Not quite as unique

New details on the original Pokemon games continues to release this week, as source code from those titles has been discovered. We learned of a Pokemon Pink that was possibly in development back in the day, and now we have early names for both Cubone and Clefairy.

According to the leaked data, Cubone was going to be called Orphon, and Clefairy was to be named Aria. As you can tell, those names were pretty on-the-nose for the backgrounds of the characters. I guess Nintendo and Pokemon Co. decided to go with names a bit more unique for the final release.
