NAME SUGGESTIONS ARE CLOSED.
The phase for name suggestions is over. Please do not add further suggestions to the list. To everyone who added a name already, thank you for your contribution!

Contents

[edit] Rules

This page contains community suggestions for the Fedora 12 release name. All submissions must meet the guidelines for release names.

Cambridge → Leonidas → <new name>? Leonidas is a <blank>, and so is <new name>.

The link between Cambridge and Leonidas was "both are ships of the United States Navy." The link between Leonidas and the new name must be different than that link, and different from any other previous link.

Note.png
General links automatically rejected
General links such as "is a word" or "is a location", while technically within the scope of the rules, will most certainly be rejected by the Fedora Board. Remember, the goal is to come up with a creative link to Leonidas.

[edit] Naming Schedule

  • Name collection: May 18 - May 23
  • List to Fedora Board: May 24 - May 27
  • Board approved list to Legal: May 28 - June 8
  • Community vote on final name: June 9 - June 22, 2009
  • Name announced: June 27, 2009

[edit] Name Suggestions

Important.png
Please read carefully.
The instructions below will help prevent some suggestions from being eliminated early.

[edit] How to use this table

  1. Come up with a name idea. Put the name in the first column.
  2. Determine whether it passes the "is-a" test. You must be able to truthfully complete the sentence "Leonidas is a <...>, and so is <YOUR_NAME>." The link to the new name cannot be the same as the link from Cambridge to Leonidas, nor any other previous link. Mark the link in the appropriate column, such as "river in Kazakhstan," "deep-sea organism."
    • Don't choose obvious links, because they usually result in uninteresting names.
    • Don't choose very general names or unclear links.
    • Do choose obscure links to interesting things, which makes for a better name.
    • Do avoid all previous links wherever possible.
    • Do make sure there are at least a couple of ways to link out of the new name to the next name -- and they must be unique too!
  3. Use Google to search for possible trademark collisions. First search for the term itself along with "+software", and then broaden your search to include "+computer", "+hardware", "+technology", "+IT", and so on. Do not skimp on this step.
    • If you find a collision, it is best to find another name. Names that cause collisions will be eliminated by Red Hat's Legal department and thus waste their time, which is a valuable commodity for Fedora. Help us maximize their effectiveness by weeding out names that are trademarks of other entities, especially those in the IT industry.
    • If the collision is outside the IT/computing market, you can still submit the name but you should note the collision in the "Tested" column, and include a link to the site where the collision was found.
    • If you find no collisions, make that notation in the "Tested" column.
  4. Do not mark the approval columns. These are reserved for the approval authorities such as the Board and Red Hat Legal.

Name "Is a..." Tested Initial Approval Themeable Board Approved Legal

Approved

  1. The name "Skywalker" has obvious trademark collisions, including "Skywalker Software, Ltd." This name was erroneously kept on the Board's ballot, but will not be submitted to Legal for consideration.
  2. This name, although arguably themeable, creates a negative connotation. In the folk tale, Goliath is depicted as a malevolent foe who was defeated by the more agile and quick-thinking David.
  3. Apparently, the Elvis estate does protect this name, so on proactive advice from counsel this name has been eliminated.

Various connections that could be explored. "Leonidas is a ..."

  • King
  • Movie character
  • Poem title
  • Chain of (chocolate) stores
  • Asteroids
