I voted for Proteus (one choice).

- Arsia would be a good alternative, but I wanted to give a stronger preference to Proteus.

Why I did not vote for the remaining choices:

- Atlas reminds me of Atlassian, the bug tracker software company.

- Titan: I think the name is too common, there is nothing to attract your attention.

I voted both for Atlas and Titan. Both of them are quite good codenames in my opinion.

Is it safe to assume that Sym-Bionic Titan and Teen Titans has nothing to do in influence the poll results...
:P

It would be nice to know the reasons for these names, their origin, with reference links.

We know (at least, most of us) the reasons why of Olympus, Ascraeus and Rhea.
Basically big mountains in the deep space.
I guess all of this names belong to a sort of "to be continued" thing.

In this case.. well, let me ask you all to be more creatives. :)
Want to compensate me for my interest? You can.
You can pm me only in case of request for paid job. Thx.

Arsia is a mountain on Mars (Arsia Mons) nearby the previously used Olympus Mons and Ascraeus Mons.

Atlas is a one of Saturn's moons (Atlas (moon)) as is Rhea which we're using for 3.2.

Proteus is one of Neptun's moons (Proteus (moon)).

Titan is also one of Saturn's moons (Titan (moon)).

Of course some of these names also have a meaning in Greek mythology. ;)

Woops, thanks Marc. :)

In Greek mythology, Proteus Is A sea-god

In Greek mythology, the Titans are children of Gaia (Mother Earth) and Uranus (Father Sky)

I don't know why, but I vote it Proteos.
I agree that Titan is too common.

well i voted for Arsia (Mons) because it's another mountain on Mars, and it's right next to Ascraeus, the previous phpBB release codename. Image ;)

Marc posted the origins of the names and the links a few posts under 3Di's.
Is there anything else about them that you'd like to know? :)

If you know why phpBB went these Codename's way, then it would be a nice story, what to read :D
