"Hecate" is too on the nose and overused. Makes me think of Hercules. "Nehelenia" is at least unique and enigmatic.

How about this? It's something of a title change. I never really liked the idea all that 10 Sailor Senshi of the Solar System are princesses, it makes things less unique. How can they all be princesses? :angry:

Princess Mercury -> Duchess Mercury
Princess Mars -> Priestess Mars
Princess Jupiter -> Countess Jupiter
Princess Uranus -> Duchess Uranus
Princess Neptune -> Baroness Neptune
Princess Saturn -> ?
Princess Pluto -> Countess Pluto

Well they are each Princesses of their home planets just like Princess Serenity and Prince Endymion are royalty of the Moon and Earth.

That being said I would have liked if the 4 Inners and Outers had royal named different then their Senshi and planet names. After all Sailor Moon is not called Princess Moon or Mamoru Prince Earth.

Another name change I would like is for Queen Serenity to be called Queen Selene. I mean she claimed to be the incarnation of the Moon Goddess Selene. So why not have that name as well. I think that certain dubs even called her Queen Selene like the German and Italian dubs. Plus she would have a name that distinguishes her from her daughter Princess Serenity. However in reality all three generations of the Moon Matriarchy are based on the Goddess Selene even though that Queen Serenity claims she is the incarnation of this Goddess. Two of the generations of the Moon Matriarchy's consorts are even named after two of the romantic relationships of the Goddess Selene. First is Princess Serenity and later Neo Queen Serenity with her lover Prince and later King Endymion and later Princess Small Lady Serenity and her lover the Priest Helios. Mythology wise the Goddess Selene of Greco-Roman mythology had 4 known lovers. They were the Shepherd Prince Endymion, her brother Helios the God of the Sun, Zeus King of the Gods and Pan the God of the forests, mountains and wilds.

Maybe change Queen Nehellenia to Queen Hecate. A slightly more familiar name of a goddess in mythology in connection to magic and sometimes the moon.


I actually think Queen Nehellenia is a better name for her than Hecate. I found some sources that speculate the etymology of her name is nea selene (which also translates to New Moon). Plus there's a sense of mysteriousness that surrounds the goddess as her origins are unclear which is fitting. And the name also has a nice fairy tale ring to it.

Anyway, I would rename Helios' Maenads to the Menae. The Maenads in Greek Mythology were frightening followers of Dionysus who had nothing to do with Helios or Apollo and don't fit the image of the Maenads in the manga. Whereas the Menae were the 50 daughters of Selene and Endymion. They resemble Serenity with their odango hairstyle so I think it makes a bit more sense to go with something more moon related at least.

Or, alternatively, I'd give them the individual names of Lampetia and Phaethousa. They are the daughters of Helios in Greek Mythology.

OMG I actually named the two Maenads that appear Lampetia and Phaetousa in my fic. Great minds think alike!

BTW, I'd like the princess'/queen's name of the ultimate form of Sailor Moon to be Princess/Queen Céline - too bad it sounds too much like a luxury brand. XD

In on person's fanfic, they renamed Sailor Chibi Moon to Sailor Crescent Moon. I'm not really fond of the name, but it was something I didn't see before, and it makes some sense

Well, she said she was sent back to the current century because she needed training and wasn't a full-fledge Senshi so :grey:

So maybe we should use different names for her in different seasons too, like "Sailor Quarter Moon" & "Sailor Gibbous Moon," in addition to " Sailor Crescent Moon." P-:

And just to be sure, we make it clear she's on her way to become a Full-fledge Senshi, so the names could be Sailor Waxing Crescent Moon, Sailor First Quarter Moon, and Sailor Waxing Gibbous Moon. :P

That makes sense, but then she could degenerate after becoming "Sailor Full Moon," & the cycle would continue. :lol:
