Possible Future macOS Names

Just for funnies. Others have done this as well before

We’ve had:

Maverics
Yosemite
El Capitan
Sierra

 Criteria as I see them

  1. In California
  2. Natural Feature or Area
  3. Proper name.
  4. Has to sound good when spoken.
  5. Well known, or famous within a niche

 Bad or doesn’t sound right

Death Valley
Long Beach
“Anything” Beach
Silicon Valley, plus, doesn’t meet criteria #2
Lassen
Fresno LOL
Sacramento ROFL

 Possibly, but connotation may be wrong:

Malibu - first three seem too fancy
Napa
Sonoma
Cupertino - too self-promoting
Ventura - at least to Californians, this might sound low rent

 Possible Bets - vaguely in order

Mojave
Capistrano
Shasta
Calistoga
Sequoia
Point Reyes
Ojai - technically a town, but also a very natural area
a beach name without including “Beach” e.g. Hermosa
Pinnacles
Red Rock
Humboldt
Big Sur
Tahoe
Monterey
Carmel

I may add to this over time.
