Saimoe-chan

Simple and effective and at least everyone will understand this name even in 10 years:)

I'm going to vote for my names since Chibaka is too much of a baka to realize that this poll needs approval voting.

This.

It's not a matter of which name is the best. We need to find out percentage of total population that likes the name vs. not. If the top voted name doesn't have a majority of approval, it's meaningless.

This poll don't need approval for now ~
Maybe if results ain't good enough, we'll need to make an approval vote. But there are various way to check what need to be checked.

So basically you are saying you are going to tweak the voting to match with your preferred results? Or are you saying we are wasting our time voting here? Or maybe both?

I could choose her name without asking anyone on forum, so I don't need to tweak any results.

I don't think neither this format or approval voting may be good enough to choose best name unless one name stands out from all the others. Range voting seems most indicated system to me. However I don't like to get range voting with so many entities to rate.

So I didn't choose approval but a system that can easily eliminates options (while approval can give a very close vote easily). If a name appears to get a clear win (which means that a high percentage of voters would vote for him, so no problem about being approved), we'll choose it. If not, we'll have a reduced list of choices which can lead us to have a decent range voting to choose best name.

And if two names are still very close in range voting I may let the final word to Crisu & Grish (people who'll have to pronounce the name).

Muh McDowell is not here, disappointed.

Voted for Saimoe-chan because it's simple to remember, easy to spell and doesn't sound too weird when you actually spell it out.

Then my last vote goes to Kokusai Moeri because it doesn't sounds too random like some of the names listed and doesn't feel too weird after I spell it out either.

@Chibaka
I don't think you understand how approval voting works. It's really good at getting rid of a lot of not so popular characters. Also it's really good at making people less pissed with results, unlike what you are doing, I don't see a good reason to limit votes to 3. It just makes it harder for people to decide. Also approval voting =/= range voting, I'm just getting the impression you mixed those two. Basically you are making something that doesn't need to be a tournament match into one. We need to poll the public opinion. At least that was my impression.

I would downvote Ismaela bcs of how close it is to "Ismael"
which can be severely problematic to some Moslem people, especially the more "short-fused" ones,
bcs of he's seen as one of the patriarchs there. (even if frankly Ismael has next-to-nothing to do with Islam at all lol.)

Don't care about the rest. You guys can pick.
Giving his love for life, and died dreaming about her in the end. A real happy man, right? ~

And honestly why should we worry about what others think, especially if it's a vote. If people have a problem with it, they can vote for something else. I hate self-censorship, it's 21st century disease.

七星女帝 (Queen of ISML)

Oh jeez, the Chinese version sounds very chuuni lol. Actually, a more accurate translation of the Chinese name is "Queen of the Seven Stars" where "seven" is meaningful in ISML. I think in Japanese it's Nanahoshi no Hime (?), which sounds way better than it is in Chinese.

That actually came to my mind as well, but Ismaela just looks really good to me, a uniquely looking name resembling "ISML", it also has a cool meaning.
One thing that bothers me is there seems to be no good-sounded translation of "Ismaela" in Chinese, at least to me. But I think in China people might eventually just refer to the name by some short form like "Isma", "Ela (Ella)", so not a big deal, if "Ismaela" were to be chosen. Anyway, I voted for it~

Revie IS downvoting Ismael. And upvoting other things. I'm not sure where the self-censorship comes into play.

The Chinese pronunciation is so cringe lol. Even the Japanese version sounds more like a title than a name.

The self-censorship start when you restrict your votes for external causes which are completely unrelated and based on supposed consequences

You're all taking this way to seriously.

We're not voting about self-censorship
We're not voting about what is and is not appropriate
We're voting for the name of a mascot

My Japanese isn't good enough to understand if most of these names include puns or if they're just random.
Saimoe-chan and Moerin are the only ones I like. The others are all very forgettable.

Now that I think of it, we probably should have allowed the people who nominated names to give explanations here so that they don't seem completely random.

I mean, when we finally make this a real thing we're gonna be offering the same kind of backstory/explanation so it doesn't really make sense why we'd be voting on blind names right now.
