    Apple is widely expected to announce OS X 10.11 at WWDC 2015 in June.

    Given the recent switch to California-based names, and that we know Apple has trademarked a number of possible names, what do you think OS X 10.11 will be called?

    The full list of known trademarks Apple has registered for includes Redwood, Mammoth, California, Big Sur, Pacific, Diablo, Miramar, Rincon, El Cap, Redtail, Condor, Grizzly, Farallon, Tiburon, Monterey, Skyline, Shasta, Sierra, Mojave, Sequoia, Ventura, and Sonoma.

    If OS X is getting an optimization release like iOS is rumored to get, I think Redwood's a good one. "Built to last."

    I'm going with Sequoia based on gut alone.
    I can't see them ever using Mojave simply because of the Windows Vista campaign.
    Stranger things have happened though.

    None of the above, because the name I'd prefer hasn't been 'trademarked' by them yet.

    As arguably the last lexicographical word in the English language (at least alphabetically), I'd put money on this to be the last ever OS X release:

    When it's the most stable, solid release of the OS, this should be it, as it would be the best, and the last.

    If rumors of "Snow Leopard" treatment is true, Sequoia (National Park) is probably the most apt name. Sequoia is widely considered far less commercial and more subtle counterpart to Yosemite.

    Having said that, I picked Mojave (Dessert) because it implies even more barren upgrade from Yosemite. With draught going on, however, the name may be controversial.

    Interesting.. I could see a Klamath or Yreka (not to be confused with Eureka), especially seeing that Shasta is on the list (Indian tribe, which Yreka is a word in their language, meaning 'north mountain'), and Klamath, also an Indian tribe, and as the river runs through the northern part of CA into Eureka and Crescent City..

    .. though I can see why Yreka would not be on the list (lynchings, Jodi Arias)..

    Seriously though, I could see Redwood as the next logical name.

    As a French guy I must say all these names are very hard to pronounce with our crap accent and I don't know what they refer to.

    Big cats were far easier to say and understand.

    I like San Andreas and Alcatraz, already suggested.

    But also: Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Inland Empire, Downtown Los Angeles, Death Valley, Playa, um...

    Mountain View. (park that tank on their lawn!)

    OK, that's exhausted the interaction of ironic names to names I can remember of places in California. Actually voted Sierra.
