    These are the only two I really liked out of the given options.

    I'm curious as to why Anemoth didn't make it through. I thought it was a pretty good name. Anem = wind, which could be interpreted as the winds of the Angels given that Angels are often shown with wings in biblical depictions. But maybe I'm just being a curmudgeon and fail to realize that my submission wasn't really all that.

    I don't mean to offend anyone here, but this selection of names is really terrible. Not only do they read terribly for the most part, but some of them seem to borrow a reasonably common suffix from a very rare word to form a portmanteau, which is kind of dumb. You need to be able to identify the word from the name. Also, you can't really use "monarch" to mean "butterfly" when the design bears no more resemblance to a monarch butterfly than to any other butterfly - all monarch implies is, you know, the hereditary ruler. Altogether, these seem to have been put together with an utter lack of common sense.

    I think we should have had an extension for the submissions. It's almost unanimous that our name selection isn't that good...
