I haven't shown her off yet because I'm STUCK on a name! She is my little Kelpie cryptid from RIley!
My husband suggested to name her Kelp/Kelpie but I already have a little one named Kelpie (because of her kelp/seaweed hair!)
So I picked up some name references from games I love of Sirines & Nymphs as I couldn't find a good Kelpie name!
These are the names as explanations:
Sil - Sil and here sirine friends guard a cave called Black Alaric's cave near a lighthouse. She has pretty light blue/green skin, silver hair. So she looks similar to my Kelpie and I loooove the three letter simplicity of Sil! & would match the silver bits in her hair!
Meiala - (said like me-ah-la) She was a sirine turned to stone that you can save turn back to flesh, but she may turn hostile on you. I love the sound of the name. It sounds very compelling like a melody a Kelpie could sing to attract you, plus Kelpie lure you to death just like this Sirine would.
Larriaz - (said like lar-ee-oz, lar as in lark) Larriaz reminds me of a lark or songbird that could also lure you. Larriaz is also a Sirine who was abducted by fisherman. She's mostly in greens with greenish hair and skin.
Cassiopeia - A nymph who is a good commander and other nymphs listen to her. The name means beautiful and she also has light blue skin and silver hair. If this were a first name, I love it, but I like nicknames and I don't like Cass/Cassie so maybe I'd have to go with Peia?
Feel free to leave comments and ideas too or what you voted for!
Meiala is my favorite first name of all of these! Cassiopeia and Sil are my other favorite names. I voted for Meiala Cassiopeia just because I like how it sounds together. Sil would be a cute nickname though, but I realize it isn’t really similar to the names I chose haha.
