Out of this list, "GNU DAWN" (GNU Distribution Awaiting a Name) is my
clear favourite. It's extra clever with both the funny expansion of DAWN
itself (especially funny if it still carries that name twenty years from
now ;-) ), as well as the well established wordplay with GNU/new. The
word(s) it forms carry a very nice meaning too: invoking a pleasent
mental picture in itself; and moreover in a way indeed quite fitting for
the role in the GNU project :-)

Some of the others (including Guixotic) are quite clever/funny too, but
generally more awkward in various ways, and/or less interesting in the
long run IMHO...
