Making some new Android version names

Cute graphic of android version evolution
From Cupcake to Jelly Bean, Android’s gotten cuter every version.

Android, the open source operating system for phones/tablets, has become really well known for their incredibly cute version nicknames – each version is named after a dessert, and they go alphabetically. So far they’ve had Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, and KitKat (the latest one.)

Google must employ a team of geniuses to make these version names. So I’m going to try my hand at making some potential names. Here are a few I’ve thought of, in order:

  • Lemon Drop
  • Milkshake/Muffin
  • Nougat/New York Cheesecake
  • Oreo
  • Popsicle/Peppermint/Pecan Pie
  • Quickbread
  • Raspberry/Rice Pudding
  • S’mores/Sundae/Shortcake
  • Tiramisu/Toffee
  • Upside-Down Cake
  • Vanilla Bean
  • Waffle/White Chocolate
  • Xocoatl (Aztec for chocolate)
  • Yogurt
  • Zabaione (fried Italian dessert)

Who knows, maybe Android will use one of these? (A guy can hope, right?)
