Honestly, with a name like Yasmani, these puns should write themselves, but I couldn't think of anything good. There were plenty of things involving brand name birth control, being "The Man", and pictures of Yasmine Bleeth, but nothing felt right. So I'm dedicating this thread to coming up with good puns and nicknames.

This might seem premature to some of you, but considering you voted him the 6th best prospect in the system, y'all clearly think he's got a promising future, so let's come up with a good name for him!

In other news, Prospect #7 is today. Judging by the tight race for second yesterday, this should be a close one. Happy voting!
