Alien Personal Nomenclature

HELP. Help me out, people. Here’s the challenge: picture a cute little alien sock puppet. Give it a name. Not sure yet if this sock puppet is going to look more like a girl sock or a boy sock, so make sure the name is both cute and not obviously painting the sock into a corner in terms of being pink or blue. And: GO!

  1. I like Marzipan too… Also like Zerdle, but maybe consider mixing it with Freddie for Ferdle?

    I also am rather fond of Garmin, but that’s the name of a rather popular GPS thing… so maybe not.

    Am also thinking about the Friendlies from the Beijing Olympics – Beibei is the Fish, Jingjing is the Panda, Huanhuan is the Olympic Flame, Yingying is the Tibetan Antelope and Nini is the Swallow. I rather liked those names… and they were so adorable…
