    Well if Cyzir's is indeed the winner how about:
    Trimera

    An obvious pun of Chimera. Tri means three(and it is three headed). Tri is also present in the word eletric for all it is worth. As for why Chimera? Well in many cases 'Dragons' are chimera's of a sort. Chimeras(typically in fantasy) are creatures that are a mixture of various creatures and many dragons could probably fit that bill. In addition if memory serves weren't the Hydra, Cerberus and the Chimera in greek myth siblings(I could easily be wrong though)?

    sounds like "what a cloud", which works nicely with cyzirs art.

    Lol sounds like what-a-clod.

    I like MC50's idea of monzeun. It is catchy, relates to CAP8, and rolls off the tongue very nicely. Definitely getting my vote as of now, unless something better comes up.

    Earlier I was thinking of Cirrent, a combination of Cirrus and Current

    Edit: And on that note, Cirrpent could work =/ (Cirrus, Current, Serpent)

    Isn't it rather early to start polls? I mean we aren't even sure who won the art contest yet, correct?

    Indeed. In fact, I honestly don't really think it will actually begin tomorrow for sure, as we might STILL be waiting on the results. However, we still need to start compiling the names for the poll. If you believe one design will win, submit a name for that design. If the results turn out differently, simply edit your final submission post. That's all.
    EDIT: Edited my earlier post to reflect this post.
    EDIT2: Also please remember to bold your final submissions.

    Since I've seen a little support for it:

    Final Submission
    Cyclohm

    Cyclone, which is a storm, and Ohm, a unit of resistance which on an electric pokemon implies bulky. Or refers to it's 4x resist to electric.

    So, FINAL SUBMISSION:


    Ohmryu is logical, because Ohm is a unit of resistance, and the CAP 8 is a bulky, moreover Ohm to a report with electricity. Ryu is the japanese word for Dragon, simply. And it sounds great.


    Ohm + Ryu = Ohmryu

    Third time, my final submission is Atmosfere. The best part is it's not thunder word + dragon word, really.
