Written by Michael Larabel in Fedora on 5 January 2009 at 08:14 AM EST. 16 Comments
In early December we shared that it was time for the Fedora community to come up with the Fedora 11 codename. Following that many different names were proposed for Fedora 11, but then after each name was evaluated and went through Red Hat's legal department, the list became much shorter. Now though it's time for the Fedora community to vote for the official codename.

Among the possible names that have received clearance are Indomitable, Blarney, Leonidas, Claypool, Zampone, Euryalus, Duchess, and Brasília. The list of all names proposed can be found on the Fedora Wiki. Once the Fedora community has voted, the official codename will be announced on the 10th of January.
