|I really like 'Phoenix 500'.|
We all know that the mythical bird the Phoenix was a bird that when dead would rise again from the ashes. Look at Dumbledore's Phoenix in Harry Potter.
There was a company years ago that made a Phoenix motherboard that was a replacement for the Amiga 1000. Had lots of modern (then) features like: WB 3.X rom socket, ECS chipset, hard drive connector and so on. Fitted inside the A1000 case so it still looked exactly like an A1000.
This would fit in nicely with the new (risen from the ashes) amiga that is Natami and the number 500 could indicate the first model Ala the A1000 being the first desktop Amiga which was followed by the A2000, A3000 and finally the A4000. Of course with a 500 as the first number then we can go 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500 and so on until infinity.
Or we could start a new system starting with the amazing (trumpet or drum roll intro please) "N500" meaning the "Natami 500".
This is probably a better choice as it is a new computer and the Natami name is important not only for the creators (the Natami team) but also to show those losers at Commodore (version whichever) what they could have had or achieved.
