ROS 2 H Name Brainstorming

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

:slight_smile:

Horny Hippo would be funny.

or Hipster Hippo sounds more Millennial.

Hyper Hawksbill … rolls off the tongue nicely, feels codey and is a hyper turtle what!

We’ll grab the suggestions from this page in a week from now, so make sure to get any last ideas in!

I’m loving the suggestions so far!

Heroic is trying too hard! Don’t want to get too full of ourselves, now. I like a slightly goofy name far more than one that takes itself seriously.

I think Harmonic has a nice synergy with the ROS1 Melodic distro. Could also be Harmonical.
You could also have something like “Hexagonal” or “Hexangular” that relates to some turtle’s shell pattern.

Not for H, but for P maybe?

Phantasticus

Here is a list of all words in /usr/share/dict that are 8 letters long (‘H’ is the 8th letter in the English alphabet) that start with the letter ‘H’. I tried to remove any ‘bad’ words that I found, but I created/skimmed the list while waiting for my compilation to complete, so probably missed some. If anyone has the time to properly vet and remove inappropriate words, it would be useful. Also, for those that speak languages/dialects other than USA Midwestern English that notice words that are ‘bad’ either as-is, or when translated into another language, please remove them from the list as well.

Thanks,
Cem Karan

I’d once again like all the folks here to consider the name “Headstrong Halfshell”.

Given the current world scenario and the role robotics engineers and their robots have played recently, the adjective headstrong really fits in well!

Excited to know the final name!

Unfortunately the name has already been chosen! See here at the bottom of the ROS 2 Galactic release announcement (:drum: :drum:): ROS 2 Galactic Geochelone Released
