Name for Black Rylak

#1 Unread post by Astratia » Mon Dec 14, 2015 12:57 am

I need a name for my black Rylak. He has been with me for a lot of adventures lately but I can't find a name for him. Most of my pets are named after mythological creatures, but I'm open to suggestions. Just nothing cutesy or too goofy.

Hm, the mention of mythology brought to mind cryptids, what about something like Chupacabra or Jersey (after the Jersey Devil)?

A couple of them came imediately to my mind:
  • JANUS: the roman god of beginning and end, depicted with two faces on one head.
  • KERBEROS: (Cerberos, Zerberus) the three-headed dog that guards the gates to the underworld in greek mythology. Three heads, though...
  • ORTHRUS: two headed dog from greek mythology, guarding Geryons cattle
  • AGNI: fire god of hinduism, depicted with two heads
  • NEHEBKAU: two headed snake from egyptian mythology
Maybe those are inspiring?

If you're looking for some... morbid names that bring fear but sound nice-ish here are some!

Ataxia (Dictionary Meaning: loss of coordination of the muscles, especially of the extremities.)

Creatures you say?

Wendigo - An evil spirit that possesses people and turns them into cannibals.
Jabberwock - I searched it up, I didn't know what it was and I still don't. It just popped up as a mythical creature.
Orthros - Two headed dog.
Typhon - The fire breathing giant that challenged Zeus for control over Mount Olympus. Also the father of most evil creatures.
Willowisp/Willo - Flame-like lights that beckon travellers to follow.
Bray - Bray Road Beast is a nickname for werewolves.
Sakyubasu - Succubus
Inkyubasu - Incubus (Male version of a Succubus)
Behemoth - I lacked to find information on this creature, I'm sorry but it's a large creature!
Bahamut - A great fish holding the earth.
Drekavac - A creature of the night/graveyard. It's forms are animals or a headless, slender baby that screams terrifyingly. (Less-creepy description, k?)
Ouroboros - The dragon that bites it's own tail, it means immortality or eternity. (My favorite because of FMA)

Hopefully you like those!
I'm likely to be using some of these names now that I look them over!
