2013 Robot Naming Thread
« on: February 14, 2013, 09:46:41 PM »
So its about time to get our robot named. Any appropriate suggestions for the robot name are welcomed.

For robot ideas you can look into the early robot naming thread that Ben made a while back.

Some of our past robot names have been:
Early Blue Lightning years: Kate Gleason, KG-2, KG-3, KG-4, (KG = Kate Gleason)

2009: Karel-lyn - both a tribute to Bootsie (Carolyn Booton) and the infamous robot program used in Comp Sci 1 that can only turn left.

2010: Uncle Ralph - tribute to a retiring advisor, Mr. Breese, who was famous for saying, "Get your mom, dad or your uncle Ralph to sign this..."

2011: Jemo - The Kenyan name for Jim Nowak, the Fairport teacher and coach who had died in a car accident in Kenya that year

2012: Darth Raider - partially named based on the robots appearance, mostly a random suggestion to fit the team name by a Freshman

EDIT: The suggestions will be voted and selected on Saturday evening

Have to put this up. :)



In all seriousness I like the name big red. Maybe there is a cool sounding firetruck model name?

I like the Idea of Darth Rader, but it seems as a rip off of Darth. How about Uncle Ralph though, that one sounds pretty good.

Is there any basis for "Furious George" or "Lolrus"? Or are they just random names?

Endurance - reflects how Team 578 and the community continues to grow, learn, adapt, and persevere despite adversity.
                            - late 15c., "continued existence in time;" see endure + -ance. Meaning "ability to endure suffering, etc." is from 1660s.

Definitely a relevant name based on our performance in previous years.

Two recent suggestions I've received via email are "That Freaking Robot!" and "Lorry"

Brennan,

I liked your previous suggestion of naming the robot Iron Angel. Is that one still in the running?

Yes. Iron Angel is still in the running. This way we can represent both Blake and Mrs. Boyum, and be robot related.

Another email suggestion: "Jarl Carl"

So the suggestions I have seen altogether:
Red Rescue Rig
Furious George
LOLrus
Serenity
Endurance
That Freaking Robot
Lorry
Iron Angel
Jarl Carl

...I'm a little disappointed, really. Not that our robot really resembles anything, but none of these names are really that impressive. But that's just my opinion.
