Need a name for your shiny new 'ship and can't think of a good one for yourself? Well, you came to the right place.

This is a sort of a gathering hub, I suppose. Anyone is free to ask for help, and anyone is free to make a suggestion to help that person. Take and give is a good motto; do onto others and you would want them to do onto you, is another. If you want help, it would be equally nice if you could help someone in the future. Someone gave you their time, so the right thing to do is to give someone else yours.

Otherwise, it doesn't work, and /I'm/ the one left to help. =( And I can't think of everything.

....Ignore the poll. It's long finished.


Tips for making suggestions:
-Before making a suggestion, be sure it's not already named. Meaning, please check here first: Neverending Romance | Incomplete Nightmare

-When making suggestions, also have the couple somewhere in your own post. That way, when /you/ are quoted, the couple you're naming is apparent to any non-involved readers.

-Please quote who you're responding to. That will notify the asker that someone had made an inquiry, instead of simply posting beneath. It also helps maintain exactly who you're suggesting for, in case you believe you're posting to someone and your post winds up beneath someone else's.

-Don't say "I would suggest, but I suck." You've no idea how badly good namers started, nor do you know if the names you can think of wouldn't be positively received. Trying is the best solution to every task.

-If a name you're suggesting doesn't seem like it would make sense on the surface, do try to explain your reasonings. It might be the reason that will get that specific name chosen.


Tips for askers:
-If you get suggestions, you can always say 'no' to any that are made for your pairing.

-If you do not get suggestions, and your pairing is now a page or two back, you are perfectly welcome to bring your pairing up again.

-When you /do/ pick a name, please quote and post that /that/ is the name you're choosing. This helps tell others that you have chosen and no other names should be offered to the pairing.

And that's not cool.

I was going to open this thread only to ask what to call Ash's Bulbasaur and May's Venusaur (nope, it's not the same thing as Vineshipping, thank you)
Ash's Bulbasaur/May's Venusaur

I have an idea. How about YouInspiredMeToGrow shipping. Speaking from the POV of May's Venusaur (before it evolved), Ash's Bulbasaur gave it a lot of support and encouragement in the times they spent together, and it may have contributed to her overall confidence when it came time for her to evolve while over in Johto with May.

I need help deciding what to call Ash's Pidgeot/Fearow (the Fearow in question is the one in the anime that attacked Ash and Pidgeot battled.) I thought about BirdsOfPreyshipping (since they're pretty much based on such birds.) but I would like to hear any other suggestions.

Wally/Nurse Joy

UPDATE: I have found a suitable title: SeeYouAgainAndAgainAndAgainShipping.
A nod both to Joy's catchphrase and Wally's health.

Ash's Pikachu/ May's Glaceon

IronTailShipping seems nice =\ As they both can use Iron tail...And they're the only members of May's and Ash's team that could use it.

Pikachu/Glaceon

WeatherBallet, IceCapades, ElectricSlide...

-ElectricSlide after the dance, and because you slide across ice.

-IceCapades because Pikachu likes to dance.

-WeatherBallet because hail and lightning go with storms, and again with the dance theme.

Hmm, try here for that: http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/showthread.php?t=49181

Already Chirushipping.

Eusine/Thorton

Me being twisted, I'd suggest Ralphieshipping (Christmas story: Eusine is Ralphie in regards to Suicune, and Thorton /would/ tell him, "It'll shoot your eye out.") or Harangueshipping (Eusine is a ranter of this magnitude, and Thorton probably does harangue as well).


o.o Hey, you ever name Clark/Dominic?

I may or may not need a little bit of assistance coming up with a good replacement name for Dario/Damian XD; I mean, I was thinking of Carnalshipping, but...*shrug* if you have anything that might fit better...;;
