"Also our dolphin wants a beautiful name!  ;D"

How about Delphina?

-means "of Delphi", an ancient Greek city whose  name is rooted in Greek δελφις (delphis), meaning "dolphin" ,which makes it a nicely circular name derivation!!  :)

If it is a male dolphin, it could be Delphinus. If an Italian dolphin, maybe Delfina.  If Irish, Deilf (meaning 'dolphin', strangely enough!) I vote for Deilf, but then I would...

Thanks for the fun activity,

Vic

I quite like Delfini ( "Delfeeni" ) as it sounds female though is actually a noun in neuter gender. Δελφίνι.

There is of course "Flipper". There's a very loose link here with side-swiper and paddle keys :-)

If you want an female name why not QRPia. Another could be an unisex name QRPower :-\ .

The first name that came to mind was Rudy. i have no clue where in  my grey matter THAT came from, but for some silly reason I like it a lot. Anyone I've ever met with the name Rudy have all been very nice people who you could count on. Maybe I've just been lucky.
