Throwing pseudo-random names in the air, again:

Animals:

- Apache Zebu
- Apache Puma

Native American tribe names, in echo to Apache:

- Apache Lipan
- Apache Kiowa
- Apache Piro
- Apache Navajo
- Apache Zuni
- Apache Zenu
- Apache Zamuko

Others:

- Apache Akira ("bright/clear" in Japanese)
- Apache Zeno (Zeus)
- Apache Zen
- Apache Zenith
- Apache Zoe ("life" in Greek)

I like "Apache Akira" quite a lot today.
