C. Any ideas?

Two ideas immediately spring to mind;


I think this fits in well with your existing roles.

from MW

a person who directs the action of something



This sounds like a more important role than CueController.

from MW

one of a group of people who have been given the official job of finding information about something or controlling something

At a push, CueCurator might work.It sounds too much like CueCreator though and would no doubt lead to much confusion.

from MW

one who has the care and superintendence of something


How about CueConfirmer or CueCertifier?


Would you consider Cue Concluder?

  • Hmm, that seems like a little bit of a stretch. Perhaps semantically it's ok, but I have never heard that word used in all my life in spoken English. Nov 7, 2014 at 16:33
