Name That Pet: Sentrakh’s Coilfang Ray

Final Name: Himantura

Sentrakh, a troll hunter from the Crushridge realm, is looking for name suggestions for his Coilfang Ray. Sentrakh writes:

Ever since I first saw a Nether Ray, I’ve loved how unique they look, and always wanted one despite the fact that most of them have caster stats. Luckily, the only model that doesn’t is also my favorite :) .

I’d prefer something scientific for a name, but anything serious would be good. For example, some of Sentrakh’s previous pets were: Cristatus, a teal tallstrider (name originates from Pavo cristatus, the Indian Peacock); Deinonychus, a green raptor (name from the species of raptor called Deinonychus); and Archelon, a green turtle (Archelon was a species of prehistoric giant turtle).

That’s a tall order, but I’m sure we can think of something!

    lol, not copying Irwinn, but i was thinkin Crikey or maybe something like Jellyfish, or the scientific version of it, or Stingray

  2. Yossir

    Birostris (from Manta birostris aka manta ray)
    Dipturus (from Dipturus laevis aka Barndoor skate)
    Amblyraja (from Amblyraja badia aka board skate)
    Dasyatidae (the name for a genus)
    Himantura (another genus)
    Urogymnus (another genus) or
    Taeniura (another genus)

    I’m gonna have to throw “Paramecia” out there. It kinda looks like certain types of Phaeodaria or Spyroidea.

    I just looked up some Protozoa and looked at the sub-types.

    …i feel as i should mention…

    i’m not just being a jerk. i actually do have a hunter named Irwinn on boulderfist and Steve Irwin was a national treasure for Australia… but even he would joke about how he came to his unfortunate death.

    CRIKEY… why so serious? the people who created chars on boulderfist to call me an ass are taking it too far.

    This isn’t really what you were looking for, but I suggest:

    Azul
    Luna
    Oceanrose
    and Searobin.

    I LOVE nether rays and spore bats, but my hunter, unfortunatly, isn’t high enough level to tame one yet. :(
    Good luck naming this beauty!! ^_^

  8. Magnakilro

    I’ll agree with Niabi’s suggestion of Trygon.

    off topic: Hey mania, I was thinking, shouldn’t the coilfang and fen rays be placed in unique pets or pets with special behaviors lists since those two are the only ones without caster stats? just a thought lols

    Bubba, I don’t think anyone here was trying to be seriously disrespectful. But I appreciate your sentiment amd your desire to stand up for a great man.

    Sentrakh: Beautiful choice!
