There are no rules to this process so be creative.

I’ll start us off with a couple:

Sticking with river turtles, I’m going to go with the Fitzroy River Turtle

  • Fabulous Fitzroy
  • Frenetic Fitzroy

And obviously, since we’re getting an extended LTS, we can all hope for:

  • Flawless Fitzroy

Fearless [Fitzroy|Flowerback|Foxemys]

It could be a play of fearless concurrency in Rust using rclrs.


Futuristic Flowerback

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.


More turtles (this is what keeps me up at night):


I would suggest
Fabulous Fabrizio

How about:
Fosstering Foxemys

Fantastic Foxemys
Festive Flatback
Fizzy FalseMap
Flashy Flowerback
Freaky Fonu


How about this:
Frozen Flatback

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.

Fastitocalon: If you want some Tolkein deep cuts:


But think about the abbreviation… Now we use ROS Melodic, Kinetic, etc… Would you like using ROS Flawless? Woudln’t it sound like the “finally correct and last version”? :slight_smile:


After ROS Flawless comes ROS Groundbreaking :wink:


haha. I like that :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:. Fiery sounds good too. ROS Fiery Forsten.

P.S Ros Flawless followed by ROS GRANDE :P.
