Destilum


Destiny+Equilibrium

Also, "Destilum" rolls off your tongue really nicely

Justiscalar


"Justiciar" + "scale"

Pronounced: juh-STIH-skah-LAHR

A justiciar is an administer of justice, and that word meshes with the scales that this mon resembles fairly well.
 
WIP

A portmanteau of Themis (goddess of justice), Moira (goddess of fate) and Turkic temir "iron"

Pronounced: THEE-meer
IPA: /ˈθiːmɪər/


In Modern Greek Μοίρα id pronounced [ˈmira], hence -mir; Μοίρα is aslo related to μόρος "fate, doom".
The term for "iron" varies a little in different Turkic languages: temir, demir, dəmir, темир, темір, демир

Judgmantle


A combination of “judge” (to weigh) and “mantle” (the earth’s layered core).

Also sounds like “judgmental” out loud, which is kind of what this design is all about!

WIP

Retriballast


Combination of “retribution” and “ballast” (a counterbalance).

Retribution because doom desire, and ballast due to it’s design being a scale.

WIP (2):

Magiscale

magistrate (or magic) + scale + majuscule

Pronounced: "MAA-jih-scale"
IPA: mæʤəskeɪl

ShunosaurusLii reminded me of the name in #flavor, and Roland gave positive feedback on it, so I thought it might be worth posting. ^^ I'm not completely convinced it's "mystical" enough a name for this design, but we'll see how feedback goes!

--

Some thoughts on other names:
  • Equilibra has a very nice rhythm to it, but it's kind of like blending "pronunciation" with "pronounce" in that the "librium" in "equilibrium" and "libra" come from the same Latin word. I don't think that's too big an issue, though, considering how targeted the name is towards the design.
  • Judgmantle is a fantastic portmanteau. My only concern about it is that "mantle" doesn't have much relation with the design itself besides being a Ground-type word.
  • Equitiuqe is so clever in what it does with being a name that's self-balanced. :D As mentioned on Discord, I think "Equitique" looks a lot cleaner, and the palindrome is still mostly there, since "qu" is pretty much one letter in English anyway. :P
  • Balantique sounds smooth and mystical. I like it. :)
Edit: More feedback:
  • lyd: According to Wikipedia, the name of Lady Justice in Latin is "Iustitia" or "Justitia", so "Juxtitia" comes across to me more as a corruption-style name rather than a portmanteau-style name.
  • Mr.Panda411, I think "Scalibra" would help parsing the name more, because otherwise "libra" isn't as clear to me.

Nemiscale


Combination of "Nemesis" + "Scale".

Pronounced: "Nem-I-scael"
IPA: [ˈnɛmɪskeɪl]

Nemesis is the Greek goddess of retribution, alluding to the revenge moves "Future is Bright" has been designed around and the scales of justice in this design as Nemesis inspired the modern, blindfolded "Lady Justice"

Progress: Possible corruptions?

Justruscale


Justice + Etruscan + Scale

Pronounced: "JUS-truh-scale"
IPA: dʒʌstʃrʌskeɪl

Inspiration was from Steph's description of his final design with the following references:
- Justice = Lady Justice/Scale of Justice concept
- Etruscan = Etruscan earthenware vessels concept
- Scale = Scale of Justice concept
 
WIP

Apocalibra


A portmanteau of "Apocalypse" + "Libra"

Prounounced: "Ah-pock-ah-lee-brah"
IPA: əˈpɒkə'liːbɹə

Apocalypse describes the doom it brings upon its opponents when using Doom Desire; Libra because it follows the concept of the scales of justice.
 
WIP

Taroterra


"Tarot" + "Terra"

Prounounced: "Tare-a-tare-a"

Tarot cards are used for fortune telling/seeing the future and "Terra" simply means earth.

Progress/Comments:

Definitely WIP, this is my first post so tell me if I did something wrong.

Currently seems kinda hard to pronounce.
 
WIP1

Goloombra


Combination of Golem, Doom, Looming and Libra

IPA: <goʊˈlʊmbrɑː>

Golem for the Clay Monster look, Libra for the scales of justice + connection to astrological readings, looming doom for the threat of impeding doom hanging over its enemies

WIP2

Doomsdale


Combination of doomsday and scale

IPA: <dʊmsˈsdeɪl>

Slightly different approach than above with more Focus on the Concept of Doom Desire
 
WIP 2

Calibwait



"Calibrate" + "libra" + "wait" + "weight"

Pronounced: "Kah-lee-bwayt"

IPA: <ˈkaliːbweɪt>
 
WIP

Propheterra

"Prophet" + "terra"

Prophet is someone who predicts the future, terra means Earth. Prophet relates to Doom Desire, terra relates to the ground typing.
 
WIP
Dreadwait

"
Dread, and wait"

Pronounced: Dred-wāt

The name is a play on the word dead weight, but I think the name shines because when cap 26 uses Doom Desire you "Dread" for DD to hit, but you have to "wait" to let it really do some damage.
 
WIP 2

Justiciara


"Justiciar" + "tiara"

Pronounced: juh-STIH-shee-AH-rah

A justiciar is an administer of justice, this mon vaguely looks like it has a tiara on its head, and the "-ara" name ending sounds somewhat feminine, evoking Lady Justice.
 
WIP

Lithemis


"Libra" + "Themis", Greek goddess of law, often depicted with scales. Also similar to "lithium", which is a metal, so it refers to Steel type.

Pronounced: LAI-thee-mis
IPA: [laɪθɪ:mis]
