How do you name this compound??

I used SpartanBuild to draw it and I copied the picture

Please check the link below:

I'm thinking its a bispiro with a cyclopropyl and an ethyl substituent

Yours truly,
FaNgS

PS: Its only one compound, the picture on the left is just a rotation of the one on the right.

It looks like a decalin compound, also known as a bicyclo[4.4.0]decane. That should get you started.
Now you need to figure out the numbering system for this decahydronaphthalene compound.

shouldn't it be a spiro compound?

i'm not sure but we just took this in class this week and we've been taught that if the carbon atoms are shared its supposed to be called a spiro compound.

spiro compounds have only 1 carbon common to both rings. This has two.
