It's Time For Another Episode of NAME THAT FEDORA RELEASE (Robyn Bergeron)

Oh, Beefy Miracle, I have relished your name for months, but as your day for widespread consumption (release day) approaches, it is time for the community to choose the name of Fedora 18. This process begins with *you,* dear readers and contributors, as potential names are accepted for submission over the course of the next week, beginning now, March 20th, and ending March 27th (at 23:59:59 UTC, for those of you who can't mustard up any ideas until the last possible second).

Frankly, I'm expecting an a-bun-dance of suggestions, and not just from people who cannot take my punni-ness any longer. Rules and guidelines for suggestions, as well as the location in which you may make your name suggestions, are on this wiki page: '

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Name_s..._for_Fedora_18

A quick word on details:

You *must* follow the guidelines at the page listed above for your name to be considered. These guidelines include the following items:

* There must be an "is-a" link between the name "Beefy Miracle" (the name of F17) and your suggested name.

* That link must be different from any previous links between release names.

* Names of living people and well-known trademarks will likely be rejected as well.

Schedule details for release naming are also shown on the F18 naming wiki page.

I know that it may be hard to *top* Beefy Miracle (ahahahaha, get it? As in toppings!) but I do have every bit of faith that many of you have already thought of name suggestions that may or may not be more mature, or more neutral with regards to dietary restrictions. I do look forward to seeing your suggested names and recommend, as always, to have fun.

Cheers,

-Robyn

I know you'll all "relish" the opportunity to submit your "frank" suggestions. With the proper name, we may be able to "catch-up" with MS (or at least Ubuntu). With Gnome3, I suppose "must-turd" is an option. - (Bob)

I like it!!!

How about "Possessed Image," "Midnight Madness," "It came from beyond...," "Once upon a time," "The never ending story," and/or "Where's the beef?"

I suggest they name it "Gnome3 free" and let ppl figure out how to parse it. free=(libre, as-in-beer, excluded).

Maybe "Eighteen and I LIKE IT" - alice cooper.

The trend has been that fedora names get progressively worse. So I'm expecting something pretty awful.

Beefy is-a Miracle, so is Albert Einstein.

A brilliant physicist is a miracle ? "Beefy is-a Miracle" ? Maybe the term doesn't translate.
They don't seriously enforce the is-a rule anyway. You can make any sort of is-a
implication without much thought or support.
"X is a dum*ss name for a distro, and so is Y", works.

So what graphical themes do you see for the "Albert Einstein" ?
Geek-with-unkept-hair-on-bicycle ?
It's hard to represent light or non-simultaneous things happenings across the screen.
If you want the nice relativistic distortions as screen savers you might want to
name the distro "Hendrik Lorentz" or "Henri Poincaré" (unsung guys behind that miracle).

If they seriously enforced the rule, then F17 would never have been named "Beefy Miracle" (unless there was a porn movie or porn star named Verne )

I am not sure where we can go from here. Its a little difficult. Perhaps word games? Anagrams or Synonyms?

Beefy Miracle is a synonym of bulky event and so is a mammoth tide?

I can see the artwork now, surfing mammoths

As far as visuals for Einstein goes..

I remember one showing the unkempt Einstein riding a bicycle, compressed horizontally. Add a color rainbow to the image - red (at the front) to blue (rear of the bicycle), on a star field for the background.
