Smile I need a name

Name contest!
I got a new calico ryukin today and I need a name for it. Although I'm not an expert, we are fairly sure that it is a girl, so if anybody has any suggestions for a cool, unique name for her, we would much appreciate it!

Welcome to the goldfish arena!

I'd certainly love to see photos of your new fish. There is no certain way to tell their sexes except when they begin to show breeding signs such as tubercles on the gill covers for males and noticeably rounder body in females.

Here's a list of my own goldfish's names:
Watonai-Felix
Fantail-Alessandra
Tikus Pearlscales (RIP)-Puff, Bubbles
Ranchu-Loco
Lionhead-Julian
Comet-Starla
Shubunkin-Mirage
Ryukins-Satine, Teddy, Dev, Sancho
Orandas-Summers, Velvet, Moby

Dig my previous threads for their pictures or click the signature Flickr.

Why not name your new goldfish Galatea if female?
