Just did a quick costume poll.

Jedi; 7
Clone; 5
X-Wing pilot; 4
Fleet Trooper; 2
Tusken; 1
Willrow Hood; 1

Given our current mix leans towards Jedi, it would be nice if the name reflected that, a Jedi planet or some such.

These are some names that has been bought up a number of times,

Pantora
Felucia
Typhon (which I have been told was taken as Hoth's Jedi temple)
Illum (taken by Rouge Base)
Ruusan (place of the valley of the Jedi) http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Seventh_Battle_of_Ruusan
Southern Clone Base
Mandalore
Ambria http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Ambria

I would like to add this last one, it might not be a planet but is the name of a Jedi and Clone ship

Resolute (or as some people know it as Anikin Skywalker's ship) http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Resolute_(Venator-class)

Ok, as Swiv said, several of those names are already taken, including a leading favourite. Tython. Of those that are left, we have;

Pantora/Pantorans. These people were the blue-skinned ones featured in a couple of Clone Wars episodes. They feature with an "Australian" accent... Which sends most Australians into fits of laughter. Surely there are SOME Australian voice actors Lucasfilm can get hold of... They are portrayed as feisty fighters, but there is no real Jedi or Clone link.

Felucia/Felucians. This is the planet with giant fungi that does have a strong force/Jedi connection.

Ruusan... See link. I'll come back to that one, its been a while since I've read up on it. But wasn't that the Sith planet that has been reformed?

Southern Clone Base... Yeah, Adam was probably pulling our leg with that one. SCB and SCG with SSA in Sydney... Yup, DEFINITELY pulling our leg. Pull the other one, Adam, it has bells on, mate! Wink

Mandalore... This one is available, but would certainly be a controversial choice. Especially to the Mandalorian Mercs, who would want Mandalore base in a place with a strong Mandalorian presence. Not that I'm not saying that Luciferian doesn't have a strong presence... She's rather imposing! But at this stage she's the only MM here, my Mando is barely started.

Ambria is a favourite of mine. It has strong Jedi links, doesn't have the Sith past, has a good solid wiki entry and history. The name sounds like Ambrosia, a pretty heavenly place to be, I reckon!

I've got to rush, but I'll edit in more information and pics later. I'd love to hear everyone else's thoughts on the issue!

Mandalore is a given! And I like it, too. Why do you like Felucia?

What about Dantooine, in A New Hope there was the remains of a rebel Base, or has that already been taken and I do like Felucia too.

I will have to ask Ashley about pantora and why they don't have "Aussies" as voice actors. But they are awesome fighters and come on they would have some force sensitive people I am sure of it.

Hi guys, I agree, that Mandaloria, is not a viable option. I'm not sure i can agree fith Fyr on Ambria. It does sound a bit floral to me.

Is there a prison planet somewhere in the extended universe? Keeps with the Aussie convict theme.

Now that's an idea that I really like. Our base with the name of a liberated prison planet. Were there any?
