Mareep — an “electric sheep”.
I have always thought that the best name for a female “Mareep” would be “Rachael” — a character played by actress Sean Young in the movie “Blade Runner”.
Blade Runner is of course based on the Phillip K. Dick novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”. Obviously, GameFreak created Mareep based on the title of this novel. Please name a Mareep “Rachael” in honor of this legendary sci-fi novel. If you have a male, you can name it “Deckard” after the Harrison Ford character, Detective Rick Deckard. I have also named male Mareeps “P.K. Dick” in honor of the author. However, I think that these names fit the males better if they are in Mareep’s final evolved form: Ampharos.
You could probably milk the novel/movie for more Mareep-Flaaffy-Ampharos names as needed. I have given my Mareep an Everstone, as I prefer to keep her as an electric sheep. Can’t wait until she turns 100.
Another suggested name for Mareep is “Daisy” the ewe used in Woody Allen’s film “Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Sex …”
Also, the name “Lamb Chop” may be appropriate. Shari Lewis and her sheep sock puppet “Lamb Chop” were big on 1960s variety shows.
Takes you back, doesn’t it Baby-Boomers?
