Origin

Passimian apears to be based in a ruffed lemur, as well a rugby player. - unsigned comment from Pescavelho (talkcontribs)

I'm thinking it's english name might also be a reference to prosimian Storm1051787 (talk) 16:18, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
Seems to best fit the Black and White Ruffed Lemur Thefirebear (talk) 17:04, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
I agree that the name could very well be derived from prosimian, despite my usually minimalist ideas about name origins. In this case, it's because lemurs are prosimians and not simians. --KingStarscream (talk) 18:30, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Passimian seems more to be like an American football player rather than rugby player, given its design is more similar to a footballer's uniform than a rugby player's, as well as its artwork being in the position a typical quarterback takes on the offensive line. --Sinjoh (talk) 20:35, 5 November 2016 (UTC)
