Daily Prompt: Sounds Right

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/sounds-right/

This is clearly subjective, but some words really sound like the thing they describe (personal favorites: puffin; bulbous; fidgeting). Do you have an example of such a word (or, alternatively, of a word that sounds like the exact opposite of what it refers to)? What do you think creates this effect?

I don’t remember any words exactly, but I remember I was a kind of child who liked to make up my own words or names that sound like foreign, exotic, mysterious or ancient, like from a fairy-tale, or sound like fierce and brave, or girly.
