F-star name for Consensus Layer upgrade after Electra

An F-star name is needed for the Consensus Layer upgrade after Electra.
Assumes a cross layer upgrade combined with :elephant: Osaka having Verkle as the main feature.

The consensus layer uses star names for upgrades whilst the execution layer uses Devcon cities.

See: Post-Merge Network Upgrade Naming Schemes

Recent upgrade names:

  • :owl: Shapella (Shanghai + Capella)
  • :blowfish: Dencun (Cancun + Deneb)
  • :european_castle: Pectra (Prague + Electra)

@protolambda has already suggested Fosa (Felis :cat2: + Osaka)

@hwwang advised that Fulu & Felis received support in the ACDC zoom chat (yet another reason why ACD chats need to be exported) and offered ChatGPT-generated proposals

Assuming a cross layer upgrade, any F-star name will be combined with the execution layer name Osaka in a portmanteau (Portmanteau generator), so any name choice should also consider this.

voted for Fulu.
as for the star name, since you mentioned it, Fusaka has a nice resonance.
edit: or Fosaka, considering Fusaka is a branded font type.
