But, is there any official request from the true devteam ( ;D ) to think of new names here?
It's a community driven approach, and with this many post I think the community is speaking :)

I think anything resembling the Mambo word structure should be careful ... i.e. Mango, Jambo, Jumbo, Prado.  Since we can't actually USE Mambo I think a clean break is needed.  We have to rebuild the brand... we don't want it to look like we just picked something similar.

oh please oh please oh please

no made up names or acronyms.... they're hard to brand, hard to sell, hard for people to pronounce, and hard for people to spell.  not to mention they have a shelf-life of about 2 days.  the dotcoms went through that phase (webvan... um... didn't they sell groceries?)

we should pick a word that evokes an emotion from everyday users... mambo was great, it sounded fun and exciting.  I actually picked Mambo over other CMS's in the begining because the name was cool, the brand was fun, and the administrator backend wasn't a bunch of text links and techie looking.  Mambo or WYSIWYG-CMS... oooh... lemme think.

:(???My preferred names? :o No... if to list my preferred names, it would be much shorter, probably listing only those I suggested :-\

Some are removed due to "negative" or "unpopular" feedback from the posts here and some logic like to break away from Mambo.. Hence names like Mambo Open Source, Tango, MOS (initially I suggested this too).. are "filtered" to shorten the list.

And also many people don't add to the list I created, how can I keep track of fast moving thread like this :'( :-*

Would you like to help me complete the list, sc00zy?  ::)

I think the name should be easy to be pronounced, not have more than 2 or 3 syllables. It would be nice if it has a friendly and open character based on our community.

Yes!  I agree!  Maybe something like tomfoolery or frolic!  On second thought... maybe not those exact words ;)

Or just start off with the last Mambo project code name:

Titan

Just my 2 cents.

I think it's better without "open" in it. Words like "open" and "cms" should be avoided while picking a new name just because it is to obvious and not very original to use that words. There are so many projects with the words free, open, cms...

alright, my opinion is, Lets totally get away from anything that sounds  like Latin Music.

I pretty much like Blues myself anyway :)

I nominate 'Unity'  for the name. Inspired by the nickname of one of the users here :)

its short, sweet, has a meaning that relates to our community being unified, etc. etc.

I say.. I love that name......hahahah

I think you should name it after an animal... 

Ideas:
Frogs
Turtles

of course use a devation of the animal names name.. 

I love the name of 7-ups new drink  "Frawg"  clever.... 

just an idea. 
You are not your job. You are not how much money you have in the bank.  You are not the car you drive. You are not the contents of your wallet. You are not your f!@#ing khakis. We are the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.
