    .....Dan Pawlowski with the name of Tumult
    Tumult pronounced 'tü-mult like '2 mult' means a turbulent uprising - violent agitation of mind or feelings - a violent outburst
    It is the root word that the word tumultuous is based upon.
    I just want to thank everybody for their submissions. There were many great names submitted and it was hard to even narrow them down not to mention picking a winner.

    I wish we had pics. We decided to announce now instead of making everybody wait for the prototype.

    On another note, Dan decided to go to the build house and be there when the first units are made. This will delay the prototypes about a week so look for pictures around the 21st or so.

    Congrats,

    I know what tumultuous means because of the Alanis Morisette song "Thank you India" but I'd never use that word in a sentence.

    15 inch Tumult doesn't really have a ring to it IMO, The name could evolve into some of the following nick names:

    Adire Tum15
    T-15

    The name I had for the driver is The Sumiom (pron. Soo Me Um). Nicknamed Sumi (soo mee)
    The first part 'Sumi' is derived from the word Summit.
    Definition:
    summit n
    1. the highest point or top of something, especially a mountain
    2. a meeting between heads of government(in this case HTF DIY) or other high-ranking officials to discuss a matter of great importance (LFE)
    3. the highest point, level, or degree of something
    __________________________________________________ ____________________
    The second part of the name is 'OM' which is defined as:
    'OM' is a Hindu word that means the primal sound or vibration from which the entire universe constantly emanates. It is the sound of creative departure and return(xmax).
    __________________________________________________ ___________________
    There it is. The Sumiom driver (pron. Soo me um).
    Out of many(summit)comes one that represents the highest level or point (Bass). It is the primal sound or vibration from which the entire universe constantly emanates(OM).
    Congrats Dan!! [​IMG]

    Like I said, there were many, many good names and I picked my top five and sent them off to Adire. The guys there then looked through and picked their favorite.
    I do have to hand it to Martice coming up with the most original name [​IMG] (Hint: it was in my top 5)
     
  16. what were all the top 5 names?
    ...They should win a free Tempest [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    ..as if you guys aren't generous enough
