Vote for 10.6's name from this list, I know there could be more, but these were the catchiest. Now 11 I agree should be called Lynx - another poster posted that, and that is catchy, a link to the past and link to the future, Lynx.
LIST:

Lynx
Bobcat
Bornean
Caracal
Cougar
Kodkod
Margay
Ocelot
Oncilla
Serval -- this one is other, sorry forgot about serval in the poll

Where's "Geoffroy's Cat"?

And "Siamese" for the twins of OS X and OS X Mobile?

Lynx is too close to linux, plus it is a name of a browser i believe. I go with Cougar...

Cougar seems most logical to me. It is probably the next most-commonly known cat after the ones that have already been used in previous versions of OSX, including Leopard.

Well, it'll almost certainly be Cougar or Lynx...those are the two remaining "cat" trademarks they have.

Explain why you would name the finest desktop OS in history those names?
Obviously I wouldn't. It's just a joke. Would you prefer Chinese Mountain Cat or Fishing Cat? Ok Ok just kidding again.
