    I really like the idea from that one, just without the i at the end. Calimarr(gh?) just perfectly captures what this guy is about.

    Also, humbly suggesting Squidnarok (Squid + Ragnarok)
    I know it doesn't get the pirate theme, but it really rolls of the tongue, and it sounds badass :pirate:

    I think Cap'nKrook is by far the best of the possibilities as well.
    As for the poll, I think scarf darkie may have been tricked a Lagging Tail.

    I say stick to Cap'nKrook, like what Dclaw said, it's by far one of the better combination of names.

    Cap'nKrook sounds so contrived.

    Honestly, try using it as a plural. It sounds ridiculous.

    Mr. Mime barely works as it is, and Mr. doesn't even imply a hierarchical rank. You can't all be Cap'n. Someone has to be Gilligan and the Millionaire's Wife.

    Ex: "Swarms of Cap'nKrook gather on chidren's cereal boxes..."

    Arghonaut all the way.

    Throwing out support for Calimelee! I think it is purely awesome; it is simple and it does not seem complex.

    My submission: Squengage (Squid-Engage)
    It's not like some others, but it's nice to know i'm participating.

    I support Arghonaut because it sounds much more like a Pokemon (and a bad-ass one), than Cap'n Krook.

    Why not add and extra "r" to Arghonaut to drive home the pirate feeling? Arrghonaut is still within the 10-character limit.

    I think it's a bit much though, although Arrgonaut would pass in my book.

    While I agree Cap'nKrook is contrived, and I do like Arghonaut, all Pokemon plurals are the same as the singular. One Blissey, Two Blissey.
