Finally! Something different :P
Have you read Michael Beckwith's post titled F9 theming [1]?
It suggests that the theme should represent freedom (since the current theme 
is Infinity)...
So I thought of Naming F9 based on that too... I did some research on the 
internet, and I found this [2].
But, since we just can't call it "Bald Eagle, I looked on wikipedia [3].
In the synonyms, there's a name in Latin that goes back to 1766, which 
is "Falco leucocephalus", but since that is too long, I thought that calling 
it Falco is just right! It'll be an Eagle :)
What do you think?
