When I do get Yeast, I'm going to name him Thrush. (Yes, I know what it is...) He'll be the ONLY one I name.

Cute names. Mine I generally refer to by either their scientific name or the disease they cause, I'm not as clever

I am guessing that is a typo, it is spelled flagella (plural of flagellum), the whip-like appendages on some bacteria cells that gives them the ability to swim, made up of a protein called flagellin. That is what the strings on E. coli, Ulcer, and Salmonella are.
