I'm not sure I'd consider Deviantart an authoritative source.

Firedrake beats out Fishbed in being a real word - another term for a dragon, so actually a pretty good name for a fighter. But I still think it's overwhelming lying likely to be a Deviantart artist picking a name he thinks is cool.

Fishbed is a real word. "A sedimentary stratum rich in fossil remains of fish" is what Merriam-Webster makes of it, I've seen it pop up in paleobiology.

What bothers me more: what is the use of these reporting names now that we have the makers'/users' designations?
