Kalyani: it means beneficial, lucky, excellent

Found from Hiren's list of Indian baby names http://www.hiren.info/indian-baby-names/Girl/K, and doubled checked the meaning with Maneka Ghandhi's book of Hindu baby names.

I found Hiren's list yesterday while looking for distros to put on a USB flash drive (I ended up with Mint XFCE and Puppy).

I'm suggesting Karina (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karina)

It is nice name by the way, but mainly it is name of my girlfriend, who is using Linux Mint :-)

Well, here are a few of my suggestions. ;)

Linux Mint Kalpurnia (I know the usual spelling is Calpurnia, but Kalpurnia is its Polish form; Calpurnia was the name of Julius Caesar's last wife)

Linux Mint Kassiopeia (believe me, that's the original Greek spelling of what has been latinized as Cassiopeia)

Linux Mint Kiara (variant spelling of Irish Ciara)

Linux Mint Klara (variant spelling of Clara)

Linux Mint Kleopatra (believe me, that's the original Greek spelling of what has been latinized as Cleopatra)

Linux Mint Kornelia (variant spelling of Cornelia)

:D

How about Katya, Katerina, or Katyusha (all versions of the same Russian name).

Linux Mint Katya
Linux Mint Katyusha
Linux Mint Katerina

Here's more Russian names: Klava or Klavdia, Karina, Kira, Ksenia or Ksyusha

Katrina (and many variants) remind me of Hurricane Katrina which was a horrible disaster for so many people in the United States. I would stay away from that one.

Though something tells me people are going to try to brush it off and say that it's a forgotten pastime. It only happened 5 years ago, and it had world-wide coverage. It's well known anywhere you go.

Please don't name this beautiful distro after a horrible disaster. :(


That being said, I do like the sounds of 'Karma.' :wink:

I thought that ' Kenny-May' might be somewhat all inclusive.

I know its the last letter of the Greek alphabet and I don't want 11 to be considered the last version but I like the sound of Linux Mint 11 "Omega".

Kadia = rhythmic flow of sounds, variant of Cady
Kaela = beloved sweetheart
Kalaesia = an angel
Kalista = Beautiful one
Kamilla = Perfection (Arabic)
Kasia = Alert. vigorous. Modern variant of Casey (English)

Koraline :lol: :lol:

Why ? As the cool movie/tale Coraline - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0327597/

which was really cool and funny when Coraline always with a little angriness in her voice had to complain:

I am not Caroline, I am Coraline ! :x :lol: :lol:

We could get much fun then, I am sure we could :lol:
