Fanfic in progress: help with some names? McBehrer!MBZYCuFtNgCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 3209

Hey guys!

Man, it sure is good to be back on this site. It must have been... 3, 4 years since the last time I was here?

Anyway, I am working on writing a fanfic, and I have a lot of ideas nailed down, but I would like to see if any of you could maybe help me out with some names.

I need:
A name for an art exhibit (themed around capturing moments from everyday life in Equestria, in a frank and realistic manner)

The creator of said art pieces. I'm looking for something that indicates his skill at sculpting -- particularly with marble -- and is maybe just a tiny bit suggestive.

Whatever Button Mash's mom's name is. I don't know if she has a particular name that is universally agreed-upon, but whatever it is, I want to know it.

Similarly, the name of a janitor. If there's a canon janitor, that would work (is Hayseed Turniptruck a character? I lost track of fanon after a while)

I'll add any more if I remember, but for now that should be it. Thanks for the help, everyone.

Oh, also I'll need a name for the museum itself. I was hoping to have the acronym be a pun of some sort. Something like, _______ Equestrian Museum for the Arts, and have the first word start with an F. The only Words I can think of that would fit are First and Federal, but Federal is too stiff, and First may or may not be accurate. And if there's a better pun out there, I'd rather use that.

Also, maybe a short list of which magical/supernatural events Sci Twi was privy to in the EQG universe. I haven't seen the movies, and frankly I don't really want to. But knowing what she's seen -- even as simple as, "she heard of Sunset's rampage and the Sirens, witnessed firsthand her own corruption/redemption, and has no knowledge of X" will be helpful

The antics of a inconspicuous caped crusader who hid in the bushes.

Should I have tagged it "serious answers only?" Is that a thing here?

Well, alabaster is a cool word for a type of rock that's often used to imitate marble, so you could go with something like Alabaster Chisel for the name. Not four syllables like most pony names, but he is an artist, so maybe he's just a tad pretentious.

As for the exhibits, I'd look up some of the more famous art exhibits throughout history, and edit those. For example:

Ponies On The Move: Contemporary Equestrian Art On The Turn of the 11th Century

(With the assumption that their calendar revolves around when Nightmare Moon was imprisoned.)

Sensation: Young Trottish Artists From The Rich Collection

Clop!; Art And The Earth Pony Revolution

Something along those lines.

Nice thanks! I was going to bump it soon, but you did it for me! I do still need help, if anyone wants to give me some serious suggestions...

Yeah, either one is good. I can decide after I get suggestions. I was thinking of something like Marble Spire or something for the artist.

It depends on the race.

Unicorns tend to have glittery, celestial, or adjective based names.

Earth ponies tend to have object based names relevant to their special talent.

Pegasi tend to have weather or flying based names, usually with a verb thrown in.

Bonus points if any of them form a pun or play on words
