Final name for Phytor: Mungulu
I’ve gotten a bunch of submissions from hunters looking for help naming their pet, and I think the last one went very well. So for the moment, let’s keep this up!
Actually, this time I am going to double up a bit to maximize the leverage of our talent potential (and other management-speak). Today we have not one, but two white gorillas!
The first is from a hunter named Ryno:
Ryno here. I have this awesome white ape for my defensive pet, and I don’t know what to name him.
RP wise, Ryno’s a bloodthirsty fellow who’s always got a plan. It may be risky (read: reckless, crazy, dangerous, etc.), but it’s still a plan. What Ryno needs for this gorilla is a name to strike fear into his enemies. He has a ravager named Gorgon. Maybe that’ll help.
And here’s Ryno with his ape:
The second submission comes from Phytor, a Blood Elf hunter from Argent Dawn (EU):
Phytor is a lone elf that has a touch with nature, especially animals thus he became a hunter and a somewhat loner. Expelled from his friends and family he went out into the World to find his destiny and goal. When he stumbled across this particular Gorilla for the first time he felt a connection, somewhat like when you feel a twinge of pain. He had to tame this beast. But unfortunately he was clearly no match for it at the time, and with great horror he saw it get ruthlessly killed by a druid and a warlock. Phytor tried to stop them but it was already to late, the beast was critically wounded and lost its place in this world. In great sadness Pythor decided to spend his time to mourn and keep the memory of it sanctified.
Then one day when he came to after a long dreamless sleep, as usually since that night, he gazed at the gorilla again. But could it really be? He tried to clear his vision in order to see better. This beast looked much the same but somewhat larger buffed, slightly more masculine. So Phytor, clear awoken as he was now, lured it towards him and started the ritual needed for a bond this size. After several minutes of struggling Phytor gained the knowledge that this monkey was the other one’s older brother. When he finally gained its trust and explained that it wasn’t he who killed his brother, he gladly accepted to be his friend in dangerous times that shall come.
And here is Phytor with his gorilla:
Let the naming begin! Oh, and please make it clear in your comments which ape you’re naming, or if your suggestion applies to either.
Incidentally, if you sent me a submission and I haven’t responded to you yet, I apologize. I’m way behind on e-mail (and everything else!). If you name your pet before I get to you, please let me know. Otherwise, I promise I’ll respond eventually. *grin*
Update: Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone! Phytor let me know that he went with Mungulu (as you can see here). And Ryno let me know how much he appreciated all the suggestions, although he hasn’t let me know what name he chose yet.
