Pretty Panthera Needs a Name

Unread post by Astratia » Sun Jan 21, 2018 10:22 pm


My New Kitty needs a name :)

Currently, no personality development, so I'm open to most names. Maybe something that emphasis his (oh yes, it's a him :) ) luminescent markings?

I usually lean towards names that have meanings behind them, and nothing too long.
Some Examples are:
Deimos - Devilsaur
Claydon - Boar
Seraph - Blue Spirit Tiger
Testudo - Turtle

Well, if he has a devilish personality, you can call him Lucifer. Its literal meaning is "shining one" or "dawn bringer". Also, interestingly enough, bioluminecent compounds are called luciferins.

I've named all of my panthera after gemstones. Alexandrite, Azurite, Beryl, Carnelian, Larimar, and Topaz are the ones I chose. There are so many pretty stones out there, why not utilize the names? :)
