Start the name suggestions for Mint 10

Post by emorrp1 »

Since clem has been decided on Mint 9 Isadora (my runner-up) - http://www.linuxmint.com/blog/?p=1253 It's clearly the time to start suggesting names for Mint 10.
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: Julia (couldn't really think of much else, looking forward to the suggestions)

EDIT: my favourite so far is Juanita

Darn, "Isabella" didn't win ? :cry:

For LinuxMint-10 ( next October 2010 roughly) . . . . . Julia sounds like a grand name to me.

Or . . . . . ( a female name starting with "J" and ending in "A" ) ??

I still have time to change my mind. :P

Edited: Better yet . . . Juanita

Does Clem actually take the suggestions in these "start the name suggestions" threads into consideration before deciding on a name?

This is a tricky one,

Isn't it time for a change of gender

I think I like Shelby
  • Well maybe that conflicts with FOMoCo and Shelby Mustang
I do no know..

Then, again, does it have to be a personality (a person's name). How about something more general, as in science fiction or entertainment names
OK, I know Kirk is taken already as well as KHAN, KHAN!!
--Avatar, too

So, howsa 'bout...
Andromeda
Invictus
Jared (Syn)


Scarecrow (alias Dr Syn)

  • Whichever female name is selected, I will accept it. I certainly won't object to using it in Linux Mint 10...n.
Ok, well female names I seem to like-->
Tara
Brie
Mercedes

I like the singer, and it starts with J, so I go with.. (bigbug missed that one in the Js' list)

Jacinda? Means Beautiful, which is what this OS is!

Johanna? which means gift from God.

I personally like Juliana, Julia, and Josephina, in that order.

I too was a bit disappointed that Isabella didn't win for Mint 9, but Isadora was my number 2 pick.

Staying with the Greek name line is jacintha and already mentioned jacinda. Both mean beautiful flower I think.

Well I can't help feeling that Juanita would be nice - but i think there are one or two songs about Juanita so I would not recommend it
