The name 'Namazu', according to Japanese myth, is the name of a giant catfish that causes earthquakes when he gets angry. He appears in many stories under many guises and is not always a harbinger of doom, for he provides much humour and comic relief as well. So Namazu is my HM boy, you can see him in my avatar.
Mojito: Because he's mojito coloured, so vibrantly turquoise. I call him Mojo though :D
Mars: He has the colours of an Ancient Roman soldier, and Mars is the God of War. He sure acts like his name! Mars has so many nicknames: Marzipan is my favourite
Rooibos: He's a red butterfly, and I was drinking rooibos tea when I was thinking of a name for him. His name was right in front of me. He's called Roo.
Chili: He's my red CT. He has the most fiery temper of the guys. And he's red. So he named himself sort of! Nicknames are Chili-Billy, Chilz,Chi, etc.
Sakura: Well, he's a light cherry blossom pink, and his fins were ripped and tattered. The Japan quake was still rattling around in my head and he sort of named himself.
Lemon: Because he's my yellow guy. My neice named him Lemony Snicket, then it was just Lemony. I sometimes call him Snicks.
'Frigga' is my new CT girl. The name 'Frigga' is that of the Norse Goddess, who is Odin's wife. She is the goddess of motherhood, marriage, and managing the household. The day of the week that is named after Frigga is Friday. I just thought it was a really cute name for her too.
Astarte: She is the Mesopotamian equivalent of Aphrodite, the ancient Greek Goddess of Luvmakin' :D
The other girls are named after characters from Middle Earth. Eowyn, Elwing, Arwen, and Indis are all strong female characters in JRR Tolkien's mythology.
