I'll remind everybody of the "rules": female name, starting with "N", ending in "a". Don't forget that last bit :D

They're forgetting that every year... Anyway, many names can be translated to another language to end in "a".

After all these years, that song is still stuck in my head... :cry:

Linux Mint is a gateway distro. It can lead to experimentation with other, more "dangerous", distros. Use with caution. :P

Natalia.
Nina is also nice, especially if we want to keep it short :)
If you think you're the only one, think again.

Ah... Just a thought: Should we have name suggestion topics in forums for other languages?

My suggestion is Nala, character of the Lion King,see here

I also want to suggest some names of women scientists:


Nettie (Stevens) a woman genetist who was one of the first scientists to described the chromosomal basis of the sex. see here

Nina (Byers) a woman theoritical psysicist with many discriminations. see here


And last but not least the name "Nessie" which I believe is going to be the LM's 14 name. Everybody knows Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster! For more see here.

If I had to choose one name, I would choose the name Nessie or Nettie. They're both different as Linux Mint is.

Names must end with "a", so I don't think Nessie would be selected...

Clem has announced "Nadia" to be the name for the Linux Mint 14 release. Congrats to those of you that picked the winning name :wink:

Clem wrote:Linux Mint 14 will be named “Nadia” and should be available at the end of November 2012.

In Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars Trilogy, Nadezhda “Nadia” Chernyshevski is Maya’s best friend.

Nadia is pronounced NAH-d’-yah. It is the English form of Nadya, which itself is the pet form of Nadezhda and is Russian for “hope”. It’s also a variant of Nadiyya which, in Arabic, means “moist, tender, delicate”.

Linux Mint 14 “Nadia” will feature the following editions:

  • Cinnamon
  • MATE
  • KDE
  • Xfce
