It looks very much like a white rose from our point if view. I think it should be named something like 'Cygnus Rose Nebula', or 'Aorangi Rose Nebula' since it looks EXACTLY like this photo:

This nebula is really beautiful. It's name should reflect that.

I'd go for "The Sleeping Gonk Nebula" , but given that no one else is likely to vote for that I'll say Pillowcase :)

It looks like a shrunken ice cube. Isn't there some place like a ladder one(s) step through? Such as entertainers with talent go through, something like incubus, noting in huge tours. A ladder one(s) climb, one step is surmountable, one people without crystal, clear Rubik's cube filled with dust, at peace listening to Zoundz. Smiling, as this Bright Planetary Nebula NGC 7027....

RAVIOLI nebula

Maybe it is just because it is an hour until lunch and I'm hungry, but this looks like ravioli. You can see the filling bulging in the middle of rectangular pasta, which is smooth on the folded edge, and "jagged" on the crimped edge, and swirled atop a circle of sauce.

Ravioli. It's an Italian nebula.

looks like an oblique five-pointed star emblem, but Star Nebula seems oddly redundant. How about Sheriff Nebula (Sheriff Badge, Badge)?

I suggest the naming the nebula angel expanding.

It does look a bit like a Klingon War Bird but it instantly bought to mind a regular childhood occurrence.
Often walking across a field a flock of Quail would erupt from the grass almost underfoot. Heart attack stuff.
This looked just like a fleeing QUIAL when I saw it.
