Microsoft is gearing up to reveal the next-gen Xbox, currently codenamed Project Scarlett. We're expecting Scarlett to launch as two SKUs, a more powerful "Anaconda" and a more affordable "Lockhart," and we recently exclusively revealed some of the expected specs.

In any case, we have no idea what this thing will be called, save for some vague comments from Xbox head Phil Spencer that Scarlett's name will "reflect its abilities." Could this be in reference to the near-elimination of loading times due to SSD tech? Scarlett's hardware-accelerated ray tracing? Or could it have more to do with the wider platform itself, with Microsoft's push into web streaming services like Project XCloud?

With these sorts of things in mind, what do YOU think the next Xbox should (or will) be called?

Hit the comments below with your ideas and suggestions, and we'll tally up the best ideas in an update this weekend.
