Identifying a [[{{Shipping}} ship]] with both characters' names is functional but not catchy, and even {{Portmanteau Couple Name}}s aren't always colorful enough for the purposes of shipping communities. Sometimes the names don't work together very well logistically either. Therefore, a lot of ships are named in ways that aren't obvious except to those familiar with all the intricacies of the work's fandom.
