Mint 10 should be just fine. Easy to tell the difference between Mint 9 and Mint 11. Why make things complicated.
A woman's name is just to satisfy the male ego.
Let's keep Mint neutral.

And that means that Ubuntu is only for animal lovers!

I think it would be fun if the female name was taken from a different county each release, say a Spanish girls name for Mint 10, maybe a Russian girls for Mint 11 and how about a Chinese girls name for 12.

I think this would emphasise Mints international appeal.

Numbers are better than names.

Year followed by month tells so much more than an irrelevant name.

Think I'm favouring Jocasta at present - mother of Oedipus - this also carries along the line of ancient Greek sounding names.

Year followed by month is a sure way to make a distro seem old if there is a delay in issuing Mint.
(Isn't that the reason that Microsoft gave up on years after 98?)
