Atari Coldfire Project – Computer Naming

Post by Mathias »

Our recent news at http://acp.atari.org :
We decided to let the Atari community find a name for our computer. The current codename of our project is 'Coldari' which some people don't like too much. Thus we want you to find a name for us - you, who supported us, contacted us with hints and sending good wishes within the last year.

We want comprehensive debates and brainstormings on Atari-Home.de, Atari-Forum.com and on our mailing list. We ask you to send earnest ideas to 'acpinfo at atari dot org' until January 31st 2010. The team (which has grown to 37 persons up to now) will then find the best 10 propositions and check them regarding usuability. An acclamation until February 20th 2010 will then assign the definite name.

Please take care about trademark rights. 'Atari 2010', 'New Falcon' or 'Microsoftkiller' would be discarded at once.

On February 21st we will officially nominate the computer to its name, which you chose, and under which it will then be produced. We will nonetheless refrain from throwing a Magnum bottle of Champaigne at one of the prototypes ;)

Please send numerous ideas ...
So let´s start the discussion right here:
MegaST 4 with Sounddesigner II MegaBus hardware and 56001, Hades 040, MagiC Mac at Mac OS 9 and a FireBee.

Attempts at integrating 'Atari' into the name.
Centauri -> from the Last Starfighter, so what if sounds similar to Centech. :P
ZenTari -> cause it takes me to my happy place. :D However, already a lot of google hits on that. Go figure.
Coolari -> Google thinks I spelled it wrong, so its seems unique.

Coldfire toned down a bit. lol
Coolfire -> already used, see google. :P

Barrow the naming scheme from amiga, ami-this ami-that...
AriOne
Natari, lol

Ok, now I'm getting silly. :P

Just my 2 cents...

How about

Nutari?

Or drop all references to Atari and call it something like the:

STFM 2080?

My suggestion: Falcon V4e
Or is 'Falcon' really not allowed for trademark reasons?

If we are going for Bird names how about "Imperial Shag"?

Or if it has to be a Bird of Prey that the Amiga hasn't used maybe "Cooper's Hawk" ;-)

Or for Sensible ideas look here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_bi ... ommon_name

Prometheus is good.

I like the idea of a bird naming convention. I would go for Osprey.
