Suggestions for a Scala mascot


This is a follow up of this twitter discussion:

I compiled a list of proposition we have so far:


I don’t think you had Scalist in the list.


Scala + programmer = scalp


hey, if Microsoft can have a paperclip, we can have a staircase. He’s like a red slinky.


Female Scalana, plural Scalani.


Ok, I have a cool mascot, wait for it -----------------------------> scalpinist. It’s like alpinist - got it?
As was mentioned before in russian language we already have mascot for Scala programmers which have a quite similar idea:


I’d say Scalaist
Or, we could always call ourselves Underscores :wink:


I think that name is reserved for Miles’ employees.


It’s a bit of a lowly name anyway. Maybe we should just be the 'scores
