Hey all!

Now we have some adorable artwork for our prevos drawn by our wonderful Artists, let's get these prevos some names!




The above are our two designs! I'd like both names in one post please! They will however be in two different polls. Also I will allow Final Submissions from thread open! You may also have 3 WIPS per name!

If you are inspired by the winning art designs and have come up with a good and unique name you'd like the CAP to be known by, please submit your idea here and we will put it up for a vote against all other users' ideas. Final submissions must conform to the submission rules, so please read them carefully. Breaking the posting rules can also result in disqualification.

RULES:

Legal name submissions must meet the following standards
  • Names must start with a capital letter.
  • Names cannot be longer than 12 letters.
  • Names can only contain the following characters:
    • Letters A-Z
    • Numbers 1-9
    • Dash (-)
    • Apostrophe (')
    • Period (.)
    • Colon (:)
    • Space
  • No more than two capital letters can be included in the name, and capital letters cannot be consecutive.
  • A maximum of two non-letters can be included in the name, and a maximum of one non-letter of each type can be included (ie. You can't have two numbers, or two apostrophes, but you could have one number and one apostrophe)
Names will not be slated if they are completely unrelated to the design, silly names (puns are fine), names based primarily on memes, or names meant to inflame, intimidate, or cause controversy.

WIPs
Work In Progress (WIP) Names can be posted at any time for comments from the community.

No more than three WIP Names can be posted by any individual person through the entire course of the submission thread. This limit applies to ALL posts made by a single person, even if previous posts are edited or deleted. This limit is intended to curb the tendency for some submitters to spam the thread repeatedly with lists of Names. This detracts from other submissions and makes it difficult for commenters to survey the submission thread.

Do not bump your WIP names by posting them repeatedly, or making minor spelling changes of a letter or two. Bumping will result in the disqualification of all names by the offender. Editing or deleting bump posts will not prevent disqualification.

Final Submissions
Only ONE Final Submission can be made per person. Any Final Submission that does not follow the proper format will be disqualified.

Any Final Submission posted prior to the Moderator announcement post will disqualify the submitter from the poll entirely. Even if the offending post is edited later or deleted, the submitter will still be disqualified for the remainder of the thread. This ensures that there is some time for discussion and that all submitters have equal opportunity to post Final Submissions without anyone unfairly "jumping the gun".

Please make a new post after the CAP moderator announcement for Final Submissions. Do not edit a previous post prior to the announcement to make it a Final Submission. All posts prior to the announcement post will be ignored for purposes of making the Name Poll.

Final submissions must provide one sentence (25 words maximum) explaining the etymology of the name.

Final submissions must provide a common English pronunciation. The common pronunciation can be made in whatever format you feel best conveys the pronunciation to most English speakers. (You may optionally also provide an IPA pronunciation. For information about IPA and processing words into IPA read this guide: IPA For English. There are also numerous phonetic translation tools online that can help.)

Format
Name Final Submissions must be posted exactly in the following format and in the following exact order:
  • The first line of the post must have the words "Final Submission" in bold on its own line. No other text may be included before the bold heading.
  • A blank line
  • The Name submission in bold.
  • A blank line
  • A one line description of the etymology of the name or why it is appropriate for our Pokemon. (25 words maximum)
  • A blank line
  • "Pronounced: <common English pronunciation>"
  • "IPA: <IPA pronunciation>" (optional)
Below the Final Submission you can post other comments, explanations, etc.

Example final submission:
Final Submission

Syclant


A combination of "Icicle" + "Ant".

Pronounced: "SICKLE-ant"
IPA: sɪkəlænt

This name was originally submitted by Lawman on the very first CAP project. It is simple, elegant, and easy to pronounce (even if you are pronouncing it wrong), which is why it was chosen as the official name for CAP1!
Our cap Prevo so far:

Type: Water -> Water/Bug -> Water/Bug
Ability: Torrent/Poison Heal ->Torrent/Poison Heal ->Torrent/Poison Heal
Evolves via: Level Up at 17 & 34
BASE: 61 HP / 49 Atk / 70 Def / 50 SpA / 62 SpD / 28 Spe BST: 320

Final Submission

Currenteeny


A combination of "Current" + "Teeny"

Pronounced: Current-eeny
IPA: ˌkɜrənˈtini


Eddylescent

A combination of "Eddy" + "Adolescent"

Pronounced: Eddy-less-ent
IPA: ˌɛdiˈlɛsənt

I wanted to play on how first stages often just indicate size/age and middle stages often have an "attitude." The "water-y" words in both build up from a current to an eddy, and eventually a maelstrom.
 
Final Submission

Corine


Combination of "coral" and "marine"

Pronounced: cor-een

Seaheirrent


Combination of "sea", "heir", and "current". Also implies "sea hare".

Pronounced: see-air-rent
 
Final Submission

Swashell


From "Swash," the sound or rush of water of a wave breaking on the shore, and "Shell"

Pronounced: SWAH - shell

Mollusquall

From "Mollusca," the phylum that includes sea snails, and "Squall," a sudden storm

Pronounced: MAHL - us - KWALL

I wanted to keep the theme of shell + storm from Snaelstrom, hence 'shell' and 'Mollusca,' but also wanted to indicate rising power of the storm itself. As such, we have a swash of waves turning into a squall and then a full out maelstrom!

Prinsea


From Prince/Princess, and Sea. Also similar to Prissy

Pronounced: PRIHN-see


Naudibra

From Nautical and Nudibranch

Pronounced: naw-dee-braw

No real connections to the actual mons. Just thought these flowed off the tongue well, similar to snaelstrom
 
Final Submission

Swirlpool


A combination of swirl and whirlpool. This was inspired by its swirly hairdo, and the fact that Snaelstrom refers to a whirlpool too.

Pronounced: Swerl-pool

Coribalis

A combination of coral, charybdis and chrysalis. This was inspired by its new coral butterfly wings. Charybdis is also a whirlpool.

Pronounced: Caw-rib-ah-liss

Ubertrainer2000, I think "tornado" is too windy a word for a Water/Bug type.

Corlpool

Other Thoughts:
These names follow the pattern set by Snaelstrom, combining the name of the animal each CAP resembles with a term related to the movement of water (or, in Poolyp's case, the absence of movement). These latter terms are chosen to give a sense of progression to the evolutionary line's names: strengthening currents in a relatively still body of water spawn a whirlpool, which intensifies to become a maelstrom.

Hey all!

I'm posting how to give you guys a rough 24 hour heads up!

I am going to make an assumption that the first name is for stage one and the second stage is for stage 2. If this is wrong, please make your post clear! Name polls are also going to work slightly different this time around, with us running both stages non-concurrently. This means that we will be deciding on the Stage 1 names first, THEN the stage 2 names. This should give us a little more control/preference in how the names are coming out.
