Mine would be Ominous Ornithorhynchus 1


1 Do Latin designations count? “Ornithorhynchus anatinus” = platipus.

I don’t know about the adjective, but the animal will have to be Octopus. Maybe Optimal Octopus?

maybe optimistic ox?

Ok, I’ve got another one: Orthogonal Ostrich.

Well, there’s also the Okapi, a kind of a giraffe with a short neck. Maybe Orbital Okapi?

Obsidius Ocelot

The ocelot is a medium-sized spotted wild cat that reaches 40–50 cm at the shoulders and weighs between 7 and 15.5 kg on average. It is native to the southwestern United States, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Margarita. Carl Linnaeus scientifically described it in 1758.

The ocelot is lovely. But I’m afraid they already did it way back in 2011, with Oneiric Ocelot (11.10). We need a different creature starting with ‘O’ for this (o)ne.

LOL i forgot they already did it
I used Gentoo back then

what about: Omni Oarfish
Omni means “all”, as in Ubuntu for everyone
oarfish is a peculiar yet gigantic bizarre fish

Oarfish are large, greatly elongated, pelagic lampriform fish belonging to the small family Regalecidae. Found in areas spanning from temperate ocean zones to tropical ones, yet rarely seen

Ah, Omni Oarfish is good!

Personally I love both the Octopus and the Okapi as animal options. For the adjective, what about ‘ornate’? It’s a generally positive adjective, but not one that could be confused for something specific to the software.

while i stand by my original suggestion i also think “ornate oarfish” has a certain ring to it

I would like an Optimum Osprey

‘Ornate Octopus’ would be an opportunity for some really great wallpapers if the artists can rise up to the challenge!
