Naming Contest - New Mermaid Sketch!

I have a new mermaid sketch that needs a name! I originally posted this sketch about a month ago, but I finally have the time to turn her into a finished painting. This new sketch features a graceful mermaid with some intricate shell, wave and bubble designs! I really hope that you all enjoy her. =)

Most importantly...she needs a name! Please post your name suggestions below along with your email addresses so I can contact you if you win. I have allowed anonymous posts so that those of you with no accounts can still post, but please make sure to post your email address so that I know who to contact. Anyone is welcome to participate! And feel free to post as many names as you'd like.

The person who suggests the name I pick will win a 5x7" print of the finished piece. You can make suggestions up until I post the clean line version of the sketch and that's when I will announce the winner. I don't have an exact time, but it will probably be in a couple days, so make sure to get in your suggestions soon!

I'm really looking forward to working on this painting. I'm thinking that I will paint her in shades of teal, purple and brown. I think it will look really pretty! I'll be sure to keep you all updated on my progress and thanks in advance for all the name suggestions. =)
