In Soul Silver I got into a habit of using short punchy names for my pokemon...except I realize that my Leafeon came out of a special trade so it's name was stuck as Evelyn. But I like it still.
In Black I have two Leafeon, Fiernae for the DW and Clover for battling.
Fiernae is something I made up to be derivative of Fern.
Clover is meant to combo with DW Vulpix which I plan to name Crimson. A cookie to anyone who gets the reference X3
Do any of you guys use special nicknames?
I use Mosspelt for my main leafeon.
You know, after warriors. XD
I actually dig Evelyn and Clover, and Mosspelt's nice too.
My personal favorite name is Autumn for a female Leafeon. It isn't overtly original but I find it fitting.
I named mine Mosspelt too! And also LichenLeaf... hence my name ;) I always had trouble thinking of male names, though. I have a male named Jack, for lack of better options.
Let's see I have 3 Leafeons now:
-My 1st one I ever got is named Ivy
-My second one is named Wonder cause the leaf on their heads reminded me of a question mark so I wanted a name dealing with curiosity
-My last one and only male one is Leif
I named mine Soy Verde which translates to Im Green
Verdant if a male, Leafia if a female.
