From central Greek to a finch to an asteroid: How any Manjaro release name is chosen?


I searched, but couldn’t find the answer.
Is there any reason?
Who suggests and who chooses?


Phil is a Trekkie.


I am not a fan of the series and don’t know the relation between names and movies.
But Android chooses sweet snacks, Mint takes girls name.


And Manjaro chooses names from astronomy which happen to come in alphabetical order.


So! then fringilla and ellada are space objects, other than their main meaning.



oooooooooooo un pajarito…

#7 @Holmes it is an asteroid.


Grinner is meteoric. That should be next I think. :slight_smile::grinning::grin::stuck_out_tongue::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


Great Bear — it’s time to get Great.

as an aside oberon circles uranus


Which is quite a good strategy. They will run out of the girls names or names of the snacks over time, but apparently they don’t expect they would need that many names.

Manjaro on the other hand knows it needs a lot of names and only stars, planets, comets etc comes close to what Manjaro will need in the future :wink:


If I right are the Manjaro releases have following names:
0.8.x Ascella
15.09 Bellatrix
15.12 Capella
16.06 Daniella
16.08 Ellada
16.10 Fringilla
17.0 Gellivara

For the most Manjaro names I found a reference but not for Daniela and Ellada.

And with Bellatrix and Capella I’m not sure.

Can you help me with Bellatrix, Capella, Daniela and Ellada to find a link to an reference?
