I have made jokes about Beerus's name being pulled from beer but I only just now realized something...

Beerus = Beer
Whis = Whiskey

Yusuke Watanabe was the one who named the characters but apparently Toriyama himself believes both names from from beer and whiskey. Pretty funny stuff.

Gotta love Dragon Ball puns. All the Angels and Gods of Destruction are named after alcohol/alcoholic beverages. For example the siblings to Beerus and Whis

Vados = Calvados (French pear brandy)
Champa = Champagne

While not canon by any stretch, I did it myself with two characters in my saga.

Borbón = Bourbon
Vardier = Boulavardier (Cocktail made like a Negroni but with bourbon)

So many puns, so little time...

Iwan - Anagram of Wine
Heles - Helles (Style of German beer)
Mule - Like a Moscow Mule
Quitela - Tequila
Arak - Moonshine (Iran)/Spirit
Champa - Champagne
Beerus - Beer
Liquiir - Liquor
Sidra - Cider
Rumsshi - Rum
Belmod - Vermouth (Other name is Japanese is Vermoud)
Giin - Gin

Angels:

Awamo - Awamori (Okinawan rice liquor, similar to shochu)
Sour - Sour drink mixer
Camparri - Campari (Italian liquer)
Cognac - Cognac (Self explamatory)
Cukatail - Cocktail
Vados - Calvados
Whis - Whiskey
Korn - Kornbrand or Kornbrantwein (Like German moonshine)
Mojito - Mojito (Rum cocktail)
Kusu - Kuusuu (Aged rice liquor. Possibly made in reference to her being the oldest sibling)

If I'm honest I had to look up Korn and Kusu, the rest I learned from previous readings. All cool alcohol name puns. Toriyama loves his comedy and he loves his puns. Goes well with the vegetable people and the undergarment family.
