What should we call our next supercomputer?
NCAR is in the midst of procuring its next supercomputer, which is slated to enter production early in 2022. We’d like your input on what to name this next-generation HPC system.

Our goal is to select a name that reflects the value of the computational services we provide in support of our users' work in Earth system science. Our critically important services are among the core activities that enable NCAR to provide knowledge and information for the benefit of society, so it's worth giving some thought to what we will call this new system.

The best name will be easy to spell and pronounce, align with our mission, and inspire some strong visuals/graphics that can ultimately become the skins of the computer and/or a logo we can use more generally. Suggestions should not conflict with other supercomputer names (e.g., Aurora at ANL, Frontier at ORNL), so you may want to check with Google that they aren't already being used somewhere else.

Submissions are due by Friday, November 22. You can suggest as many as three names. We look forward to seeing what you come up with.
