Aquilla seems like the best fit for what we're going for. Sits alongside water elementals too.

Padneh sounds good! Some other options could be Phande, Nephda, Dhanpe, Ahdnep, Ephand, Dephna. Loads of others we could likely come up with too.

Re: [Pod 2] Durnipia (Kiora, the Rising Tide) - Design?

Padneh reminds me too much of Padme from Star Wars, especially when spoken out loud. Particularly when there's so many other good options to choose from.

I'm not sure an anagram of Daphne is necessary or likely to produce the best outcome, but of the options presented I prefer Dephna or Nephda.

Is this really an issue though? We already ripped "Tetsuo" directly out of Akira.

I like Padneh, but Nephda seems fine as well.

For what it's worth, Tetsuo is a direct reference to one of the most influential Cyberpunk works. Tetsuo is also an actual name that several characters and people have used (the one from Akira is also far less recognizable in the cultural lexicon than Padme, IMO).

I don't see a similar thematic relationship between Padme and an aquatic nymph, and as original fantasy names, I'm more sympathetic to the concern of one accidentally sounding derivative of the other.

Re: [Pod 2] Durnipia (Kiora, the Rising Tide) - Design?

What were everyone's thoughts on a name here? Padna, Padneh, and Nephda all seem to be in favour. If anyone else has any other ideas please do share them!

Padna seems like a good middle ground to what people seem to like so far without it sounding too much like Padmé. I'm personally not fussed about it sounding like Padmé but if others are concerned we can go with something else.

Re: [Pod 2] Durnipia (Kiora, the Rising Tide) - Design?

I see Padna I read Panda lol.

I think we may be limiting ourselves unnecessarily by trying to force her name to be an anagram of Daphne.

How about something completely different?

Seriphel? Valithel? Hyllenia? The options are endless.
