Where do any common names come from?

Interesting question though because as you stated they are about as aggresive as daisy, and certainly don't look like any pitbull i have seen.

With plecos some of the common names make sense straight away, e.g.

zebra pleco
green phantom
bristlenose etc

but some make no sense at all, weird aint i?!?! :?

i mean where the heck did they get Shampupa Pleco from?? always makes me laugh that one
