    So I was wondering what everyone thinks the next MacOS release will be called after High Sierra?

    Im pretty sure MacOS is going to retain the 10.14 incremental number shift and its going to stay consistent with California theme, so based on that my name preference would be "MacOS Redwood 10.14" after the redwood national park, i think its got a nice ring to it myself.
    It would be interesting to hear some other ideas if anyone has any.

    I second Redwood. In fact when the name change from big cats first started Redwood was among the only few names I really liked.

    If not that I want OS X Sea Lion

    Redwood sounds good and the wallpaper(s) could be some amazing pictures of the coast. We've had mountains for a while, a lake+mountains in HS and now the ocean in Redwood.

    Ocean? Nah - that'd be like Mavericks again. I want Redwood trees!

    Those trees are very nice indeed! But I don't find close-up pictures of trees as spectacular as bigger landscapes.

    macOS Joshua Tree

    It also ties in with Apple's U2 obsession

    MacOS "Walrus" with the slogan "Plenty of fat, light on substance"?

    Or maybe since the latest releases have been bug infested messes, how about a bug related theme like "Mac OS Cockroach"?

    Or maybe since it's called a "premium" or "luxury" brand how about "MacOS Diamond"?

    Followed by "Even Higher Sierra", "Can you believe how High Sierra is?" and lastly "Highest Sierra"... Then "Nope, I was wrong, this must be the Highest Sierra". Then macOS Redwood..... And then "Because I got High Sierra"

    Is it really relevant what it's called? It's not like any of the last few releases have added a single memorable, useful or time-saving feature. Mostly just a new wallpaper and new bugs. But I like Redwood though, but secretly prefer Even Higher Sierra.

    "And now one more thing...introducing Highest Sierra. Why did we do this? Courage."

    For real, I want Sierra-117 because he was my man back in the day.

    10.14 Copland

    ...just to remind everyone that OS feature creep is not a good thing, esp. when you’re most in need of bug fixes.

    A shorten version of "MacOS Angeles" also sounds cool, again after another national forest too.
    For a burb name i kinda like "MacOS Santa Ana"
    I could see them using "MacOS Mojave" or "MacOS Tahoe" tho
