    Imagine you have a new design for an encabulator and want to come up with
    a name for the product. The following terms are already used:

    Turbo: Someone used it many years ago on a product that turned out to be
    a real turkey.

    Super: We used this as an adjective years ago and the new one is ~10
    times better than this product.

    Ultra: Someone else used this as a name of a product.

    Extra: Will translate as a spare in some cases.

    Is there another obvious adjective I have missed.
  2. Ultimate.

    You are obviously in superlative overload. The only thing you can do is
    go back to the basics and call it the "plain old". Sales will suffer
    for this product, but you can call the next one "plus" and things will
    start picking up again.

    And fer cryin' out loud be more sparing with the superlatives next time!

    If the target audience is relatively young, "extreme".

    A thesaurus is often a help in such pursuits. Even if it doesn't give
    you the word you want, it may kick you in the right direction. You can
    find decent ones online.

    Hello Geodanah,
    When I drove through Spain for the first time I couldn't stop laughing
    for a while. They had these "Hypermercados". Probably the next step up
    from "supermarket". Thing is, many of them were hardly bigger than a
    mid-size house.

    Regards, Joerg

    Ah, but the new kids have irony. So things that are really good are
    called "bad", "super bad", or even "sick".
