How about the Soapbar nebula, Pillow nebula, or Diamond nebula?

Based on the visible light appearance of it from this page I'd definitely say a chromosome. BTW, you are missing a lot if you don't include the narrowband data.
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

It should be named Parnassus after the grass of Parnassus which it resembles. Plus, It's a gorgeous name that does this wonder of the sky justice.
