Qamra = "moon" in Greek

Or how about a derivative... "Qamara" = which supposedly also means "moon", but in Arabic... i'm not Arabic (nor Greek for that matter), but I was looking through a site that has a list of names for baby girls and this one came up and it sounded really nice to me... well, both do...

Linux Mint 17 Qamara..... oh yeah! 8)
My setup:
  • *Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon 32-bit; Compaq Presario V2000-Intel 1.5GHz (Pentium M) - Intel 82852/855GM integrated video (i915)
    *Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon 64-bit; HP Media Center m7780n; GTX 750Ti (v352.63); Intel E6400 dual-core @ 2.13GHz

You don't like Quataryna ? :)
+1 for Quataryna, it's widely used in many languages (though a bit modified, depending on the language) and it's just simply beautiful.

I like Quintessa, Querida and Quentina. :)
And yeah, this should definitely be a poll-topic.
If you think you're the only one, think again.

I'm voting for Querida.
I believe it's an appropriate name for a Long Term Support release! :D

How about we skip the letter Q, I mean, do we really have to stick to this alphabetical order. What happens after we run out of letters, begin with A all over again of course so why not do away with the ones that leave us such cumbrous options. :)

I'm seeing a lot of support for Qayla, and with its Irish heritage, it would seem appropriate what with Mint HQ having moved from France to Ireland. My 2¢ worth

I thought, what better name for Mint 17?..

So my nomination for the code name for the next LTS version of Linux Mint (17) is Querida.
...read the whole thread... I still like Querida! :mrgreen:

I dont know if this has already been proposed but as an ageing rocker the only thing i can think of is....."Quadrophenia"
The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

+1 on Qia (if the above translation is correct, I didn't check it)

so many Q- names are kinda weird, hard to say, and difficult to relate to. Not the impression you want to give. I like the simplicity of Qia a lot.

My vote is for Quiana, American Indian for silky, as in silky smooth, as in Mint 17?

Second choice, but powerful, is Querida, a generic loving name, could be for mistress, is Spanish in origin. Mi amor, mi querida, mi Mint!!!!

It's strange we still don't know the name of the next release :D
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
