Anyone else wish they could've thought up a better name than "Fairy Type"?

I'm excited about the new type but I think the name is dumb. It's gonna have to grow on me.

I mean couldn't they have gone with something a little less feminine sounding like Mystic, Cosmic, heck I would've gone with Magic type before Fairy.

Mystic Type would've sounded better.

Sure, something like Fae would've sounded better, but you have to remember Nintendo's target audience for the Pokémon games. Fairy-type is simple and to-the-point. And a very good business idea, all of the little girls will want this to catch some fairies!

There's nothing feminine about "Fairy".

The name is fine.

Clefairy, Clefable, Snubull, and Granbull's shared classification, an egg group that those four Pokemon belong to, and now the new type are all originally named Yo(u)sei in Japanese. All those things other than the type had been localized as "Fairy" in the English versions. Why would the type be called anything other than Fairy in English?

It's only ever referred to ingame as the "Foreign Building." Nintendo has a long track history of removing religious references in games, even with Pokemon. A type called "Holy" would never fly.
