Has Cleopatra ever been used?
Ummm.... yeah,

It was used by an Egyptian queen, but that's not important right now.

And, for those that forgot, they are looking for a name that
starts with "i" and ends with "a" :wink:
Things are more like they are now than they ever were before.

Thats just silly. :(

And in the main post, there is no rules that it can't start with something else than i. Only make sure to make it end with an a.

@znote

It was just a light hearted little joke.

No need to get upset, I certainly didn't mean to be insulting, just humorous.

But perhaps you should read the first post in this thread again carefully.
Linux Mint 7 Gloria User Guide wrote:Codenames in Linux Mint are always female names ending with “a”. They follow the alphabetical order and the first letter of the codename corresponds to the index of the version number in the alphabet.

I'll start it off with: Isabella (runners up: Isadora, Ignacia, Iona, Iluminada)
It says quite clearly that the first letter
"corresponds to the index of the version number in the alphabet."

Linux Mint 8 = Helena
Linux Mint 7 = Gloria
Linux Mint 6 = Felicia
Linux Mint 5 = Elyssa
Linux Mint 4 = Daryna

This version will be "I-------a"

So lighten up :wink:

I would vote for Isabella, as that was my favorite grandma's name.
I had a dream that mint 9 was named Iclemina.

Eleanor
"It is of Greek origin, and its meaning is "sun ray, shining light". Variant of Helen."

Sounds good to me if it comes from variant of Helen.
Helena 8
Eleanor 9

David Hunter wrote:Illyria

Illyria is the original Greek for the city of Troy, from which the name 'Iliad' comes. 'Iliad' was the prequel to the more famous 'Odyssey', and describes the Trojan War, including the conquest of the Greeks over Troy. ('Odyssey' describes the journey of a Greek soldier returning home from Troy after the war).

Illyria is a particularly well suited name, as Helena, the name for LM8, was the Greek princess kidnapped by the Trojans which sparked the war in the first place.

That post that sold me on "Illyria." I hope that's the name that gets chosen. Who ultimately decides on the name, anyway?
