A name for a majority AI colony

I've been making up sample colonies for my players to interact with in my homebrew setting of EP. One of them I'd like to be a colony of sapient and advanced AI that have broken away from transhumanity. I'd like something to be telling of their computerized origins, but I can't quite think of anything yet (besides something like '/.Root'). Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Maybe if you were to give a bit of background on the colony, something more fitting would come to mind.

That's fair. In truth, I

That's fair. In truth, I haven't really thought much beyond "city-state of AI". For the campaign I'm running, it has humans aboard an ark ship that are colonizing a new planet far away and cutoff from Earth. The AI are unbraked computer sophonts that have, much like Zero One in the Animatrix, left their masters and moved on to a new area. So they are a bit of a diaspora of automaton refugees settling into their own area on the planet.

Thanks again for the help so far.

How about Synchronicity?

How about Synchronicity? Simple, elegant, and it's even got the word "city" built right in.

All good names have multiple meanings. Or are Puns. Mostly Puns.

Lacking detail on specific social elements:


Something created out of components, a collection of individuals come together to express, promote, pursue and defend common interests, and a basic programming language.


Pun on C (Programming Language, Hard Drive access) and Shell (Operating System), and Something that is Alive, Strong, Beautiful, that Grows, and is created to protect something vulnerable and precious (AI Society/Rights).

In the past we've had to compensate for weaknesses, finding quick solutions that only benefit a few.
But what if we never need to feel weak or morally conflicted again?

CS jokes!

A Lisp based OS colony could be named {{{{}}}}

An SQL colony might be named Global Variables
