    well Jasmine does kinda dress like someone in a choir or it could be due to the song by November Doom called Chorus of Jasmine or there is the song Jasmine flower that is often sung by Choirs.

    yah that probably is the reason most of the earlier ships tend to be named somewhere from inspiration of artwork or music most of the time

    CantarellaShipping - Cyrus & Janine ( where is the source for these two?)

    Cantarella was said to be a variation of arsenic, which was supposedly used by those who wished to rid themselves of unwanted people or enemies. It's in Assassin's creed as such. With Cyrus's desire to get rid of people and it being a form of poison it does sort of fit. There's also a manga by that name but i have no idea if it has anything to do with this.

    with your explanation i can see how it would fit them both, though i'm really surprise that they have to go for a name that some people even haven't heard of

    CasanovaShipping for Brock & Totodile - i know how it concerns brock but i never heard that how it concerns pokemon

    it goes back to the episode Love, Totodile Style where Ash's totodile act's like brock and quickly falls in love with an Azumarill Brock tried to give him advice to make Ash's totodile as much of a Casanova as he is.When the azumarill rejected him he very quickly moved on to a random Quagsire. So in a sense they are both trying to be a Casanova.

    It's a reference to the California Gold Rush of 1849. The gold seekers at the time were called 49ers, a nod to that year. Considering that both Byron and Roark are miners, I imagine that's why it arrived to that name. Fun fact: The San Francisco 49ers sport team are also named after the same thing, so in a way, you are right.

    Well Macy specialises in fire types. Theres also the definition of fire that means passion. Ash has always had a fire during battle and some people saw them having fire between them and Macy had alot of fire as well.

    Diana is likely a reference to the Greek goddess Diana the goddess if the hunt. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diana_(mythology). She was worshiped as somewhat of a feminist icon whuch would suit Phoebe and Cynthia, she was said to be beautiful guess that fits as well. The godess of the hunt migh sort of suit Cynthia as the most powerful trainer able to hunt others down and she was also said to be able to talk to animals something that has been said of phoebe as well.

    Well when some people have obsessions with some people like Brock does they might want a dolly version of that person i suppose that would fit with paige and i guess paige probably has some dollys given her age. This is more of a guess.

    I'd assume it's mostly a reference to how Sir Aaron's lucario liked chocolate(even though he got it from Max) the interaction TR had with Maylenes Lucario using chocolate (IIRC) Ash's constant obsession with food and how chocolate is said to be something for Sharing.

    Could I please ask about these ships:

    MangaAbilityShipping - Red & Anabel
    MangaAdvanceShipping - Red & Sapphire
    MangaCavalierShipping - Green Oak & Platinum Berlitz
    MangaNegaiShipping - Red & Iris
    MangaNewRivalShipping - Wally & Sapphire
    MangaPearlShipping - Red & Platinum Berlitz
    MangaPokeShipping - Red & Misty
    MangaQuestShipping - Gold & Crystal

    More specifically about the Manga- prefix and why these ships are all just anime/games ships with manga in front of them. Why was this done?

    Not to seem offensive, but it seems a bit lazy in my opinion.

    very obvious where the manga word came from, as for the second word i think it came from the old ships (Cavalier, Negai,...)

    yeah i know they don't make sense but once the name is submitted it can no longer be changed
    Yeah I know there was a lot of hate towards Girlfriend (Kari), but I'm really not planning to drop it cause if I do that it will also mean that I'm dropping the current game I'm playing

    My guess is that it's to do with the scale given that abonasnow probably represents the fact that it makes everything cold wereas despite being an ice type trainer Candice is always warm, and no Celsius is not alway mean for hot −273.15°C is what would be described as absolute Zero and that's definitely not hot. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celsius

    I presume Hilda's supposed to represent Desdemona as she is very independent and I guess Ash would represent Othello himself as the Outsider to the region

    Azalee is actually a baby girl's name , the reason with the name is maybe because the one who submit thinks that they might look like songbirds/idols since its name catually means singer. Its a pretty cracky name but that's what it actually means

    this one is pretty tricky, one search in google give daddy the knife is probably a reference to a song by Naz Nomad & The Nightmares, what I can try to say was the one who submit this name might probably think that Barry is a punk since the one who sang Give Daddy A Knife is a rock band while Kris might be similar to Marina which is a reference to music

    idk but maybe other people have different interpretations than this
