Help me choose a name for the number system!

  1. May 8, 2006 #1
    'm doing a number system right now, and I'm thinking of a name for it, possible names I came up with:

    1. Unknown Number System
    2. Strange Number System
    3. Nameless Number System
    4. Clever Number System
    5. Evil Number System
    6. Professional Number System.
    7. Eximus Number System.

    Of course those names are too kiddy and childish. I'd need something serious that would give my number system a proffesional look. Any ideas?
    any input would be mostly appreciated.

    Yeah, I used your name for my number system. Do you mind if I say that my forum friend came up with this name excluding any other details?

    Anyway, everyone still may come up with some good names for the next number system :P

    Bah, having a cute name makes it look professional.

    Remember that you're talking to a crowd that describes numbers with words like "real", "imaginary", "complex", "rational", "irrational", "perfect", "abundant", "deficient", "transcendental", "normal", "hyperreal", "surreal", et cetera.

    It's simply a set of symbols and operations taken from our decimal number system like exponentiation, addition, and so on, based on 12s.


    Currently I'm working on rounding.
    And need to add more features. It'll take me probably til wed.
    Wait, forgot to draw a zero. It's similar to ~

    yeah, when you look the other way it looks like houses. It's not supposed to, I would rather called them boxes. Houses are quite different than that, but anyway, that doesn't make a difference. Think of some brilliant features I can add,

    Call them house numbers! Or maybe house numerals might be better. (Since you're not really inventing a number system, but a numeral system for writing numbers)

    By the way, you might consider a different diagram for 8. Everything in your picture except 8 and 12^5 can be drawn without lifting your pencil and without retracing any lines. It might be nicer if you could draw 8 in the same way.
