    Quetzacapl ~ Quetzalcoatl & Apple

    It's been a while since we've had a horrifically constructed and contracted pokemon name. Oh, the days of Victreebel~

    I agree, but I thought it would sound a little feminine. Temptriss is better name, though, and I'd be interested to hear more feedback.



    My other WIP is Pommepous or Pompython. Both stem from "pomme" which is French for apple. The first one is "pomme" and "pompous" and the second is "pomme" and "python". Thoughts?

    EDIT: shortened one name

    well, 'pommepython' is too long, but 'pommepous' sounds like an awesome pun. sounds a little odd, though, like we're referring to a cat pokemon.

    Toying with a few ideas:-

    Envallper

    Env-all-per
    En -
    start of envenom, a well known thinsg snakes do
    All - from the word allure
    Per - Ending from the word Viper

    Pronounced: N-Vall-per

    This one I like as it plays also on the word Envelop which is what the appearance and smell of the fruit does to it's victims senses.

    Snitice

    Sni-tice
    Sni - derived from the word Snicker (normally associated with stifling a laugh, a well known thing to do when leading some astray)
    tice - last part of the word Entice (another word for allure)

    Pronounced: Sni-tis

    This is one which fits the design and background, as well as his pose perfectly. From Eden to alluring helpless Pokemon ready to strike at them it does this with malicious intent and has to stifle his laughter as to not give away his presence.

    Well, since nobody responded to Ophiden, let's try another one: Pychthon (PIKE-thon).

    This one comes from python + chthonic (a word used to describe underworld gods). There are a lot of "python" names already, but I thought this one was good enough to share.

    Other names I like: Mallure, Malaconda, Temptail, and Taboa. I'd be reasonably happy with any of those.

    Addlure is definitely my favorite so far, and I'd stick with it. Rattlure might start flavor arguments about the apple being capable of being a rattle...

    With the departure of my last idea, let's go with a new one, shall we?

    Nedevyl
    NHEED - e - vhi - ell

    "Eden" spelled backwards, then "Vile," misspelled to make it cooler. It rolls off the tongue, I think. Like, "need a vial?" Yeah, kinda like that. It's also attractive for the eyes, IMO, but that's just me.

    Deceptile

    Kinda simple, combination of deception and reptile, being a snake, and based off of the evil snake in the Bible.

    Pronunciation: Dee-sep-tile

    A serious submission to counterbalance my joking one.

    Pestilance
    PES-till-lans
    Pestilence + Fer-De-Lance

    Pestilence can either be a great plague or endemic, which makes no sense according to the art, or an agent of evil, which makes perfect sense. Fer-De-Lance is the species of snake I used as the anatomical model. I like it because its punny :B

    I was wondering about a name like Surpitude . . . but didn't know if enough people would know what turpitude meant to get the pun in the name.

    (moral turpitude is the name for behaving in a dishonest, unjust and generally immoral way). And Serpent + Turpitude makes Surpitude.

    I've decided I really don't like my first work in progress because it sounds too much ike the word "hideous" which doesn't make sense for our CAP. so... what do you guys think?

    Surpitude
    Tantaliez or
    Tantalivy

    which has the best shot at winning?

    I have some suggestions:

    Malucifer
    Ma-LU-ci-fer
    From malus, latin for apple and evil; and Lucifer, the one that offered Eve the fruit from the forbidden tree

    Erisnake
    ER-ris-nay-ke
    From Eris, the greek goddess of chaos; and snake

    Boitatan
    BOY (the O as in Rose)-ta-tan
    From Boitatá, a legendary snake in brazilian folklore; and Satan

    Reposting Applesnake from page 1... never really got any response. Evokes Rattlesnake, also obviously is Apple + Snake.

    Also adding to the mix: Corruptile. Corrupt, which the Biblical serpent did, and Reptile, which snakes are.

    It just looks stupid.

    You could have "Rapplesnake" if it didn't go over the limit :/ corrupted to "Rapplsnake", even.

    Maliss


    Malice/Malus + Hiss

    Snakes are malicious in the holy bible. We wanted a Dark-type. Malice.

    Hiss is that sound snakes usually make.
    Mix it together. Boom.
    Maliss.

    Kalhissti

    Kallisti + Hiss

    Pronounced: "Kuhl-hiss-tee"
    IPA: kʉlhɪstiː

    Kallisti is another name for the Apple of Discord. It roughly translates to 'For the Fairest.' A hiss is obviously the sound a snake makes.

    Risqwirm


    A simple mix: Risk (Risque?) + Squirm + Wyrm

    Pronounced: ris-KWIRM
    IPA: [risk'wirm]

    Wyrm is the Old English word for snake, and a modern synonym for [European] dragon. It's related to worm as well.
    I'm not sure about the spelling, any suggestions would be welcome.

    Changed the spelling, updated the English pronunciation.

    Taboa

    "Taboo"+ "Boa"

    Pronounced: "ta-BO-a"
    IPA: təboʊə

    Taboo comes from the forbidden fruit, boa comes from the fact that it's a snake. I like this because it's simple and easy to say. It's also pretty obvious at first glance what the name means.

    Lucifruit

    A portmanteau of Lucifer+Fruit, it's pretty silly but relays the mischievous nature of the mon quite well.

    Pronounced: LU-ci-fruit
    IPA: [lu/sə/frut]

    I personally harbor a lot of love for several other entries in this thread, though, especially Envyper.

    Malucifer

    A combination of "Malus" and "Lucifer"

    Pronounced: ma-LU-ci-fer
    IPA: [malusifer]

    Malus is latin for both apple and evil, and Lucifer is the one that gave the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
