ROS M Turtle Naming Brainstorming

With the ROS Lunar Loggerhead release approaching, it’s time to start brainstorming the full name for M Turtle.

Please provide suggestions and comments.

Past names and codenames:
Boxturtle – boxturtle
C Turtle – cturtle
Diamondback – diamondback
Electric Emys – electric
Fuerte – fuerte
Groovy Galapagos – groovy
Hydro Medusa – hydro
Indigo Igloo – indigo
Jade Turtle – jade
Kinetic Kame – kinetic
Lunar Loggerhead – lunar

Here’s a website listing some turtle species starting with M:

But be creative!

What about Mighty Mydas?


+1 for Mecha!
I like how Mecha Morenia rolls off the tongue,
