A name for the FF Pentax. Any Suggestions?

What is an appropriate name for the new FF Pentax? And does it matter? I think the name of a camera means quite a lot to the owner! Some letters have a bad sound in European ears. For example, the letter Z in connection with the well-known Pentax letter K - KZ. This letter (Z) generally has a bad reputation in the composition ZZ. For historical reasons (1933-1945). I am very happy for the letters K and M, and if I was to suggest a name for the new and long-awaited FF Pentax, it could be K-15 (' 15 ' for the year of its release). I could also imagine something more original with only a number: "No. 1" - simply! Any suggestions or comments? Does the name of a camera means anything?

Pentax K-A (K-letter scheme for 35 mm dSLRs), e.g. K-Aii, K-B, K-Cii
(K-number for APS-C cameras), e.g. K-7, K-5ii, K-3, K-2

Or Dave. Anything or anyone you can't pronounce the name of, gets called Dave.

Following the naming convention used with the latest DSLR being K-S2 I would not be surprised if they did some slight variation from that such as K-F1. With the F differentiating the Full Frame
