Wink Naming thy Alpha

Looking for a good name for my Alpha Mikula, I love Razzos concept of African names truly fascinating! Iv never actually named a fish before even as a young "fry" before;)
Id love to hear yalls input!
Sorry for the not so great quality picture, cellphones.

Named my show female "Nuru" which means filled with light...whenever im near the tank she starts to show off her bright white and blue pigments along with her solid dark black stripes and zorro mask. She will look amazing as she gets bigger. I only name the ones that stands out the most (when i had my old mik group and now the female i have in my new mik quad).

I usually only give my fish references rather than names, just for my own benefit, such as black lip, small one, or whatever feature makes them distinctive, but I have called my Alpha Moba Solomon, simply because he has so many wives.
