It all started with a cupcake — Android Cupcake. After Android Alpha and Android Beta, Google has been naming its Android OS with confectionery code-names in alphabetical order. We’ve had Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow, and Nougat so far. That was a mouthful.

Now, it may start sounding like we’re in a bake sale, but you might want to wish you were for this year’s Android O. There aren’t that many treats that start with the letter O. Here are some delicious contenders for Android’s next operating system.

Onion Rings

Chopping onions makes everyone cry, but if there’s any tears coming out of your tear ducts, it’s happy ones. Google has not dabbled into the savory section of treats, but that can change. And if you like it, Google might just put this tasty ring on it.

Ovaltine

Android Ovaltine

Oreo isn’t the only O sweet treat Google has to settle with. A cup of Ovaltine is a good way to settle down on a cold day and it’s also great iced on summers. I wouldn’t put it past Google to call the next OS, Android Ovaltine.

Olive

Android Olive

Android Olive has a nice ring to it, but that’s probably because it’s a cute name to have. Google could be sending us a message with Android Olive. What do we mean? If you rearrange the letters of olive, it can spell out, “I love.” It helps that Bugdroid already looks like an olive!

Obbattu

Android Obbattu

This treat may be flat but it doesn’t fall short on the list of tasty treats to have. A nice treat made from wheat, sugar, and chana dal from India could be a good name for the next Android OS.

Otap

Android Otap

When people mispronounce or mishear it, it can sound like, “Android on top.” It could be a stretch but I’m not discounting the chances of it happening. Regardless, this sweet oval puff-pastry originally from Cebu, Philippines is a great name for Android O.

Omelette

Android Omelette

Google has not named any Android OS with savory food yet. The important word of that sentence is yet. Omelette could be a great beginning to the multitude of savory treats they could call the following operating systems, as much as an omelette for breakfast is a great start to any day.

Obesity

From Cupcake to Nougat, it seems Bugdroid has found its own large cottage made of sweet treats. Android Obesity could be the unfortunate aftermath of all the OS code names that came before it.

Oreo

Android Oreo

There’s no need to wonder. You’ve got to admit: This was probably the first treat you thought of for Android O. And, with good reason. Back in 2013, Google struck a licensing deal with Nestle to name its OS, Android KitKat. It’s tough to tell if they’ll be striking a deal with Nabisco for Oreo this year, but it looks like it’s everyone’s first bet.

Orange Juice

Android Orange Juice

None of Android’s operating systems are named after beverages, but this could be a refreshing first. With the big announcement by late summer, who wouldn’t want a couple sips of cold, sweet orange juice?

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

Android Oatmeal Cookie

This treat is one of the best cookies that could probably send the classic chocolate chip running. Whoever thought of baking oatmeal into cookies (with raisins or chocolate chips — we don’t judge) was an absolute genius. Not to mention, Android Oatmeal Raisin Cookie does have a ring to it.

Google will be announcing new updates and will be revealing Android O at the Google I/O conference on May 17 to 19, 2017.
