Good idea.... Yes go for it. It will cost nothing to have an idea.

The letter S you say, to get the ball rolling; how about something like;

Supreme Sionnach

Sionnach being Irish for fox, or does that break the rules? You could work
out some concocted reasoning after if needed.... The fox being cleverest of
animals (ok, maybe folklore based), fast and with stealth, wild and free
(meh..., wild?), cunning in its approach, and naturally has a colour scheme
which would fit very nicely with the default Ubuntu scheme :)  Might have a
related Mozilla vibe there too if there's no bad history there that I'm not
familiar with.

So, Just a thought to get the ball rolling,

Oh, and by the way, hi everyone and best to you all for 2013 :)
