I voted for Bangles along with Jinxy and Magna.
I hope we end up with a good name at the end of all this.
Really don’t want the character I draw most often to have a shit name.

I really don’t see how it fits. Her cutie mark is a wand with a sun on it (which kind of makes it also look like a sunflower). There’s nothing really about her that seems to scream "dandelion" or "lions" at me. I figure a sun based name or a magic-based name would suit her a lot better.

I don’t know if "kusu" means anything, I just thought it sounded exotic. Though I chose a good variety on all of them…

Why is Cleo and Cleopatra separate? XD
Hope the former doesn’t win since I have friend with a sphinx oc called Cleo and I’d rather not deal with Jim’s claiming the name was ’stolen’ in comment sections.

That Kusu name is loosing horribly, I was actually coming in here to express gratitude over the fact other names are being favored. It has barely more than half the votes of the top 2 contenders. Widdles is losing even worse in the other poll.

Suffice to say, those two are names we probably don’t have to worry about.

It looks like my favorite picks for the Sphinx are making really good top votes. I prefer her to be nameless, but I figured I might as well pick the best ones of these just in case the nameless bit might lose.

Word Bug

I believe using a shortened name of an Egyptian monarch’s name for a sphinx means you can’t exactly claim someone else was unoriginal in using it too.
