Firstly, sorry OldMarcus because i had not see your open topic - May - 05/2009

My vote goes to " H E L L E N A "
Greek origin

I have no choice on my entire family blood tree names - Hebrew - British - Italian - Brazilian

Clem, has said the names should come from Old Rome, Greece, Carthage (origin)
It's already a tradition for The Linux Mint Editions Names - code names

Best Wishes
Roberto :wink:

What about "Hydrangea"? It`s the name of a flower.

I also like Helena.

+1 for Hera (someone suggested early on in this thread). I like that name for three reasons.

1. Cool Mythology Reference
2. Cool Battlestar Galactica reference
3. Mint 8 Hera just sounds cool (to me)

+1 for Helena. Beautiful name with a great history background.

I don't like Hanna.

EDIT: Shouldn't this post be moved to the "Chat about Mint" section?

Seriously, all these other "H" names in this thread sound like they should be OGRE's. I don't want to be using this OS and have to refer to it as some ogre of a name. And I certainly don't want to be subjected to the hassles of the bugs it would bring of having such a name.

Hanna is a very nice name for a girl.

That's very subjective.

Helena is a beautiful name, IMHO, and the fact is that it has a nice history background.

Agreed with kaixi.

Personally, I think Hanna is an extremely ugly name (no offense people named Hanna, I'm sorry).

I agree to Helena but i think that 'H' and 'I' are hard for girl's names, so mint 9 will also be hard (especially for a name ending in a) :D

I agree to Helena. It fits. Because elyssa, felicia, and gloria need a helena to follow.

Hi,

No problem - Linux Mint called only by numbers.

I always call Linux Mint 5 "Elyssa" - Linux Mint 6 "Felicia" - Linux Mint 7 "Gloria"

Helena - Isadora - Julia - Laura

I do appreciate these names posted by me above.

I really got a girl on every corner - LOL...LOL

Best
Roberto :wink:

Helena gets my vote. It fits the theme of the other names and it works when you say them in order, to me at least.
