And I imagine the Glittering SHS ponies are marching with ill-found confidence towards this discussion as well...

Did you figure out that the G SHS names would work if they were in a different order?

Speckles and Bunkie sound like disgusting symptoms of some childhood disease.

Admittedly Fleecy and Fluffy don't make any more sense with safety pins, but at least they aren't contagious.

 :lol:

Pinneedle and Stabby perhaps?

In an awesome way though. xD

More like Jabby and Stabby, tbh. >.>

Lol. I was gonna say Jabby, but that might be too close to Jabber.  Otoh, Hasbro thought nothing of giving 2 newborn twins the name Sniffles.

Not here: they're Tuggles & Toddles here.
NBT careers: Fleecy & Fluffy knit wing warmers, Big Top & Toppy are acrobats while Tickles & Giggles are clowns. Tuggles & Toddles make carts for disabled Ponies, & Sniffles & Snookums are pharmacists.

Further up I agree the Glittery SHS Ponies are the wrong way round, like two of the Colourswirls (we know which two)
My Mascots (so far): Twisty Tail, G2 Trixiebelle, Starcatcher, Twilight Sparkle. All variants & pictures of these are appreciated. Piccies courtesy of Griffin & Blumiere

*puts on mafia voice* ya see, when a couple of newbies suggest using a bakery as a front to hide the goods, and then they hide the Pearl necklace in a pie and accidentally sell it. That is a pearly pie.
This. Sentence. Is. False! Dontthinkaboutitdontthinkaboutit.

Minty... has shamrocks (or clover) not mint leaves (totally different shape!)
Bluebell has... purple stars
Lemon Drop is yellow but... the drops are purple
Fizzy - her symbols look more like ice cream sundaes (instead of fizzy soda)
Zig Zag is striped more like a zebra (yep, I'm being fussy here)

then there's the camel pony friend....  ;)

I asked this same question once, and the most plausible explanation someone came up with was that they were going for 'Jibber/Jabber', as in the expression for nonsensical chatter, but it got written down as Jebber instead and it went to print before anyone caught it...another 'okay, we made the deadline, can we rush off to cocktail hour' moment, perhaps? Oh if only we knew what they were thinking on some of these names!

Does G4 Royal Pin count?  He has a safety pin for a symbol so I guess the pin part makes sense (although I find it an odd choice for an adult pony) but why  does he have Royal in his name?

The thought of Hasbro deciding a lot of the names at the company cocktail party or 5 minutes before the weekend always makes me laugh.  :lol:

Oh! I think they meant to call them Jabber and Jibber, but botched the spelling because they were drunk, and didn't catch it in time.

What's wrong with the camel's name? Aren't they sposed to have attitude problems anyway?

I always thought Fizzy's symbol was soda floats.

You are absolutely right! Nothing wrong with the name... but it's a British thing that kinda translates awkwardly, that's all  ;)
