Naming Fluttershy's Parents, Trixie's Mom, and the Sphinx

Terminal Rex

Going Indognito mode..
When I first proposed the name Dandy lion Way back when, I was trying to come up with a name that not only evokes fashionability and femininity but also aludes to the characters Inner strength and ferocious love for her child. And, yeah, It was because she had a flower on her butt and her tanish colour reminded me of a lion. I’m bad at puns.
 
Looking back, It may have been a bit on the nose but pony names aren’t exactly known for being subtle. Though I’m still partial to Dandy lion, Perhaps just Dandy, Dandelion or Dandy Lulamoon?  
Either way, I’m pleased and thankfull that other people liked the name Dandy lion too.
 
Just the idea of playing a part, no matter how small, in molding Trixie’s story, sets my heart aflutter. She’s my favourite character.

What about a name that’s more human-like for Trixie’s mom? As Trixie is basically just a human name, as is the Jack part of Jack Pot. Of course I suck at names so idfk.

In My Defense, Here’s M.A. Larson’s and Big Jim Miller’s quotes on the Naming of our Town taken by the MLP wiki. If any of this is inaccurate,Please let me know.
 
“Fandom can decide what to call the village”- M.A. Larson
 
“We refer to it as ‘Our Town’ but as of yet, it has no official name.”- Jim Miller
 
And Aside from some Magazine that was published somewhere in the UK that hasn’t been released Worldwide. The Town that has no name…Still has no name. I mean we can still vote on ‘Our Town’ as a name but it still stands that the show, the comics, and the crew are undecided with the name and want US the fans to think of a name.

Weirdo
why do i have to repete myself over and over?
Because everyone’s too polite to just tell you your suggestion stinks; you’re literally asking everyone to call The Sphinx, Sphinx but with an awkward spelling and slightly different pronunciation, and to nickname her the X sound of “Sphinx”.

Another Japanese name? Really?
 
@Sugar Morning  
You’re welcome.
 
@LightningBolt  
A human name could honestly work for her. But I also like the Showcase or Spectacle in her name.
 
So maybe a compromise could work and we could use either choice as the second part of her name? After all, like you said, the Pot part in Jack Pot’s name is a rather pony like name. And Lulamoon certainly isn’t a human name.
 
How about Solana Showcase or Solana Spectacle? Solana is a Spanish human name and it means “sunshine.” Not only does it fit her cutie mark (since it has a sun on it) but it also starts with the same letter as the last names. And I’m a big fan of ponies that have alliterative names.

The original post specifically wants names not related to cutie marks but so many people seem dead set on naming Trixie’s mother something flower related because of the flower cutie mark. Hmm

Diamondback here; also, have names too:  
  • Sphinx = Pazuru  
  • Trixie’s Mom = Safflower Spectacle

Showcase Spectacle or Spectacle Showcase definitely gets a yes from me.
 
Although, is it ok to keep ‘Shy’ in any of her parents names? They are canonically Mr and Mrs Shy.

Eh, I prefer most of the other Trixie’s mom suggestions to the Dandy names, but even then I’d much prefer straight up “Dandelion” than “Dandy Lion”.

And Pinkie Pie was named after her colour, Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle were named after their hobbies, the Pie Sisters’ last names are well, to indicate they’re related to Pinkie, and Zecora… Idk.

I just don’t get why it has to be two terms :T  
Just makes it look silly because it’s trying to force a pun(which also makes the “lion” part look really weird when put on its own…).

I think just The Sphinx works best, although I did see Cleo in there somewhere, and that works pretty good, too.
 
I’ve seen Nimbus Breeze for Fluttershy’s dad, and I think that works great. As for her mother, I feel like Rose Cirrus Breeze, with Cirrus being either her middle or maiden name. (Yes, I’m one of the few who believe that Equestria has a full/first-middle-last naming system.)
 
As for Trixie’s mother, despite the fact that I draw her with a completely different cutie mark, and a slightly different mane style, I still feel like the name Spotlight Lulamoon would work for the IDW version (especially since the IDW color scheme for her is growing on me).
