What do you think Android N will end up being called? (poll results)

Keen observers of the Android ecosystem will have this one down cold by now: With every major Android release, Google goes for a name of a dessert. Not only that, but the names follow an alphabetical order, which explains recent releases like (J)elly Bean, (K)itKat, (L)ollipop, and most recently: (M)arshmallow. There's no doubt that at some point this year, we'll be talking about Android N. But what will the N stand for?
and asked for your input. Instead of including branded confectionery (like Nutella, as many of you pointed out), we decided to steer clear and focus on sweets that won't require a massive licensing deal with a major chocolate producer like Ferrero. After all, out of 11 major named releases so far, only one (KitKat) was the result of such a deal, with two major updates having arrived since. In other words, there's no reason to believe that just because Android KitKat happened, Android Nutella will. That'd be rad, though.In keeping with traditions, we listed as many desserts as we could find information about,
In any case, the number one choice among readers was Android Nougat, with the lion's share of votes (~62%), followed by Android Napoleon (~15%) and Android Nut roll (~11%). Android Neenish tart (.16%) ended last. Here's the full split:

Yes, Nutella wasn't given as an option, otherwise it would've been at the top with high votes.

Nougat is probably the most logical selection. I doubt Google will team with a name brand again, granted the KitKat name was used without having to pay royalties.

Or perhaps, Android Nutcase... Possibilities are ENDLESS!
