Re: F9 Name Proposal

I'd vote for a dragon based one. I already named all 3 of my local hosts in relation to dragons. "IceDragon", "WaterDragon", and "FireDragon"

I am aware of these rules, so I'll explicitly say what I meant with my
name suggestion(s) and also add one more:

Nosferatu / Dracula / Draculina / Vampire (whoever)
 * A mythical half-beast, like a werewolf
 * For F-10 (or F-X?) we could use one of the connections to vampires
via many films they were in...

And the promised one

Uroboros / Glaurung / Dragon (whoever)
 * Mythical creature
 * Can be succeeded by any of the heroes, characters, ... from films,
literature, games... (personally I'd follow with Beowulf)
* Uroboros (though the word itself does not sound to me much nice) has
some good connection to Fedora itself, as it symbolises infinity and
unity, in words from wikipedia[1]:

   "It has been used to represent many things over the ages, but it most
    generally symbolizes ideas of cyclicality, unity, or infinity."
* Glaurung is the first dragon ever born in Tolkien's mythology
