Futuristic Flowerback

I can only imagine the amazing future hippy art. I want this tee shirt

Faithful Foxemys

Formidable Fitzroy

I really like Flawless as an adjective. Maybe Flawless Flowerback? It rhymes a bit.

How about:
Fervent Fitzroy

I think that ROS Fervent rolls of the tongue quite well.

I agree with mjcarroll and zmk5. Flawless is a nice adjective for the forthcoming release.

How about Flawless Fusca. cyclemys fusca is a cute little leaf turtle found in myanmar.
