Name That Cu!

Discussion in 'UO Tamer' started by Connor_Graham, May 23, 2009.

  1. I've had my latest Cu Sidhe for a few weeks now, and for the life of me I can't come up with a name that I'm happy with. The best I've been able to come up with so far is Bonnie Blue Biter. Bonnie because Cu's are Scottish, Blue..well...because it's blue, and Biter because that's what they do.

    I'd like some help from the more creative people here, and am willing to offer 250k (on Pacific) to the person who comes up with a name that I actually like.

    I will give one tip- It would be great to come up with a name that I can transfer to any Cu, as the one I have now is only so-so, and will eventually be replaced at some time.

    Good luck and thanks!

    Cu Connor (The Hound of Connor!)
     
  13. Actually, that would be "Cu Kaetlynn", as Kaetlynn Graham is my tamer.

    Not really seeing anything that's catching my eye so far. Some of the names are too "commercial", if that makes sense, and others getting into the vulgar range, which I won't go for. Kaetlynn is a goody two shoes. Then there are some I just don't get at all...

    I really wanted Bonnie Butt Biter to begin with but the naming filter won't let me. Damn communists....:D

    Keep the names coming though! I see a couple of maybe's, just nothing that jumps out at me yet.

    Aye... some of the names the filter rules out seem a little silly to me... I can't even name my ferret "Leg Humper". (ever seen how the ferret's walk?)

    Alejandro...
     
  17. To give you guys some idea as to what I'm looking for, here are the names of some of my other pets, hopefully this will head things in the right direction:

    GD- Draconic Anarchy (I just love this one!)
    Rune Beetle- Toku Black Death
    Hiryu (red, white & blue)- Spirit
    Dread War Horse- A Dread Nightmare
    Nightmare- Dark Honor
    Pack Llama- The Dolly Llama

    I've also got an albino squirrel that I freed from it's crystal that I haven't been able to come up with a name for yet. Bonus to anyone that can name this one too!

    Forget Me Not - They are a pretty blue flower


    I'd name the squirrel Paintbrush for the squirel hair paint brushes they sell. I had one named Quill on my scribe for the longest time. It looks like you could just pick it up and dip that tail in ink to use it.


    Just tossing in a suggestion. I've had a hard time myself naming pets of late. I have a dragon with the horrible name of Buffalo Chicken Wings that I'm still trying to decide on a real name for. (ok I've had it well over 6 months now with that name. I can't think of names well anymore)

    Bob. When all other names feel like they lack something, go with Bob.

    I have 3 fallbacks for naming pets.

    Firstly, main tamer has pets named after virtues and as you've got a Spirit and Honor, that might suit you too.

    Second, you could pick a language you like the sound of and find a name in there. I use celtic languages quite a lot and sometimes I tweak names a little. My first cu was Feolan, kits Cadno and Sionnaich and my pack Delbaeth, Fianna, Danu, Midhir and Briga.

    Or third fallback is the random name generators. Not sure if it's still going, but Seventh Sanctum rings a bell.

    Fang Fuzzybottom

    Puppy Power

    Blue Bonnet

    My cu are named Snarl Everwind (after a famous pirate on Napa) and Longtooth (after a fictional comic book wolf)
    My kits are named Flotsam and Jetsam (after... well... nevermind)
    My dragons are Blood Stone and a jabberwocky (a guildmate named hers "a frumious bandersnatch" and I had to go with the theme).

    If you don't take Fuzzybottom, I'll have to use it myself.
     
  26. There have been some good suggestions.

    So far I'm leaning toward either Scooby Dooby Cu or Canine Justice, from suggestions from GFY and Wenchkin. I'll give it a few more days to see if anyone can come up with anything I like better, then make a final decision.

    I'm also thinking of Snowball From Hell for my squirrel, if the commie naming convention will allow me to.

    Be funny to see a PVPer die to a 'I love Cu'

    Name it "a greater chicken" or "a cat"
     
  29. Why? I'd think the Cu would be insulted if I tried to name it 'a cat'. He might turn around and bite me.

    For the Squirrel:

    - Bleached Fury
    - Secret

    For the Cu:

    - a nice doggie
    - Go Fetch
    - the Real Blue's Cu (sorry, I've got little kids)
    - a pound puppy (if you are 80s nostalgic)
    - Gmork (you probably can guess where this one is from)
    - Blue Light Special (or Blue Light Cu)
    - McGruff the Crime Cu

    Not sure if you like any of those... but I'd start a char on Pac if I had some initial gold. :) Good luck naming your new pets.

  35. I can see there are going to be a lot of Blue Suede Cus (Koos) running around after that one. I love it.

    As you can see, my stratics name itself is a dog.
    Orthus was Cerberus' whelp-mate, but only had two heads.
    I like mythological names, so my favorite cu is Surma, the Finnish hell-dog that guards the entrance to the underworld.
    When all else fails, try this link:

    Of course you could always go with Norwegian Blue, but it'd spend all its time pining for the fiords...
     
  39. Ok, a little twist on things...

    I was recently given a plain jane Cu that's better than the blue one, so will be using that one instead, so some of these names won't work now. The blue I'll work to 5x GM and sell, so I won't have it very long.

    How's "Healer of Death" or "Death Healer"?
    Just replacing "Dealer" with "Healer" for the Cu's special skill...

    "Autolykos" (Ow-taw-loo-kaws)is ancient Greek, roughly translates as Master Wolf though you could translate it with any synonym for master such as chief or leader or whatever you prefer.

    *edit: if your Cu is female it would be "Autolyke" (Ow-taw-loo-kay)

  43. Lol, I never was much for Simon & Garfunkel. I'm still leaning toward either Scooby Dooby Cu or Canine Justice. I'll make a decision between the 2 (or maybe use both for a while) by Wednesday if nothing better comes up before then.

    I'm also still leaning toward Snowball from Hell for the squirrel. Sorry, but I haven't seen anything I like better yet.

    Keep the suggestions coming!

    My pets are all 'music'. My Cu is Ceilidh - to keep both the music theme and the gaelic connection. My blue frenzied is 'Rhapsody' You'll need to have some knowledge of Gerswin to get that one I suppose.

    To give someone 'the blues', you'd make them sad, mournful, despondent?

    I'll suggest Mournful Blue or Blue Mourning as a name.
     
  45. You might have missed the post in which I'd said that I was given a new Cu that was better than the blue one, so will end up selling the blue off as soon as I get it trained up to 5x GM. I've now got a plain one that I'll use until I can find a better one, so what I'm really looking for is something that can carry over from Cu to Cu.

  48. I'm still deciding between Scoobie Doobie Cu and Canine Justice, but it's time to call an end to this contest. These 2 names are from derivatives of names from GFY and Wenchkin, so if they will contact me by PM, I'll make arrangements to meet them and give each a check for 250k. Additionally, I'd also like to give a special recognition award to Sarsmi for "Blue Suede Cu" of another check for 250k, as if I do end up finding a really good blue Cu, I will use that name for it.

    Thanks all for your suggestions and congratulations to the winners!
