Pledis Girlz has announced the official name under which the girl group will be promoting!

They announced it at their concert and via Facebook.  Although they've been active under the name Pledis Girlz from January 2016 to January 2017, that is not their official name.  They are now going by PRISTIN, which is a mix of "prismatic (bright and clear)" and "elastin (flawless strength)."


What do you make of the name?

Couldn't they have just said that it's a derivation of the word pristine?

I dunno. It reminds me of the word Prissy. But they are a korean group so why should they care.
