====Name origin====
Umbreon is a combination of ''{{wp|umbra}}'' (Latin for ''shadow'' and ''ghost'', as well as the name for the moon's silhouette during a solar eclipse) and ''eon'', a shortened form of ''evolution'', the word also meaning (an immeasurably long period of time, (possibly referring to how long evolution takes naturally). ''Eon'' is a suffix all {{p|Eevee}} [[evolution]]s share and was Eevee's English prototype name.
Blacky may be a combination of ''black'' and ''lucky'', attributing the black cat in Japan that is considered lucky. It may also refer to the color of its coat.
