NGC 40 is already the Bow Tie Nebula. Sorry. I'm with the Beignet crowd.

Burning Marshmallow Nebula is my pick. The flames are going in all directions because it's in space. And as the millennia go by, the nebula will STILL look like a burning marshmallow - with a bit of imagination at least.

Melpomene, the muse of tragedy, is often depicted holding the tragic mask and wearing buskins. Thalia, the muse of comedy, is similarly associated with the mask of comedy and comic's socks. Some people refer to the masks themselves as "Sock and Buskin."
I propose the "Sock-Buskin nebula" or the Melpomene-Thalia Nebula."

How is it that an exploding sphere can form into the shape of a rectangle?

They form many varied, lovely shapes... I have a collection https://www.flickr.com/photos/geckzilla ... 7355849174
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

It looks like a Flying Squirrel, so it could be named the Flying-Squirrel-Nebula.

How about The Throwing Star Nebula? Or the Ravioli Nebula? I just had to chime in. You're not likely to hear from me much, as it's a long orbit.

I think it should be called the Brain Nebula, because the pink behind the red stripes look similar the the top of a brain.

It should be names the Rose Nebula or Halsey Rose nebula due to it's similarities to Halsey's rose tattoo.

I thought the same thing, but would like to add that it looks like a marshmallow inside of a flaming bed pillow. Don't know what you would call that though!
