Something like "The Twin Allium Nebula" would sound pleasant.
It resembles the very round shape of the Allium flower and has a very floral pink.

I think Princess Leia Nebula, because it looks like Princess Leia’s head, viewed from behind.

I think, because of the pink color that is prominent, and the somewhat faint "star" shape, maybe the "Star Rose Nebula"? :)

To me it looks like an illuminated glowing Salt Crystal, hence I suggest the name the Salt Crystal Nebula

A suggested name would be the Mermaids Purse as the nebula looks very similar to a Skate egg casing which is informally known as a mermaids purse.

The skate is a "cartilaginous fish belonging to the family Rajidae in the superorder Batoidea of rays".

It looks like the Death Star explosion from Star Wars: A New Hope. How about the New Hope Nebula?
