we mods talked it out among ourselves and figured it’d be apropos to give a heads up. in the interest of the spirit of the vote and the site itself, sockpuppeting or otherwise gaming names unfairly is a very good way to get that name disqualified from the vote. and believe you me, as sure as you were born we know when people are doing it.

I don’t know much about Egyptian lore, but I feel some good names for The Sphinx would be either: Isis, Nefertiti or Rosetta (Like the Rosetta Stone)

+1 for Rosetta.

@Wispy Tuft
that was a preemptive warning. intended to nip that stuff in the bud before it begins. having people sockpuppeting in the upcoming vote completely ruins the spirit and purpose of voting in the first place.

I vote for Sphinx staying unnamed.

@Mildgyth
Trixie’s Mom: Dandy Lion (it used to be her tag, after all and i got nothing better)
Fluttershy’s parents: Nimbus Breeze (father) and Posey Shy (mother)
We could go with that one for Trixie’s mom. Worst case, we could go with what’s on the wiki page for Trixie’s mom, or minimally have these aliased for completion’s sake.
Those Flutter parent names are actually cute. Voted. And according to wiki/twitter for Mr. and Mrs. Shy:
As of June 4-6, 2016, their names may be subject to change.
Notes 3,4,5
Fandom will decide the names. They were just Mr. & Mrs. Shy in the script.
No official names at this point. They were just Mr. & Mrs. Shy in the script.
I’m just telling folks that they have no official names at this point.

The Sphinx: Almajhul, Arabic for “the unnamed.” I was reminded of how the word “bear” is from the Saxon term for “Brown one,” as saying their name for a bear would supposedly summon the feared creature. The Sphinx would be similarly feared, its name simply indicating that it is to be feared.

Trixie’s mum: Sunny Lula
Because I was thinking of Where the Lula in Trixie’s full name comes from.

The Sphinx: Widdles
Because it means small which is ironic and it sounds like riddles which Sphinxes tell.

Fluttershy’s dad: Meringue
’Cause his mane looks like meringue.

Fluttershy’s mum: Pavlova
Made with Meringue but has strawberries, so now it matches the color of her mane.

I’m gonna jump on the train and suggest the Sphinx remain unnamed as it is a unique creature rather than a named character.

Heh, it also means to urinate in most parts of the English-speaking world.

so, i’ve given what i want the sphinx to be named.

as for the others.

Daddy shy: Cloudius Swirl (since his cm is a few clouds and his mane is a swirl)
Mommy Shy: Posey (i like the idea of her being the old fluttershy from G1 like Twilight Velvet is Twilight frmo G1)

Trixies mom: Sunny (can’t come up with a last name)

I like the name Neferiti and Cleopatra for the Sphinx.
I’ve always figured Flutter’s mother would be named Posey, just by a look at her CM.
Also, Dandy Lion is an adorable name for Trixie’s mom.

How about "Allughz Alkhabith" for the sphinx? Its arabic for "malevolent riddler" tho it roughly translates back to "the malicious puzzle".

i couldnt find an egyptian translator but apparently arabic was the closest thing. Hope this is good
