Name the Tribble

(note to Mods/Admins: This concerns Tribbles in general, but at the same time it's news, a kind of game and kinda freaky fan-stuff. Hence I thought it'd best fit into Misc. Feel free to move it, if you find a better place for it)


Years ago, the American Heritage Center in Wyoming got presented with a lot of stuff from the Star Trek series.
Recently, one of their employees, who happens to be a Trekkie, re-discovered the items. Among them is a Tribble, donated by Forrest J Ackerman, for which the archive now is seeking a name.
The name ought to express the typical nature of a tribble.

Entries can be emailed to ahc(at)uwyo.edu, with "Tribble
Contest" and your name in the subject line. They also can be posted at the center's Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/UWAHC
The deadline for entries is Oct. 22nd

Re: Name the Tribble

If I had a bunch of tribbles I'd give them all Klingon names.

The MIGHTY KOR!!

:: shakes small furry ball in your face ::

And then I'd mash two of them together into cleavage and call them Lursa and B'Etor.

Re: Name the Tribble

But Kor's a boy's name! Tribbles are born pregnant, so surely they need to be female names?

Korina?

Korette?

Re: Name the Tribble

Grilka is indeed a worthy name for a tribble. Azetbur is also acceptable.

Re: Name the Tribble

While I like the following names and think they'd be great, I don't think others will agree: Stormageddon or Fred.

More appropriate(?): Crazzal, Gerish, Frim, Sotzie.

Fred is always a good name. Especially for tribbles.

Re: Name the Tribble

Unkempt hairy appearance, bearing an irresistible charm as seen by the general public, regarded as a joke by peers, getting into all sorts of mischief that only endears him further, undermining the authority of the people in charge, and with a penchant for procreative affairs (allegedly)... why, the only suitable name has to be Boris.
