What should Android "O" be called?
« on: October 27, 2016, 02:01:40 PM »

I previously did a thread asking what the names for Android versions from N through Z should be called. In June, Android N was officially named Nougat by Google.

The next letter of the alphabet is O. So, I decided I should make a thread focusing on the name for Android O.

My main pick for an "O" name would be Android Orange Crush. However, if Google can't get a licensing deal with the Dr Pepper Snapple Group, my backup choice would be Android Orange Soda.

Keeping with Google's apparent treat naming theme:
Oreo, Oatmeal cookie, Orange Sherbet

My top pick would be Oreo, despite being a trademark (they already did KitKat, so it can't be that much of an issue).

Kel might love Orange soda, but the android naming convention has no drinks. You have cakes/cookies, ice cream, confectionary

Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow, Nougat
Keeping with Google's apparent treat naming theme:
Oreo, Oatmeal cookie, Orange Sherbet
About the only possible choices.

There's also:
  • Opera, which is a french patisserie, and a rival product.
  • Othellolagkage - a Danish black-and-white cake
  • Oponki, an alternative (and seemingly rare) name for a Polish cake.
  • Ontbijtkoek - a Dutch loaf cake
  • Orange <some form of candy/cake/whatever> - things flavoured with orange that fit the naming scheme
Looks like Oreo from here, with perhaps 'Oatie' or something as a backup.

It doesn't matter if it is a drink or not; all what matters is if it is sweet.
