Help Name the Next Eclipse Simultaneous Release

The Eclipse Planning Council recently setup a poll to solicit feedback from the Eclipse community on deciding a name for the next Eclipse Simultaneous release. In my opinion, “I” is a hard letter to use as the basis for a name but I think we have come up with a good list of names to choose from.

I’m personally split between Indigo and Izar. I like Indigo because of the name… and I like Izar because we can totally rock some PageRank with that. On top of that, Izar is neat because it’s a double star system (it’s hard to see the smaller one)…

Anyways, put your vote in and let’s get a name.

    What ever happened to “Io” as an option? Fitting into the “Jupiter moon” tradition it would have been the most logical choice IMO.
    AND it sounds much better and not as over the top as any of the poll choices…

  • The thinking was that Io was too overloaded… Input/Output

    It's always hard choosing a name… it's impossible to please everyone 🙂

  • Eric Jablow

    Perhaps it should be called Iapetus. Are Saturn's moons acceptable?

    Jupiter still has Iocaste and Isonoe.

  • It's a bit late but I think the current pool of names is what we will go with. You can still comment on the bug with your desires so they are recorded.
