I vote Olivia.
Why don't you edit that first post and make it a real survey?

I like a couple of old greek/latin female names: Olimpia (mother of Alexander The Great) or Octavia (niece of Julius Caesar).
Sorry, I only speak Spanish

Personally, I'd go for Odessa.

Looking at the codenames, a lot of the syllables end in vowels, and those that don't end in softer consenants. Most are under four syllables as well.

With that said, I find Olivia to be out of place with the other names; The hard "v" sets it out like a sore thumb. Ophelia seems too awkward; the other names just smoothly fall off the tongue, while Ophelia almost has a forced sound to it (and perhaps is too region-specific with the "ph" as an "f" sound").
I wouldn't go so far as to leave Linux Mint if either were adopted as the codename, but that's my 2 cents worth. Of course, those also seem to be the two most popular names, so I wouldn't be too surprised if one or the other is adopted.
They say that a three-year old can use Windows 8. I say that's a bit of a regression. When I was three, I could use DOS.

A computer without Windows is like a fish without a bicycle.

If you look here: http://packages.linuxmint.com, you can see that the Mint 15 repo is named "Olivia", so I'm guessing it will be called "Olivia".

Yes, confirmed that Linux Mint 15 will be called Olivia.

Olivia had my vote, so I'm happy :mrgreen: This also means that the development cycle for Linux Mint 15 is underway!

Owww! That's good news, I really like Olivia :)

But we still have to wait four or five months until Olivia. There's enough Mint until there :D

Always the least fun option, sigh :)
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!

We can stop voting :) Linux Mint 15 will be called Olivia.

Locking the topic, as for this release we're done. Thanks all for suggesting your favorites!
