    I think the name pool should be broadened to include substances as well as animals. Say, Sparkling Silicate.

    Re: Saucy Salamander

    Being non-native in English I have to ask the stupid question: Is 'saucy' used in everyday language, and what exactly does it mean? I tried a few dictionaries but didn't find anything lucid.

    Saucy = a) impudent b) lively, vivacious, cheerful. Do a google search for saucy postcards to get a less impressive meaning in English of saucy.

    Yeah, today it's a byword for risqu etc. but at the time of Shakespeare it meant impudent/impertinent. It's a rather tame word, really.

    Funnily enough, I had guessed "Sassy Salamander". So I'm quite chuffed it was so close.

    Still wish it had been Stupid Sphynx, though.
