ROS 2 G Name Brainstorming

Ok here is my number 1:

  • Galactic Geochelone

Geochelone genus contains the “star tortoise”?

Clearly it is one of the following with Galactic!:

  • Galactic Geochelone
  • Galactic Glyptemys
  • Galactic Graptemys
  • Galactic Gopherus
  • Galactic Gamera
  • Galactic Geometricus

Lonesome George was the last known individual of the Pinta Island Tortoises. It appeared in the Guinness world record book as the most endangered animal and the most rare reptile.

Guinness George or Gigantic George


Galatic Gamera would be perfect!

I think you mean #GigaGamera ! :grin:

:sweat_smile: as @gbiggs mentioned, the logo possibilities for galactic are endless. Also, ros-galactic sounds super cool :grin:

Just a reminder, anything that is encumbered IP is probably not going to pass as the distro name. That includes Gamera, unfortunately.

the trade mark on #Gamera was recently renewed… if you want to waste some 3:42 or 5:02 of your life time, click on the links and watch those videos… so Gamera is out - not possible

Just Goo might be easy to distinguish, can put a logo like used for ‘world of goo’

[off-topic / side discussion]

“I wish Kim was allowed to write more songs for the Pixies,” commented Kurt Cobain in 1992, “because Gigantic is their best song, and Kim wrote it.” The seductive Gigantic, on which she also sang lead vocals, featured on Pixies’ debut full-length, 1988’s Surfer Rosa, but would be her sole songwriting contribution to the group.

Unfortunately we cannot start a dicussion on with him, but I completely agree with Kurt…

And yes, the lyrics are even more off-topic…

Love this, we’ll end up with Gui tho.

How about Galactic Genbu?
Genbu is the Black Tortoise from the Four symbols of Chinese constellation. It also seems to be the inspiration of Gamera (too bad it’s trademarked, Galactic Gamera would be epic)


Glistening Glyptops :sparkles:

Galactic would be super awesome.

Also, glowing.
