    OK, OK, for the detractors, I know it will be 10.13.

    In the great tradition of California areas (Mavericks, Yosemite, Sierra... OK that isn't really the same tradition that the cats had, but we're now almost 4 in...)

    So, let the naming begin (The first are a list from http://www.seecalifornia.com/visit/places-in-california-you-cant-pronounce.html)
    • Tuolumne
    • Ahwahnee
    • Lompoc
    • Los Gatos
    • San Joaquin
    • Siskiyou
    • Suisun City
    • Tulelake
    • Port Hueneme
    • Cudahy
    • Ripon
    • Cuyamaca
    • Jacumba
    • Otay Mesa
    • San Ysidro
    • Poway
    • Encinitas
    • Jarupa Valley
    • Rancho Cucamonga (just because it's fun to say...)
    • Sepulveda

    macOS "Grand Canyon", implying the size of the distinction they wish to maintain between it and iOS.

    <pedantry>
    I know one thing for sure: I can predict with absolute and perfect accuracy that it WILL NOT have a capital "M" in the name "macOS" :p

    Maybe Apple will look to the UK this year and we could have macOS Bognor Regis, macOS Clacton-on-Sea or even macOS Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwrthllantysiliogogogoch.

    We've done the beach, the mountains, items in mountains, how about we go to the agriculture, and do Fresno or San Joaquin?

    Based on my experiences of my past 2 week trip on California, I think the next name will be macOS Sequoia. Has a nice ring to it and we all know what a tree hugging company Apple is!

    I love the big trees, but the name is too hard to spell and pronounce for our friends outside the US. (Worse than Yosemite was.) :rolleyes:

    Well for ease of spelling/pronouncing they could always go macOS Redwood. I was deciding between that and sequoia and thought that sequoia sounded better. Going to a tree next really makes sense to me.

    The other two I like in this thread are Alcatraz and Carmel. I think those are the best candidates mentioned here.

    Apple should name iOS 11 "Alcatraz"... gives a whole other level of meaning to "jailbreak".

    "Sausalito" would be a good name but probably cause same issues.
