IIRC, the general trend (or is it international reg?) is for moons of Neptune to be named after sea gods, etc. Any suggestions out there?

How about stepping away from European/Mediterranean mythology and calling it Tangaroa after the figure in Maori mythology? Enough of the Greeks and Romans, already.

Wiki link for the curious: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tangaroa

Oh, and a "funny" answer I tried to resist, but am typing here anyway: Zissou.
