Name origin

Hello, we could add to the name origin: Tsarina that means a female monarch from Russia, Serbia or Bulgaria. Syphonaire (talk) 13:42, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

This is not Tsarina, this is Tsarevna.--DreamSoulshine (talk) 17:20, 15 October 2016 (UTC)
I have also made a brief search on the net and came to the conclusion that there is no word called Царина Tsarina in those languages, I think it should therefor be changed to Царевна Tsarevna which means "daughter to the tsar". --Raltseye prata med mej 22:07, 15 October 2016 (UTC)
Tsarina is how it's spelled in English. glikglak 22:36, 15 October 2016 (UTC)
Whoops, my bad, I searched Царина and that ended up in "did you mean Царица or Царевна". :P --Raltseye prata med mej 23:15, 15 October 2016 (UTC)

Sailor Moon reference?

Is it just me, or are Tsareena and her pre-evolved form Steenee possible references to Sailor Moon? Steenee is similar to Rini while Tsareena is similar to Serena. Rini and Serena were the first dub names of Chibi-usa and Usagi. Steenee and Tsareena even have similar hair-like appendages like Chibi-usa and Usagi's pigtails, making them look like rabbit ears. However, Tsarenna has three when Usagi only has two. Also, Chibi-usa is Usagi's daughter from the future. Another reference is the queen status that Tsareena has. She has the new ability Queenly Majesty. In Sailor Moon, Usagi (aka Princess Serenity) would later become Neo-Queen Serenity. --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 15:41, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Purple Mangosteen

Bounsweet, Steenee and Tsareena appear to be based on the Purple Mangosteen fruit. Hense the connection MangoSTEEN and STEENy as well as TsarEENa.

Mangosteen fruit has a deep red-colored rind which contains soft white edible fruit inside when peeled or cut.

Tsareena might be a reference to a legend about Queen Victoria offering a reward of 100 pounds sterling to anyone who could deliver to her the fresh [Mangosteen] fruit. Although this legend can be traced to a 1930 publication by the fruit explorer, David Fairchild, it is not substantiated by any known historical document, yet is probably responsible for the uncommon designation of mangosteen as the "Queen of Fruit".

Name origin

Can Tsareena be an adaptation of the Russian word "Царица tsaritsa" or "Царевна tsarevna" (or a combination), which means the wife of a Tsar (a Russian monarch), which can be a reference to it's beauty? Lokki (talk) 18:09, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Yes I do agree with you, it is very plausible that it might derive from those words. --Raltseye prata med mej 20:37, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
