ROS 2 H Name Brainstorming

  • Hazy Homopus

It would easily work for a craft beer too

  • Hard Helmeted

Hypnotic Hypnotoad
Handsome Hypnotoad
Hail Hypnotoad



I support this proposition if and only if the S release can be “Sandstorm.


All glory to the hypnotoad!hypnotoad


Galactic was such a great adjective, that I thought it only befitting if H-turtle were to follow the pattern. It took a great many seconds of pondering, but I finally came upon such adjectives.

  • Hectic
  • Hella-Hectic, or Hellectic (at last, the long-lost sibling of Galactic has been found)
  • Holy-Hellectic
  • Hilactic, which may be interpreted as a reptile well-nourished on a dairy-rich diet (high lactic), or one with a hilariously hectic plight
  • Hibernatic, the state of the reptile after such a plight

Regarding the last state, sing (in your head only, please) The Pointer Sisters’ 1984 hit song Automatic, but replace automatic with Hiiii-beeeeer-naaa-tiiic:

(You may ignore the part about “all of my systems are down, down down down” that goes right before it.)

In that fashion:
Hydromatic Hypnotoad!


I definitely like the “Hutchemys” name, but it would be fun to shorten it to “Hutch”.

For example, “Hazy Hutch”, “Hasty Hutch”, “Hardy Hutch”, etc.

… or even go a little longer with “Hutchison”, since the actual turtle according to the Wiki is called “Hutchison’s Turtle”. For example, “Hazy Hutchison”.

Hitchhiking Hypnotoad (or Hydromedusa or some other turtle species)

Hitchhiking following Galactic is the motivation for the name :upside_down_face:


I like Heroic (short and easy to pronounce), so I checked out the turtles behind that adjective, and conclude that Hawksbill gives the most majestic image search results.

edit: After sleeping on it, nothing rolls off the tongue like Hyper, so Hyper Hawksbill has my vote.

I vote for Handsome Hypnotoad!

Fun fact, in German a toad is “Kröte” and a turtle is “Schildkröte” which literally means “shield toad”. Therefore a toad is basically a turtle without a shell :wink:

Awaiting K Name for ROS2. I had put this request for K Name

How about “Heroic Hominoid”

H-Turtle will be a LTS release. The complete LTS release list is bouncy, dashing, foxy. Being an engineer I long for patterns, so I think the new release should be -ing.

I was trying to find a nice adjective, and a place came to my mind instead. Where would you get long term support better than in The Shire?

And thus my proposition is
Halfling Halfshell


What about:

Howling Hardella


Horny Hippo would be funny.

or Hipster Hippo sounds more Millennial.
