Joyant

"Joy" + "Buoyant"

Pronounced: "joy-ant"

Regardless of how it looks at first glance, I wanted a name that was more than one word + another word. While doing research, i discovered that in pre Columbian America, snails were considered a symbol of joy. They are also seen as a symbol of enjoying life at a slower pace. This seemed fitting as 25w seems to always have a joyful disposition about itself.

Next, I looked for synonyms of joy as I wasn't sold on the word at the time. I ended up at the phrase joie de vivre hoping to incorporate some French element because "snails." I then noticed that buoyancy was a synonym of joyful. It was nice because it incorporated a "water" word but maintained a connection with the original.

Buoyant -
1. able or apt to stay afloat or rise to the top of a liquid or gas
2. cheerful and optimistic

I originally tried Joyancy as a name but It sounded too much like Chansey. I ended up with going with Joyant instead. I also avoided spelling it "Juoy" to avoid the Ju since Jumbao was last CAP.
