    I gotta say Tesselia sounds the best of 'em all to me.

    I like Teselia because it reminds me of Tesla (Nikola Tesla and the various things named after him like Tesla Motors), but I also like Unima. Unova is kinda lame (although I think all of them are better than Isshu)

    Isshu for sure because it sounds like a Pokemon region, whereas Unova reminds me of Genovia from the Princess Diaries... Which is probably sad that I know enough about the Princess Diaries to make that connection.

    Isshu - Pretty awesome. Loved how it sounded.
    Unova - I was first unhappy with the renaming, but when I saw how the name came to be, I grew on me.
    Unys - ... Unys... *snicker*
    Einall - *snicker*... Einall.
    Unima - Sounds like Unova.
    Teselia - Sounds pretty good, even though I don't know where it came from.
    Hézhòng - .............

    Isshu - I like the name, although it would sound a bit awkward in English ("Issue" Region...)
    Unova - This was unexpected (as with all the other names), but it has a nice ring (I pronounced it as Ooh-noh-vah) and meaning ("one new").
    Unys, Einall, Unima - Exotic (at least for me), elegant and also meaningful ("United", "All in one", "one soul")
    Teselia - It sounds nice, but I don't really get why (besides the slight resemblance to Thessaly). It does remind me of the word "tessellate" and "tessera".
    合眾 (Hézhòng) - It's not as elegant, but it does preserve the meaning and I like it (At least it's not the fan name 伊修 Yīxiū). It's funny that 合眾地方 literally translates to "United Region of America" and references E pluribus unum (合眾為一 in Chinese).

    I'm going with the Chinese name anyway (because I'm biased). Ironic that no one voted for German, since it was being discussed in the first page. The only name missing now is the Korean one...

    Just say "E Shoe"- the first part of the name has a sound like the letter "E" (technically, it's "eesh-shoo", but... hey).

    It's pronounced you-NO-va

    My favourite name for the Gen V region was Einall (the German name), it's very cool! Unova is not too bad.

    While Castelia has grown on me, I can't say the same about Unova. I still dislike the name, and while it doesn't bother me as much as it used to anymore, I still don't understand why they had to change it from Isshu.

    Isshu and Teselia.

    Isshu is also great for puns. And I just seem to have an Isshu with pronuncing "U"s like yoo and not ooh.
