> How did we end up with the current naming anyway?

[About nine months ago, in the Character Tag Categorization thread](https://derpibooru.org/forums/tagging/topics/general-topic-for-character-tag-categorization?post_id=5292282#post_5292282) it all started with a question about "Sugar Moonlight’s Filly Four group".

[It was mentioned that the naming for them isn't particularly clear](/forums/tagging/topics/general-topic-for-character-tag-categorization?post_id=5295251#post_5295251), with it ending up that [Rosedust appeared to be the bluish one and Lily appeared to be the pink/purple one](/forums/tagging/topics/general-topic-for-character-tag-categorization?post_id=5295257#post_5295257).

Much of the decision was, of course, related to how to handle the G1 Rosedust, which is how we ended up with the current [`rosedust (g5)`](https://derpibooru.org/tags/rosedust+%28g5%29) tag.

As you mentioned, "the fandom appears to have collectively concluded which character is which". At this point, it seems that the names are well established. Why do you want to change them, given that they're documented the same way across the fandom?

I mean, it's not impossible to change, but normally we need something like an official toy with the name on the tin to say, for a fact, which pony is which. Has there been a toy for either of these ponies?
