Couldn't they come up with something better?

That's really, really terrible. Not just the lack of creativity, but the imagery itself is terrible. Who wants to be "pretty" at a war? Just no.

Personally, I would have named her Salicina. It's lovely and feminine and rolls nicely off the tongue. P. salicina is one of the most commercial plum species.

They could have gone with War Isn't Pretty. It still combines both parents names and makes a political statement.

I wonder how often owners submit cool, clever or classy names, only to get stuck with their 2nd or 3rd choice when their preferred name gets rejected by the JC for some reason. :?

Unfortunately, Pretty at War was the first and only name submitted in this case.

Was Wonder Woman/Diana Prince taken?
I think the Wonder Woman film showed the grace and beauty in the sheer athleticism of the amazons, so that could evoke a certain imagery without glorifying warfare. Plus in terms of comics canon, the amazons fight with honour and nobility, and for a just cause. It doesn't have quite the same infantilised connotations of "pretty". Or they could've tried a name pertaining to cultures with warrior women/famous warrior women of the past.

Both of those names would be considered copyrighted material and not be allowed to be used. The only way you could get around it is if you knew a real person named Diana Prince and she gave you written permission to use her name.
