Maya is named after Clem's daughter. So don't be crass, and it is tradition :wink: (http://www.linuxmint.com/oldreleases.php)

I wasn't being crass,...I am familiar with the two people from the show and have had some contact with them,...I'm a fan of the show,...and thought someone else might be too...

It's a tradition? Clem has a new daughter every 6 months or so? Quite the little baby factory going on there. :lol:

*sigh* :lol: No, tradition is the release has a female name ending in the letter a, and the first letter is incremented with each major release.

Yes, and the 13th letter of the alphabet happened to be the same letter with which his daughter's name starts, that's why this release was named after her.
