Can we have a mountain or crater named for Shelly Wahnee?

The International Astronomical Union has agreed on a set of naming schemes for natural features on Pluto, Charon, and Pluto's other moons.

It seems to me that Wapsi Square's otherworldly explorer, Shelly Wahnee, might very well qualify under any of several of the categories as a result of her heritage and her time in the Time Forest:

Pluto:

Gods, goddesses, and other beings associated with the Underworld from mythology, folklore and literature.

Charon:

Fictional and mythological voyagers, travellers and explorers.

Hydra:

Legendary serpents and dragons. (A bit of a stretch, as a Sphinx isn't really either.)

Any craters that she makes, she can name as she pleases. I'll not argue with her over the matter.
