Talking Incoming! (Naming Thread)

I won this girl in an online auction, so almost no idea of what her personality is like yet. I've attached a picture from the listing, but it's really small, so I don't know how well you'll be able to see her. In the past, most of the names I've used have been either obscure LOTR characters (Glorfindel, Bombadil, etc.) or used words from Tolkien's Elvish. My current boy (Chalcedony) is named after a pretty kind of stone. When I write, a lot of the animals in my stories have names that are a blend of German and/or Gaelic words.

Here are some of the names I'm considering, but I am open to more suggestions.

Rosé
Opal
Akoya - a type of pearl that comes in pink
Bàn - (Gaelic) white
Réalta - (Gaelic) star or light
Loinnir - (Gaelic) shine, light, shimmer
Glanz - (German) gloss, shine, luster, splendor, sheen, glory

Of course, I can't be sure how she'll color up. I don't know much about her current living conditions or if the pictures on the listing are representative of her true coloring. She'll be shipping out to arrive on Friday after the snowstorm has passed. I'll update with more pics of her then.

I like Akoya because it's feminine and would match her color.

Pretty girl! Are you going to breed them?


I think it was you who was looking into nano fish. I found CPD is pretty easy to keep. They are my first nano fish that I've own for six weeks. I definitely recommend them.

She's beautiful!

If you want to go back to LOTR references how about Elanor?

She reminds me of a cloud.
Cirrus
Nimbus


I like Realta too, (if you don't mind putting the accent in, which I don't know how to do.)

I've considered it, but I'm not quite set up for breeding, and I'm a bit low on cash lately (I'm a freelancer, and work has been slow). I'm also not convinced that I like Cal's form enough to breed him. His coloring is stunning, but his caudal doesn't have the spread that I like, and his dorsal is a little on the thin side.

Male: Chalcedony (Cal) - HM EE
The Sorority: Kyanite - VT | Akoya - HM EE | Cobalt - VT | Tourmaline - HM
Solitary Confinement: Chrysocolla - Female HM EE
SIP: Pietersite - Female HM

Okay, so one day before my white girl is scheduled to arrive, I ended up bringing home another female (oops - sorta). So I'll need a name for her as well.

The ones I'm considering:
Kyanite - a type of gemstone
Lochán (pond - Gaelic)
Shae (ocean - Elvish)

And I've narrowed down the names for the white girl to:
Akoya - a type of pearl that comes in pink
Réalta - (Gaelic) star or light

Here's a pic of the girl I picked up today

Shae would be perfect for girl you got today. Lovely blue ocean look. Absolutely gorgeous white/pink girl. Akoya has a great meaning that suits her.
