Hmm, I'm stumped trying to think of a good name for my new Scorpid pet.

Image

I'm hoping for something that highlights how wicked he looks...a suitably metal name I'd say.

Any ideas are welcome. :)

There's a scorpion-god in a book I once read called Chalava. Might work.

Selquit is an Egyptian goddess who took care of the dead and healed scorpion stings. She's viewed as a scorpion goddess.
Hededet is a lesser from that drew power from her.

You could also play with some scorpion type names...there are bizarre ones. My favorite name is the Chilean Chocolate scorpion....sounds so tasty, is so deadly. Haha.

I used to tame that on countless hunter alts, back before BC.

I always named him Nightmare. It just felt right to me.

What about Antaeus? The Greek word, Antaios, which lies behind his name means "set-against" or "hostile."
I named my old Scorpid Zinc, maybe it would fit your little guy too? Good luck finding him the right name!

Thanks so much for the ideas everyone!

Even though I dropped my Blood Elf in favor of a Troll, I still went and tamed the exact same Scorpid so naming it is still relevant. x3

I've got myself a list of possibilities that I think I like, now just to decide between them. ><

Havoc
Devil
Nemesis
Bloodfang
Dread
Grim or Grym
Apocalypse


I added a poll. :)

Lol, I asked myself that too but they sort of look like they have fangs, and I just mostly liked the sound of the name. xD

I voted "Grim or Grym."

But I think GrimClaw sounds good. Yeah, two words, meh. ;)

If you call him Apocolypse, you can nickname him Pocky. ;)

On my hunter the first pet i tamed was a scorpid, always my favorite pet, and i named Grimcaw. he's still my best pet, and still around today. i thought that was a good name for a scorpid. or a crab.
