So, Paul informed me by PM that the winner is:

Open ReVolt !!

(...as a "brand", and that individual models may get their own names, like Cougar.)

EM will be happily sponsoring another mosfet on behalf of the contest winner, Silveredwings. Congrats! (Oh, and feel free to name it too :P)

I know the contest is over, but how about this:

Order99 should get partial credit for coming up with the "revolt" part:

Maybe they each donate half a mosfet?

Mosfets all around!

I'm rescinding the recent win and replacing it with Tango Charlie's latest entry!

Oh man, this contest is like Baskin Robbins, and I'm getting an ice cream headache.

Yeah, I don't remember seeing Order99's post until well after I proposed it, so good job Order99. ...or maybe it was everyone else's other revolting suggestions that did it.

I still like it.
