Soaring Surf


English for, nearly literally, a very tall (and potentially still rising) wave.

Pronounced: as expected, or the usual English pronunciation

Unironically funny name that could fit would be Roaring Moon, but here’s this instead! It’s in the vein of past paradox Pokemon such as Flutter Mane, Walking Wake, etc. I also think it conveys very well the idea of a very fast wall (of water).

Shogunawa-e


Portmanteau of the words "Shogunate", "Kanagawa" and "Tokugawa", and "ukiyo-e" and "meisho-e". Also, "wa-e" sounds similar to "wave".

Pronounced: "show-guhn-nuh-WU-eh"
IPA: /ʃoʊˈɡʌnəˌwɑeɪ/

Undarumare


Inverted "Mare Undarum", latin for "sea of waves"; also the name of a lunar mare.

Pronounced: un-da-ru-MA-ray


A lunar mare is a plain on the moon formed by lava flow. They were perceived as seas by early astronomers, hence their name meaning "moon sea".

Katsunami


Katsushika Hokusai, the artist of the Great Wave + tsunami

Pronounced: "kaht-SOO-nah-me"

A name that combines two important elements behind CAP 33's flavor concept in a simple and elegant way.

Kabegawa


Kabe, Japanese for wall - based on concept and a tsunami being "a wall of water" - and Kanagawa, from "The Great Wave off Kanagawa.”

Pronounced: "kahh-bay-GAH-wuh"

I've always been a sucker for names ending in -wa.
