Does anyone have any name suggestions for my colony of Camponotus Pennsylvanicus?

I find the Camponotus genus hard to find names for....... I'm having trouble trying to name my Camponotus pennsylvanicus colony as well.

is that a carpenter ant? taxoned in Pennsylvania....I'd go with an amish name.

like 'the Pennsylvania Deitsche' or rumspringa . ezekials flock. the faithful. or names in amish dialect like...

dawdy's blaeckbier (daddy's blackberry)

there are also loads of names you can pull from "the carpenters" songs, or famous carpenters like Thomas Jefferson or religious references.
or ironic carpentry names like ' the armchairs'

or references to specifics in pennsylvanian history or ecology. 'the liberty belles' (pun)


or you could just give up your dreams, call them schrute farms and except ridicule for naming them after a TV show....not from me.

3 Solenopsis I/X
