I have no preference as far as the code name. I will call it Mint 9 regardless of it's code name.

I agree. It's easier to help people as using codenames people can get confused (like me). Anyways, it's fun to pick a name but Mint 9 (and 8 and prior) are easier to call them the actual number they are. Like I said before--less confusing.

I don't find the codenames confusing, quite the contrary, like some people I find them more natural. For instance, when talking with my friends about Ubuntu, we call the releases by their codenames (i.e Hardy, Intrepid, Jaunty, Karmic), never by the release number.

lol I find that when people refer to them as that I have to think what is the latest release then count the numbers in between. Maybe that's just me though lol :s

I like Iris although it doesn't end in a.
Indiana also sounds good, even though it's not a very common name.

I find names confusing, too. Names are good for internal use prior to a release because release numbers can change over the course of a long project. But after a release, names are meaningless. I have no idea what version people are talking about when they use names. While It certainly helps that the first letter of the Mint version name indicates the sequential order of the release, I find myself converting the letter to a number which is annoying extra work. All I want to know is if it's version 7, 8, 9, etc.

But if we have to have a name I like Isabella.

Does the Crowned Princess Victoria Ingrid Alice Desiree of Sweden use LinuxMint ?

If she does use LinuxMint on her personal laptop or Royal PC, that would make her name a favorite amongst LM users :mrgreen:

I have to say I really go with "Isabella".
We can't use something like "Ingrid", can we??? I think mint codenames have to be:
-Female name
-Following the alphabet and always ending with "A":
Bianca, Cassandra... Gloria, Helena, and hopefully: Isabella

Since I've installed Mint on my mother's machine, she has a hard time remembering if it's Linux or Mint -- so -- she calls it LINT... Perfect!!

Solved.

The name for Linux Mint 9 is LINT. :)

I'd say it needs to be a well known name, nothing too exotic.
Ivana seems to trump the others, for me :D
