By any other name would smell as sweet…

Khaja and her bear starred on Mania’s Name That Pet feature the other week and it’s about time I got around to actually choosing one! I have to say, the people there are very creative with their naming and there’s so many to choose from. In fact, I complied a list of all the names that were suggested:

  • Grumpy (as suggested by Pike)
  • Winnie
  • Epicdemic
  • Grisly
  • Ursus Horribilis
  • Silvertip
  • Tarnish
  • Corroded
  • CareBear
  • Dontcarebear
  • Bahr
  • Ungraya
  • Yamaan
  • Deathclaw (how witty 🙂 )
  • Pretty
  • Tethcler
  • Sparklelimpbasket (???)
  • Withered
  • Leprosy
  • Rotten
  • Curdle
  • Cuddles
  • Khadaver (nice)
  • Bearenstein
  • DK or Decay
  • Little John
  • Wakawaka
  • Swipe
  • Yoink
  • Winniedadead
  • Deadmon
  • Deacer
  • Rabid
  • Scurvy
  • Voodoo
  • Fester
  • BaronSamedi (not sure what that one’s about…)
  • Jim 😀
  • Skittles (someone then suggested that I should have a emote that says “Taste the rainbow, b*tches!” 😀 )
  • Frolic
  • Pooch
  • Hungry
  • Shake
  • Froyd
  • Thomas
  • Pooh
  • Shardik (suggested several times actually)
  • Grungie
  • Sludge
  • Ooze
  • Fozzy
  • Ozzy
  • Poxy
  • Wormy
  • Wormsy
  • Itchy
  • Ribsy
  • Baby
  • Sweetling
  • Precious
  • Happy
  • Cuddlebear
  • Scabs
  • Prophecy
  • Tazdingo (good thinking! Goes with the troll accent)
  • Patches
  • Bob 😀
  • Pestilence
  • Kasdeya
  • ExFeral
  • Ebonlaes
  • Landavarian
  • Googoo
  • Plague
  • Penicillin

So many good ones to choose from. Looking over them all now in list form, I’ve picked out a couple that I really like: Grumpy (maybe GrumpyBruce after my boss’s friend that enjoys bugging me), Voodoo (goes perfectly with the whole Jamaican-like accent that trolls have), Skittles (the whole emote thing is hilarious!), Pestilence (I mean, come on…he’s one of the four horsemen!), and Tethcler (just because it sounds cool). I’m going to think it over and maybe get some of my friend’s opinions. Thanks to everyone who submitted a suggestion and an especially big thank-you to Mania for featuring Khaja!

    “BaronSamedi (not sure what that one’s about…)”

    A reference to a 007 movie that dealt with Voodoo stuff! 🙂

    Far older than that, actually:

    In voodoo, Baron Samedi (also: Baron Saturday, Baron Samdi, Bawon Samedi, or Bawon Sanmdi) is one of the Loa. He is a loa of the dead, along with the other incarnations Baron Cimetière, and Baron La Croix.

    Baron Samedi stands at the crossroads where the souls of dead humans pass on their way to Guinee. As well as being the all-knowing loa of death, he is the loa of sex and resurrection, frequently represented by phallic symbols and noted for disruption, debauchery, and having a particular fondness for tobacco and rum.

    It’s a very ‘voodoo’ name.

    “Shardik” — well, just look here:

    ROFL! That Skittles one is hilarious. Lots of great options there it looks like. 😀

    Thanks for the references, Grezzk and Someone. I had honestly thought that someone had made the whole Baron Samedi thing up so I didn’t go looking for any info. It would be cool to have a “voodoo” name for Khaja’s bear.
