Luna needs a new name x.x

Yeah.
Was watching my sorority earlier, because one of my girls is badly beat up (missing a tail and almost all of her dorsal fin) and I was trying to figure out who was doing it so I could remove her.
Well, found out the culprit is Luna. Except my little Princess Luna is actually a Prince Lunar. x.x
I caught 'her' swimming up to the girl who's missing her tail and puffing her beard in her face. Except this beard was a big male beard about twice as big as her head, not the cute little girl ones that are supposed to be threatening but make me d'aww instead. He then proceeded to turn around and wrap himself around one of my new girls, Violet. /facepalm
I suppose I should have expected this - he never did show an egg spot, despite being bigger than some of the girls who did have one.
So anyways, I've removed Princess Luna and stuck him in my 10 gallon community, as well as the injured girl for treatment. But I'm not sure I want to keep calling Luna Luna, haha. Any suggestions for a name for him? Would prefer something space themed. (And also, Prince Lunar is already taken by a huge cardinal tetra, haha.)
Thanks for any help!~

Pluto used to be deemed a planet but I think it was demoted to a different "category"... due to this... apparently the term "Pluto'd" has been used in the english language with a derogatory meaning.

If someone has been "pluto'd" they have been demoted, their purpose has been reduced, their position/rank has been lowered. Maybe Pluto would be an ideal name because he's been... demoted to a smaller aquarium? I don't know xD.

While the term itself hasn't been added to the english dictionary (though commonly defined in the urban dictionary), I find it rather interesting and quite frankly hilarious. I hope your female recovers well and I hope you are able to rename Luna soon!

I feel the same way about Pluto. Still, it seems like a wonderful name and I couldn't help but laugh at the story... as long as the female is okay! Hehehe.

How about Nightmare Moon? It's what Princess Luna turns into on My Little Pony when she gets ticked at her sister.

That may have been the case of one of my "females" I keep her separated from the rest of my tank now because she is just so angry and bitie!
You could call him Sojourner that's the name of the mars pathfinder rover.

Oh gosh Don't know why I didn't think of this. I declare his new name to be Nightmare Moon! oOo Although the rest of the names are awesome, as well - I still like Pluto especially (it suited him, haha). Thank you all for the help :3
And yes, the beat up girl is getting better for anyone who's curious. She's colored back up nicely and her fins are slowly but surely getting fuller. :3
