Karmic Kachuga
Kooky Kinixys

My personal favourite: Kooky Kappa
I think it’s short and sweet…:slightly_smiling_face:

I also like Kawaii Kinixys (it’s the coolest hinge-back tortoise I’ve seen!!! :smile:)

I was thinking of Kindred Kleinmann!

Kindred seems like an apt word that symbolizes the kindred spirit we have as robotics enthusiasts and engineers, with each package in ROS created with the intent to be interoperable (much like kindred spirits working together :stuck_out_tongue:). Other considerations were that the adjective should probably be more than 1 syllable and not too complicated when typing sudo apt install ros-kindred-desktop heh!

Kleinmann because its an Egyptian tortoise that looks really adorable hahaha :slight_smile:


Karateka Kappa.
It’s not exactly a adjective but sounds good to me.

How About “Klenian” + somthing

By the way, the letter “亀” can either read as “kame” or “ki” in Japanese. Such an adherence to k.
