Well considering they abandoned their trend of unique animal names such as Eft, Gibbon, Heron and Ibex and went with KOALA, I'm going to suggest a simple name:

Leaping Ladybug.

This may change however, because I haven't given it as much thought as I did KINETIC KIWI. That, and I've been awake for more than thirty-six hours and need some sleep.

It's obvious I'm still sour over the whole 9.10 name, isn't it? :(

+1. This is a great name, and it can be also "converted to usage" in the OS. (ie, you being lazy, so the OS does things for you, etc)

I think that lazy is perhaps not a good thing though. It could reflect badly on Ubuntu.

Ladybug would be a terrible name because it's only known as that in North America. In the rest of the english speak-speaking world it's ladybird, so I don't think it would be particularly endearing to a South African/Brit like Mark Shuttleworth

In the United States, LadyBird (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lady_Bird_Johnson)is the name of a first lady.

true, although her nickname was in fact derived from the beetle that americans typically refer to as "ladybugs". I'm not advocating the use of ladybird or ladybug, since either would lead to confusion.

Now that Mark Shuttleworth has announced the name of the new Ubuntu release to be Karmic Koala, I thought it would be fun to play around with some ideas for the release following that. I kinda like the sound of Loyal Lynx.

I'm all for Leaping Leopard, it makes sense, leopards leap into trees and it could be a leap for the operating system. Maybe incorporate some large changes.

Or Lusty Leopard, Lasting Leopard (I think it's a LTS release?)

"Leopard" probably has trademark issues with Apple Inc.

I wish for Lightning Lobster. :)

Tom Smykowski (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0726223/): It was a "Jump to Conclusions" mat. You see, it would be this mat that you would put on the floor... and would have different CONCLUSIONS written on it that you could JUMP TO.
Michael Bolton (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0379114/): That's the worst idea I've ever heard in my life, Tom.

Leaping Lemur, hands down. Leave the cats to Apple. Plus, I believe that Ubuntu names shouldn't have dangerous animals on them. The names (so far) have always included friendly animals, or at least not carnivores. Except for Warthog. I don't like warthogs :O. Scary animals, when they're scared. Scary. Scary. Scary.
Anyways, +1 for Leaping Lemur.

It should obviously depend on what is emphasized about the release.

adjectives by theme:
Leaping - fast
Lively - Quick... Would be good if there were plans for more background processes to benefit the OS.
Lusterous - sexy new theme/graphical stuff
Luminescant - Same as above, plus an emphasis on leading the croud.
Lithe - Flexible/graceful in how it preformed + UI improvements
Luxurious - UI improvements/ease of use.
Lavish - Same as above.
Larky - Easy/convenient/fun to use
Learned - Built with knowledge gained from all other releases.
Lucky - Intuitive, When you try something, it works, regardless of how unlikely it seems.
Lumbering - Well, it is a LTS... What do you expect by the end of its life?


nouns by their attributes:
Lemur - Agile
Lynx - Quick
Liger - Sturdy, freakishly strong
Lobster - Hardened, secure
Leviathan - Mythically powerful and agile

My ideal release would be something like Larky Lemur

Well, I suppose we must get at this early, eh? ;)

As the title says, let's brainstorm up some names for Ubuntu 10.04.




This topic was brought to you by the letter:

L

No contest - we should break the goofy animal naming and move Ubuntu stable to 'Lagrange' and leave it there.

For anyone interested - in addition to being a generally brilliant individual, Joseph Louis Lagrange analyzed gravitational stability and came up with the aptly named Lagrangian points - orbital points where a small body, acted upon only by gravitational forces can maintain a stable position.

3. shining or glowing [Latin lucidus full of light]

the leopard is quick, cunning, agile and powerful... if the next release deserves such an adjective title, then i think it should take it.

+1 on Llamas in general, not to go Carl Wheezer on anyone. http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/flash/llama Maybe leaping llama? I dunno.

Maybe llamas should be weighed twice as much as the other animals because of the two "L"'s. :)

Or Lusty Leopard, Lasting Leopard (I think it's a LTS release?)I believe this poster is correct -- 10.04 will be a long-term release.

Lusty Lemur would get my vote

Lusty, as in:

full of strength and vitality : healthy, vigorous
hearty, robust
enthusiastic, rousing

And Lemur in honor of Ida (http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2009/05/090519-missing-link-found.html) (even though Ida isn't technically a Lemur, but a transitional species between higher primates and Lemur-like primates). If a nearly complete ~47 million year old fossil that seeded the branch of the tree of life that lead to humans (for better or for worse!) doesn't represent "long-term support," I don't know what does.

GuidoCalvano
July 17th, 2009, 04:33 AM
I would choose the name on where the operating system will be;

1. Reliable
2. Mighty
- though arguably lacking in software perhaps, both in terms of security and graphical capabilities it either exceeds or matches both MacOSX and Windows in every aspect.
3. Graphically striking (assuming the new theme is real cool as is planned)
4. Boots fast


A name that might be considered;

Lightning Lion

The Lion reflects the reliability, might, and graphical awe

Lightning reflects the might, graphical strikingness and fast booting.


Ubuntu is very mature now. It should have a name that reflects that. It is only honest to the users of other operating systems.

One of these: lamb, lemur, leopard, lion, lizard, llama, lobster, lovebird, lynx; combined with one of these: labored, lackadaisical, lacking, lamentable, languid, large, late, laughable, lavish, lazy, lean, learned, legal, lethal, level, lewd, light, likeable, literate, little, lively, long, longing, lopsided, loutish, lovely, loving, low, lowly, lucky, ludicrous, lush, luxuriant, lying, lyrical; generates 315 possibilites. There are more adjectives beginning with 'l' and more animal names, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

My favorite: Labored lemur. On second thought, how could lemurs be used for labor?

labored, lackadaisical, lacking, lamentable, languid, large, late, laughable, lavish, lazy, lean, learned, legal, lethal, level, lewd, light, likeable, literate, little, lively, long, longing, lopsided, loutish, lovable, lovely, loving, low, lowly, lucky, ludicrous, lush, luxuriant, lying, lyrical

and another with "L" animals:


Labrador, Ladybug, Llama, Lamb, Lamprey, Langur, Lapwing (bird), Lark, Laughing thrush, Leafbird, Leafhopper, Leafwing (insect; butterfly), Leatherback Sea Turtle, Leech, Lemming, Lemur, Leonberger, Leopard, Leopard Seal, Leveret, Lice, Liger, Lightningbug, Limpet, Limpkin, Ling, Lion, Lionfish, Lizard, Llama, Lobo, Lobster, Locust, Loggerhead turtle, Longhorn (cattle), Longspur (bird), Loon, Lorikeet, Louse, Lovebird, Lowchen, Lungfish, Lynx

Personally I'm a fan of:

Loyal Labrador, Laughable Loggerhead (a turtle), Ludicrous Lemer, Lucky Leopard, Lively Llama, or Likeable Lynx.

However, if the Ubuntu team wants to start sticking with a bird theme for extended support releases like "Hardy Heron" you could do Lavish Loon or Lovable Lark.
