    Hello!
    So I'm making an mlp OC, and I'm having a bit of trouble and would appreciate some suggestions~
    I don't have a name for her yet, but her talent is studying insects, and her cutie mark is a centipede, she's very flighty and kind, but easily distracted. Her mane is worn like Applejacks, but is tied with a key, and her tail is left down.
    I would like some help with a name and color palette for her, Thank You!

    Brown coat and red mane/tail? Those are quite insect-y colours, and should go together quite well.

    As for a name, perhaps you could use 'Mandible' somehow? It's part of insect anatomy, and it could be shortened to 'Mandy'...

    Hope this is in someway helpful. :)

    Thank you very much, that was very helpful! I am going to use your brown/red color palette idea, which experimented with and found good shades~
    As for the name, I think I am going with Arachne, and making her cutie mark a spider,
    Thank you again for the help!
