    Helmi does sound girly... lol. It's hard to find manly jewel names.

    Kaia's dam is named Inari, after a village in Finland. I have no idea what Inari means in Finnish, but on the other side of the world Inari is also a Japanese god of foxes which is kind of awesome for a finkie. I've seen it used as a unisex name in Japan.

    OK so I have a couple more names, and still a few of the original ones in the running. I think we are keeping Chunker. Here's a picture for inspiration:

    [​IMG]

    Tukeva Kettu (means sturdy/chunky fox)
    Into (zest, zeal)
    Sonni (bull - I keep calling him a bull in a China shop)
    Ensio (first)
    Koru (jewel)

    TOO MANY OPTIONS.

    After seeing the picture, I think Into fits, taking the meaning into consideration. :) He's too adorable!

    I like Sonni!

    Is it pronounced "Sunny"? As a frequent gate person at trials, I hate names that aren't pronounced the way they look.

    Nope, it's pronounced like Sony :p

    You would hate Kimma then LOL. Everyone says Kim-ah, rather than the correct Kee-mah. Doesn't bug me, though :)

    lol If you didn't care and didn't say anything, I would be less bothered. It's the people with really out there names who act all offended when you pronounce it wrong.

    I still like Sonni :p

    Oh yeah, no. I would totally say it wrong if I were just reading it, so I would never be rude about it :)

    As long as I know when they're calling me, I'm good :D

    ^This lol.

    "Day-BU-yah?"

    *huffy* "No it's Dee-bu-YAY" *glare*

    Oh. Right. Sorry. My bad. How could I possibly have gotten that wrong?

    :p

    (It's about 50/50 whether the gate pronounces Mira's name MEER-ah or MY-rah. I don't bother correcting them unless they ask me which it is. I don't care lol.)

    And yeah of those I like Sonni best. Given you don't care if people butcher it lol.
