Stylistic Rules:

  1. No references to the category name in the entries
    eg: no "Angelfish" in the fish category.
  2. Avoid overly similar-sounding names
  3. Avoid names of prominent bodies in our Solar System
    eg: "Stormcloud" and "Raincloud", separate "North/South/East/West Wind" entries
