I explained D'Argo's name in an earlier post, but coming back to tell about my new girlies:
Jerrica (Jerrica Benton) is Jem's real name (the cartoon). Her coloring is pastel and pink, and she is so demure-looking in the face, I just kept seeing Jem with her. She seems so girly.
Lady Amalthea is the name the unicorn goes by in The Last Unicorn by Peter S Beagle, when she is turned into a human. My fishie has a dot in the middle of her forehead just like the character does in the movie. This is my favorite book. She's also very pale and pastel, like I'd imagine a unicorn to be.
Madame Razz was one of She-Ra's friends, a friendly but kind of bumbly witch. I named my big-momma red cambodian CT after her because their coloring is similar. I call her Razz.
Lalla Rookh is after a character from an old story. I've always liked the name, it's so flowy and pretty. It means "tulip-cheeked." She is a red VT and very flowy and feminine looking so I thought it worked for her.
Rayleigh Scattering is a science term, basically the multitoned radiation of light, like a sunset or through a prism. Her fins remind me of a sunset, so I went with Rayleigh. She is a dark blue/teal/red VT. Her color is so hard to describe, so Rayleigh Scattering is perfect for her.
lastly, Jullanar of the Sea- another old name, from The Arabian Nights. Jullanar was a slave-girl who an old, childless king fell in love with. She never spoke, but once he professed his love, she did, and told him she was a princess from the sea. I wanted something exotic for this one, she a teal CT with red accents. She looks like a little jewel, so I call her that- Jul.
