Hi all and greetings from Finland,
here's my take on the list:

+1   I really love the old latam culture and I think that a
hard-to-pronounce name could be a fun thing... But it would be great if we
could make it into late 2012 release (which would be F16 if I counted right)
And then the theme could be something about the end of the world and the
beginning of a new era.

+1   Ancient Rome. This also brings to my mind the movie with Keanu... which
isn't a bad thing ;)

+1   Space is a good place to make themes from.

+1   frogs, underwater worlds and flowers are all fun to make themes from.
and the girls overpowering geeks could also be hilarious

+1   as Gireesh Sreekantan said:
>Orvile Wright - could go with a small glider plane against a vast mostly
empty background indicating that Fedora soars higher!
although we did this already with Moonshine (F7)... I still like the idea

-1   quite close to Leonidas

+1   Sin City and its darkness with cartoon like effects

And as Joost just said:
>>Cimrman>-1: too obscure!
>+1: a lot of options we can exploit
> +1: music association to perfection and high quality.
