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.
I'm not sure most people may know her name backstory even if there is one. (I think some of those names are random or just a japanese word merely linked to ISML). Blind comprehension of the name will be what people will experiment, at least on first place, if not the only thing they'll experiment about her name. So having people voting with their own understanding of the names isn't that bad.

Maybe fact that lot of people here ain't fluent in japanese may lead us to have a name shaping his uniqueness from the international soul of our community.

:Chitose:
First: wait... so is it he or she? His or her?

Second: be careful on language fluency.

Third: I agree with Blaise (again,) but apparently nobody reads my reply properly on the previous thread, about the fact that we haven't decided a backstory.
So let's just assume she doesn't have a backstory yet.
Can somebody write one? I'm busy with the narration for the vid (which, at this point, is still pretty directionless, too.)
Or, if any of you guys who gave these names have one, you're free to post it here.
Giving his love for life, and died dreaming about her in the end. A real happy man, right? ~

I submitted Tsumarin Tōhyō.
It comes from The Japanese word for Wife (Tsuma) and the Unisex name Rin.
Tōhyō is the Japanese word for Voting.

My favorite is Hoshino Nanami. I prefer "Saimoe-chan" as a nickname and not the actual name.

I like the idea of approval or ranged voting, and of listing the meaning for each name.

I had no idea how series this saimoe mascot project was, hehe.

国 = Kuni (Country)
際 = Sai (In the case of)
国際 = Kokusai (International)
最 = Sai (The most)
萌 = Moe (Moe)
最萌 = Saimoe (The most moe)
リーグ = League (League)

Hopefully you too can piece it together.

EDIT: exec fixes

Saimoe-chan 13
Kokusai Moeri / 国最 もえり/ nick: Moerin 12

It seems like battle will be between Saimoe-Chan and Moerin. We had 20 different voters and 60%/65% decided to vote for those ones, that's pretty good results. Third name is Komoe with 5 (25%), that's a huge gap.

Welp, what can I say, results are shit because the method is shit.
So you forced everyone into voting only for two strong candidates and disregard anything else.
I'm not saying that Saimoe-chan would have lost with approval voting, I'm just saying that it's a better method.
