Montez and Deo

 When it ran a contest to choose the names of its two mascots, Montedio Yamagata obviously didnt get very many "original" suggestions, though the fact that both names sound slightly "latin" is a nice touch. The big fella -- Montez -- represents the mountains around Yamagata city, and the little guy -- Deo -- is based on the Japanese serow -- a type of wild antelope that lives in the mountains of Yamagata prefecture. However, compared with the real serow, Deo has an extra horn in the middle of his forehead, making him look more like a unicorn -- or is it a tricorn?
