Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

The only ponies confirmed to have changed their names are the wives.

Eh. Pony naming conventions have always been nonsensical as all hell.

I'm just upset because I thought it was some neat world-building, finally acknowledging how ponies got names that suited their cutie marks and occupation.

but no, it's just because they're wives.

It really cheapens the emotional impact, I think, when you realize that Pear Butter wasn't really forced to change her name to escape her family's hatred. she just happened to be the wife.

If you know anypony else who changed their name, please do say. But as far as I know, the only three who did were wives, and they only did it when they got married, taking their husband's name. There were some wives who didn't change their name as far as we know, but everypony who did change their name only did it as a traditional wifely duty.

Pear Butter changed her name to...?

I'd assume that the Cakes weren't both named "Cake" before getting married. If they weren't, then one or both of them changed his and/or her name. We don't know which.

While true - and understandable - in Spoiled Milk's case, we don't know when Miss Cake changed her name.

I was more under the impression she changed it when she discovered her talent for baking.

And I'm not aware Pear Butter changed her name at all, she just had a nickname that everyone used.

Buttercup.

>>36829473

Mrs. Cake used to be named Chiffon Swirl

>>36829474

Huh, actually now that I look at it, you're right. They never say her name in flashbacks, so it could've been Cup Cake before she married Carrot, and just coincidentally ended up with the same last name. Well, it's a remote possibility, at least.

And they do say Buttercup is her nickname, but it really seems like grasping at straws, since Apple Bloom, Applejack and Big Mac all had no idea that wasn't her real name. I can't imagine she didn't change it to her nickname after the marriage. All the ponies who changed their names are still the wives, and it's just hard to conclude that Pear Butter wouldn't have changed her name regardless of the feud, as per the marital tradition.

Night Light changed his name from Nachtlicht when he immigrated from the old country.
