New CMS Name idea

Post by spignataro » Thu Aug 18, 2005 6:55 pm

I have a few suggestions to rename / rebrand the Mambo content management system software.

5: Chimera CMS
4: Red Dog CMS
3: Sway CMS
2: Reverie CMS

1: CorePHP CMS

How about call it "PalladumCMS"

"The Palladium dance hall on 53rd Street and Broadway. It was called the Home of The Mambo"

Here is the link to the complete article about the quote above.

I think the name should stay along the same lines of Mambo,

Perhaps, Salsa CMS, Salsa OS , Rumba CMS, Rumba OS, or simply, OpenMambo

@Rafa3x 


fully agree, it should not be so far away from the Mambo Name - sad for all the mambo sites and Portals, now we got to get new Domain names - and all at once - Who is the one who fetches the best first  ;D - The race is starting soon I believe
Arent we all a little joomla?

I will be keeping the http://www.corephp.com domain and but if there is a name change and is decided to utilize that a new name then i would be more then willing to give it up.

anyways i think http://www.openmambo.com should be a good product name

Having a name similar to Mambo is actually the opposite of what the developers want.  If you look at the summarized thread, suggestions from both of the major threads have been combined along with guidelines the developers gave.

I would like to nominate the new title, "OSProfundo". 8)

OS as in Open Source.

Profundo. In Italian, 'basso profundo' mean deep bass. In musical terms, 'bosso profundo' would apply to a deep, heavy bass voice with an exceptional range.

In this case, 'profundo' would describe the open source CMS.

OSProfundo...

say it a few times... doesn't that sound good? 8)

Hi folks

I would call the new mambo for:

exCMS where ex stands for:

Exceptional recognition
Exceptional support services
Exceptional professional conduct
Exceptional fast and easy learning curve
Exceptional stable content management
Exceptional features and addons
Exceptional community
Exceptional open source
Exceptional low price - free!
Exceptional value for the public

and so on...

Thesaurus of Exceptional: excellent, outstanding,, brilliant, incomparable, extraordinary

my $ 0.02  !!

Thanks and best regards,

Eirik Vold

i don't no though why people like offering translations of other langauges other than english and using that, the majority of users are using the english language, personally i don't have a clue what mambo stands for, it sounds like spanish dance, but that is it. It should be made easier for people to unserstand the basic meaning in nearly all languages. Compatibility

I once heard that the only words that are undestood in all languages are hallelujah, Coca Cola and McDonalds.

The benefit of OSM's worldwide community is that we can find a clever brand name, like Mambo, that is easily pronounced and spelt correctly by as wide an audience as possible.
