    I would call it "Bottom", just to make people say the word a lot

    I don't think it will make a jot of difference what they call it. AMD fans will buy regardless, computing enthusiasts will want to get one out of curiosity if they can justify it, Intel fans will buy Intel even if it is slower.

    Could name them after past Buddhas or Dali Lamas or even just after cities in Japan.

    Re: QOTW: What should AMD call its next-generation Zen processors?

    I think the marketing is already being done for them. So many people already know this upcoming product as Zen that they should just keep the name and apply the model info after that like Zen 400, Zen 800, etc. Zen X(model) also has a nice ring to it if they are targeting the enthusiast market.

    Personally I don't see what was wrong with Athlon, but then I prefer Pentium to Core.

    I agree though Zen is fine, much better than Zeppelin. If they do end up calling it Zeppelin then we have absolute, irrefutable proof that being a member of AMD's marketing dept is the easiest ride in the world.
