Farewell, Kinetic Kame!

It was my first attempt on ROS after I came across this through University connection. Loved the project and did a small POC too. I have learnt a lot!
Now since the era of ROS1 Kinetic Kame is comming to end and while I am awaiting ROS2 K Version I would propose ROS2 K version(I know it is scheduled in 2025) but I propose ROS2 K Name as ‘Karmic Kurma’
I will give some background

I am from India and in our Mythology one of the Avatar is Tortoise called ‘Kurma’ Avatar. This is the Wki link on Kurma - Kurma - Wikipedia
Other references are - Kurma | Hindu mythology | Britannica and https://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Kurma.
When the turn of K comes can we have the ROS2 version name as KlassicKurma or KarmicKurma Please Please!! You have done based on popular characters around Tortoise in the world. This time give change to India, we have large number of students studying ROS2 and many companies working on it!
Hope my request will be granted when ‘K’ Naming will come up!
Farewell, Kinetic Kame, live long!
