For Mint 8, they will begin with 'H'.

Mine: Hannah

I've previously suggested Hellena. I think they should end with an 'a', as it certainly has precedent, though I don't know it it's a requirement.

We're going for names with 'H'. Already on the 'G' :P

Here's what I got:

Halawa
Haldana
Halena (I particularly like this one. But sounds too much like Calena)
Halma (I like this one too, reminds me of Salma Hayek....yum!)
Hanna
Haiba
Hypatia

I see no reasons for a name. Mint 8 is very easy to remember. What is wrong with keeping things simple?
