Although this project has been called Super RISC VII (which is just a joke being 'this ISA is better than the RISC-V') The CPU and ISA actually has no official name! I know in many projects, the CPU, ISA and the project share the same name, I just don't like a big and bulky 3-word name for my CPU. Therefore, I chose 'Dragonfly'. This name actually comes from the ISA's Chinese name, 龙腾. (pronounced like 'Long-teng' or 'Long tum') The characters literally means 'dragon' and 'fly'. Also, this name has a feel of being light, agile and optimized, since that's what dragonflies are, and what this ISA is designed to be.
