:If by "cercus" you mean "circus", then the appearance as well as its acrobatic nature on its water balloons do seem to be inspired from seals and clowns in a circus. [[User:ChE clarinetist|ChE clarinetist]] ([[User talk:ChE clarinetist|talk]]) 22:19, 10 May 2016 (UTC)

== Name Origin ==
 
If we're considering Hawaiian words as an influence for the name's origin, then perhaps the Hawaiian word for ball, "pōpō", should be considered for the first part of the name. After all, the Japanese name's broken-down meaning is "sea lion" and "ball".
 
If so, then would someone be willing to add pōpō into the name origin section?
:Popplio may be a combination of ''pop'' and ''lio''. ''Pop'' may come from the {{wp|Hawaiian language|Hawaiian}} word for ball, ''pōpō'', or from the English word ''pop''. ''Lio'', may come from ''ʻīlio-holo-i-ka-uaua'', the Hawaiian name for the {{wp|Hawaiian monk seal}}, which means "dog that runs in rough water".
 
I changed some punctuation for Hawaiian words, as they traditionally are written with the ʻ and with certain pronunciation cues (see: ō and ī).[[User:Pacack| <span style="background:#000000"><span style="color:#ffe700">'''Pa'''ᗧ•••</span><span style="color:#0000FF">ᗣ'''ck'''</span> </span>]] 23:06, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
