I voted for the names that had Showcase, Specticle and the like. Because those are names she should have.

not a flower base name just because her cm is a flower. Honestly people, her cm isn't even a Dandelion so why would you name her DANDY LION!!! please, im tellin' ya, she gets that name im tellin the wiki crew they're gonna need a new wiki pony list editor cause i aint puttin' that in!

That's a fair point. It's not like Fluttershy is named Butterflies or Pinkie Pie is named Balloons or something like that. Not every pony needs a name that's connected to their cutie mark.

Fun fact: Apparently Phix liked to strangulate those who failed to solve her riddles. In fact, "sphinx" can be roughly translated as "strangler" or "one who strangulates" from Ancient Greek. And even funnier, the word shares its etymology with the word "sphincter".

Think of it this way, in universe, ponies are named long before they get a cutie mark. So if names happen to be related to the cutie mark it is just a coincidence. Ponies should be be named with in universe logic as if we were the parents.

Which is why I'd suggest not trying to shame people who want to name trixie's mom some variation of "dandelion"

There is a difference between making a name that is related and applies to the creature
than
naming a pony after a flower that isn't even their cutie mark, and Dandy doesn't do her personality a justice, it's just NOT her..it goes against her personality.

…different strokes for different folks, I guess.

To play devil's advocate here, does Trixie's mom even have a personality? I don't read the comics but from what I recall all she did was just appear in one brief moment and didn't have any lines.

Does she strike you as the Dandy sort?
When you think dandy what do you think of?

Definitely not Trixie's mom. She isn't the sunglasses, dapper clothes-wearing, slick back grease haired 60-80s styled pony.Or somethin' like that

This may shock you but Junebug is not actually a junebug, nor is her cutie mark an insect…

At any rate, my Dandelion Dream suggestion was a nod to the people who wanted dandy lion, but it doesn't look like it's going to make it. Dandelion Lulamoon might, though.

Dandy also means stylish (regardless of era). Its other definition means "Excellent". So, Trixie is "great and powerful" while her mother is "excellent." The name could work that way (and this is coming from someone who doesn't like the name either).

@cheezedoodle
I'm upset about some of these names myself but you make a good point.

I already said I have been had, my notes checks out. LOGIC is back in and my sanity is restored. I no longer see a problem with naming her Dandy…just keep that Lion shite out.

feels good to not be Twilighting anymore…

I made my comment the exact same time you made your "I think I have been had" comment. So it was just unfortunate timing on my part.

I agree with the lion for the most part though.
Maybe she tames lions as part of a magic act?

That Junebug really forced me to do a 180 reivaluate my entire standing.

All we know about Trixie's mom is what she looks like and who she's related too. And while some ponies names have nothing to do with their cutie marks, the large majority of them do. Or at least evokes them.

Beatrix Sunnyflower was and is the most suitable name. If I could add in Beatrix Sundazzle for those who like the Sundazzle name, I would.
