So, I tamed one of these guys.....

Image

It wasn't a planned tame at all. As I was making my frantic escape from UC after snatching the Lament of the Highborne music roll on Rhyela, I happened to fly over Hibernus. I saw his dot on my map, looked down out of curiosity, checked to see if I had space, and tamed him. I don't generally like WoW's bears, and I've never liked the diseased pets (any of them). However, for some reason, this guy kinda grew on me. I tried to name him Purgatory, but that name was reserved. Soooo, I'm stumped.

I think I'm trying to think of zombie-like names, but other possibilities are things that are redeemed (saving the bear from his fate), pain (since he looks to be in pretty bad shape), or other things of that nature. Some I've thought of, but haven't been able to settle on, are:

Chance
Blight
Plague
Zombear
Famine
Ravage
Hunger

Just to give some ideas of what I'm looking for. Any help at all is appreciated. Oh, names can be other languages, too. I just haven't gotten that far yet. ;) Thanks in advance!

Ahh, I love the zombears! ♥ Even though the models are dated I find they have a lot of personality and charm, then again I might just have odd tastes. x) Grudge has been with me since BC days~

I thought of a few gross names that I think are oddly adorable. :lol:

Gehenna
Pestilence
Blister
Itchy
Gripe
Hazard
Pest
Maggot (I thought it could be cute;;)
Wretch
Grief
Molder
Fester
Nergal or Namtar (both different Mesopotamian gods of death and disease)

Well, it's down to Ravage, Namtar and Itchy. I'm trying to take him out and use him to see what his personality is like. So far, he seems pretty brutal and fearless. :) Thus, I think Ravage and Namtar are the best, but Itchy is so cute!

I ended up coming up with a different name altogether, Dirge. Here are the definitions:

1: a song or hymn of grief or lamentation; especially one intended to accompany funeral or memorial rites
2: a slow, solemn, and mournful piece of music

I feel it's poetic and still appropriate. ^.^

Thank you so much for your suggestions! :hug: I'd like to use some of these on other pets, though perhaps on an alt since I'm almost out of stable space on Rhyela. :lol:
