    Thanks for so many friends give us so many good ideas.
    There are some name.You can choose your favorite one as the new
    English name of '国甲‘. We will finally choose one as the offical English
    name.The winner will get 8 '国甲‘ cubes as gifts.


    As you know ‘Type A’ is not a good brand name. The Type A’s Chinese name is ‘国甲‘,It means first, best. The boss of Type A and me want everybody help us to name it a English name. We will choose a best one to use. The new name will be written on the fancy packing box. If we choose your idea ,we will give two Haiyan-memory,two Hiayan’s cube,two Type A II ,two Type A V as gifts. After we get the new name, the old name of Type A will not use anymore. The Chinese name and logo will never change.

    As you know we have named the new product as Haiyan’s cube. This name will never change.

    Thank you very much.

    According to StefanPochmann's advice,for the justice,I will not count the votes for the new register .

    Alpha Cube sounds great.
    Better than type A.

    Does it mean that the Type A will change or it will be the same?

    I really like Ace. Its like Alpha in the way it keeps both the letter A and the Chinese meaning (best/first), but it's also simpler and more original. I hear about Alpha this, and Alpha that all the time and it's (not much, but a bit) overused. (along with Beta and Gamma [the magnet warrior XD]).

    Ace I or Ace II just sounds better than Alpha I or Alpha II in my opinion.

    Alpha Cube? Kind of cheesy, about the same as calling it "Xtreme Cube". But I guess it's better than a single letter.
