Houndoom Nicknames

Houndoom
Houndoom
Spot
Now, I could've gone for Cerberus, but either way, you still would've ended up with the name Spot. In Greek, it's Κέρβερος, which is Kerberos, who is the hound of Hades, but it also means 'spotted'. So Hades essentially named his dog Spot. And everybody who submitted Cerberus has pretty much submitted the name Spot.

You know this much about mythology but you can't see that Houndoom doesn't have spots.

Pyrocanark
"Pyro" symbolizes its fire-typing, "can" refers to "canine", which is synonymous with the species this Pokemon is based off of, and "ark" is for "dark" to go along with its Dark-typing. Pyrocanark (Pyro-kayn-ark) essentially means Fire-Dark Dog, which is what Houndour and Houndoom are.

Foulander
References a quadrupedal monster from FF7. Foul suits its dark type. Name strikes me as that of something that roams expanses, like a plains or savanna animal, but I think it still works for Houndoom.

Houndoom
Hellen
Well, it's a terrible play on words, Houndoom is based on a hellhound, so I took the name "Helen" and gave it another l, so it was "Hell-en." You could also go with Hades or Cerberus from Greek mythology, but Hades would fit a Giratina more, and Cerberus would fit a Hydregion more. So what are your thoughts, sir? TL;DR- Hell-en. Cause it's based on a hellhound.

Brimstone
Now, I know you're going to insult me for this, but I honestly don't care. Yes, I know Brimstone is the name of many unpopular and rather annoying things, but it also represents power, destruction, and fire. Houndoom is a fire type, as I hope you know. It also has a sort of dark, solemn ring to it. Okay. I've given my reasons, and I'm prepared for your worst. And if Sentret is rating this, hi!

Gabriel
Well, in some Mythologies, Gabriel is the leader of the Wild Hunt (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_Hunt). Also in some mythologies, the wild hunt is made up of hellhounds (or hounds that might as well be from hell). Since Houndoom is the hellhound Pokemon, and one of it's Dex entries says that the one with the most sweeping (or something like that) horns is the leader. And perhaps in the Pokemon world, the Wild Hunt would be made up of Houndooms... The feminine version of this name is Gabrielle.
