Hey Linux Mint community. When Linuxmint 12 comes out could the codename please be "Laura"?

A friend of mine might be convinced to accept the way of linux if it happens. She loves our motto "from freedom came elegance" but that isn't enough. :?

respectfully yours Icarus

I think I vote (vox poplus) for Brie or Mercedes, or maye Fe (Feona), been watching Burn otice TV show recently or the female Mossad agent on NCIS, forgotten her character name, Ziva (David)
--heh, I just like those names..

OK, I likey Ziva
--sounds so snappy and intriquing

I don't know if that will work...don't get me wrong those are all great names and I'm sure finding the perfect one for LInuxMInt is difficult but...LinuxMint 12 should have a name that starts with L, you know to keep the names in alphabetical order.

respectfully yours

Icarus

With an alternate spelling it could be Laelia, from

LÆLIA: Feminine form of Roman Latin Lælius... This is the name of a beautiful orchid flower named after one of the Vestal Virgins of Roman mythology.

I suggest Laura. That's my name, so I would be even more pleased to use an OS named Laura :D Or Lydia - that's my mother's name.

If I'm not mistaken it should also end with "a". Any other things that need to be considered ?

Since we start with L, I'd also continue with I... this would rhyme with LInux and MInt. From here I sought for something that sounds elegant for me, and came up with:

Lisa - smart, elegant... unsophisticated...
Leena\Lina, which means light. freedom (free man) and palm tree - which is green too...
Linea\Linnea - sounds sleek (Linux Mint Linnea - how does that sound ? - I'd say that comes out of the mount with ease... )

The only names I like so far in this threat are:

Lancia
Larissa strikes me as somewhat too sexy for an OS, but hey. Lancia is pure glam, elegant, clean.

I like Linda. The connection with the word beautiful fits Linux Mint very well.
