We'd never hear the end of it.

Python? Serpent? Boomslang?

I'd concur with Mike - some homage to the Japanese heritage of the artisans would be most appropriate

how about satori

The pun may be lost on people who don't understand that "Japan" is a synonym for "urushi lacquer" but I think "Japanosaurus" might be fun, as it simultaneously points to both the urushi aspect and also the "Nessie" lineage.

Maybe Japanosaurus feastrex var. samuraii, brought to you by the scientists of Kurassic Park?

Name it Trogdor, in honor of His Destructive Burnination

another one, the Double Deuce

because I feel like offerring pop-culture related names that are probably counterproductive, but cool

Final offering... not Japanese, but as English, or something used in English was requested, how about Triton? (see attached: one of my favourite submarines -made the first submerged circumnavigation & the only western submarine to have twin reactors).

Seeing that sub reminds me of an incident commercial fishing.. When I was 15 years old I was working on a small fish boat (troller) , way out off the west coast of Vancouver Island (75miles or so out). It was a nice summer day and I was alone out in the stern cockpit going over the gear. Then all of a sudden about a hundred yards away a huge US sub surfaced, freaked the heck out of me but after I saw what it was all was ok.. I always wondered what if they had come up right underneath us as it was so close, kind of scarey stuff!! Dave

A couple of years ago a US sub DID surface right under a fishing boat, killing people I believe. It was embarrassing because they had politicos and business types on board and wanted to show them an impressive crash surfacing, but didn't check adequately for stuff on the surface..

Speaking of US submarines surfacing near ships (and a Japanese connection as well!), a few years ago a US nuclear submarine called the USS Greeneville surfaced suddenly without paying attention to what was above it, and crashed into a Japanese fishing ship (the Ehime Maru), sinking it and killing nine crewmembers. Unfortunately, it left the scene without attempting to help the survivors, otherwise there may have been fewer deaths.

So, it's a good thing that submarine didn't surface directly under you!

Wow, I will count myself as very lucky then.. The fish boat I was on was wooden, and only 38.5 feet long.. Scarey now to think how close that was, and what if it were to happen at night?? Yikes!!... Dave

I don't see much in common between a killing machine, and (wonderful) transducer!
