Potential names for next Mac OS Operating System

Apple guys have just released the new version of their operating system, named Lion. Polls are opened for its next version’s name. Not v 10.8, already named “Cougar”. I’m talking about 10.9

As they seem to use any single species name of the felidae biological family, the next name should be chosen between the following list, made up using the only felidae names that are not already used in any of their X family OS.

  • Chinese Mountain Cat (Felis bieti)
  • Domestic Cat (Felis catus)
  • Jungle Cat (Felis chaus)
  • Sand Cat (Felis margarita)
  • Black-footed Cat (Felis nigripes)
  • Wildcat (Felis silvestris)
  • Pallas’s Cat (Otocolobus manul)
  • Leopard Cat (Prionailurus bengalensis)
  • Iriomote Cat (Prionailurus iriomotensis)
  • Flat-headed Cat (Prionailurus planiceps)
  • Rusty-spotted Cat (Prionailurus rubiginosus)
  • Fishing Cat (Prionailurus viverrinus)
  • Jaguarundi (Puma yagouaroundi)
  • Canadian Lynx (Lynx canadensis)
  • Eurasian Lynx (Lynx lynx)
  • Iberian Lynx (Lynx pardinus)
  • Bobcat (Lynx rufus)
  • Pantanal Cat (Leopardus braccatus)
  • Colocolo (Leopardus colocolo)
  • Geoffroy’s Cat (Leopardus geoffroyi)
  • Kodkod (Leopardus guigna)
  • Andean Mountain Cat (Leopardus jacobitus)
  • Pampas Cat (Leopardus pajeros)
  • Ocelot (Leopardus pardalis)
  • Oncilla (Leopardus tigrinus)
  • Margay (Leopardus wiedii)
  • Serval (Leptailurus serval)
  • Caracal (Caracal caracal)
  • African Golden Cat (Profelis aurata)
  • Bay Cat (Catopuma badia)
  • Asian Golden Cat (Catopuma temminckii)
  • Marbled Cat (Pardofelis marmorata)
  • Clouded Leopard (Neofelis nebulosa)
  • Bornean Clouded Leopard (Neofelis diardi)

Wouldn’t it be great to have an OS named “Clouded Leopard”?
