elementary OS 6 Name Reveal

This is the name of the upcoming elementary OS 6. In this article, you will learn everything we know about it and what it represents. 

elementary OS 6 Odin is the upcoming name of this Linux distribution. The naming structure of elementary OS releases is obvious, they choose gods from different mythologies. For example, Hera, the latest release of elementary OS 5.1, is Goddess from Greek mythology, wife and sister of Zeus. elementary OS 5 Juno also follows the tradition considering Juno is an ancient Roman goddess, the protector and special counselor of the state.

Origin Of The Name Odin

Odin is a widely revered god in Germanic mythology. You can learn almost everything about Odin on his Wikipedia page. Odin is usually associated with wisdom, royalty, knowledge… Everything that elementary OS 6 will hopefully be associated with.


One of the most important proof comes from the elementary OS GitHub account, which is in my opinion pretty reliable. Under this Wallpapers section, you can find this release.yml file. In that file, you can see the change from Juno to Odin, as a preparation for the future release. This file is available for everyone to see, so you can check it yourself here

Here’s some more proof that Odin is a legit name that could be used for elementary OS 6 release.
