Those names are like naming a dog "Spot" or "Fido".

 

Fluffy adheres to Spiderweb tradition, but I'm slightly disappointed.

 

I considered suggesting "Mr. Peanut", but decided "Fluffy" was both a solid nod to Spidweb tradition and a bit of a joke that a non-Spiderwebber would appreciate. (Since I assume the turtle in question is not, in fact, fluffy. If it appears fluffy, please adjust your implants.)

Well, A'tuin is better than B'tuin, because, well, A is before B in the alphabet. A-list celebrities, for example, are considered better than B-list celebrities, and so B'tuin would be a less good A;tuin.

 

Alorael's joke was a pun; very simply, he was saying that 'Fluffy' and 'Tank' are not names you want to be choosing between - and that the right choice, B'tuin, sounds like 'between'.

 

And now I hate myself for having to explain that.

Not sure that I got the joke. :/ Still, the idea of a turtle as big as a star and holds up an entire world blows my mind :) .

The idea of a turtle holding up the world is somewhat common in mythology.

In fairness, it's a really, really awful pun. (Or maybe Dikiyoba pronounces A'Tuin and therefore B'Tuin differently than the rest of you: Ah-two-in.)

You should name it Alorael. Then when people in real life ask why that name, just say it's an "inside" joke. (get it cus its a turt...nvm)

 

—Vexivero, who still thinks Alorael would be a fitting name for the turtle. Dqwon would also be an acceptable alternative.
