How about
Consurgo : Latin for "to stand up, rise up / to arise, break out".

Better than any reference to Phoenix because this is not a rise from the Ashes. It is more like a breakaway. Sounds much better than the Jimbo (wikepedia?), bimbo, jambo, rambo type of simpletons.

And stop the unpronounceable name flow like os.wop ...dotdot.free. The application formerly known as Mambo is not for techies only  ;)

Looks good from branding point of view also...

"palladum" and "paqua" are likely to be mispells of "Palladium" and "Pasqua"

Also I'd like to say that I like best OSOM.

In addition to the constraints given by the core team and others (see Summary) I'd suggest not to use Acronyms. I also agree with many voices, stating that the main website not necessarily has to have the same name as the software (also it is nice to have it). And in my opinion, OpenSourceMatters is quite a good name for a site which may also host other open source matters in future.
And to stick with simplicity, clarity, and style of OpenSourceMatters (and because I have no imagination ;)) why not call it OpenSiteServer. Where, btw., I could not find any trademarks or registered sites for. (Added to the New Name Whois)

How about Mambino?

It shows Mambo heritage, it's similar than "bambino" (which suggest a "new generation"), it sounds nice and it's written the way it's spoken. Oh, and the last time I checked mambino.org was free!

.OSM or dotOSM

Post by AlexLab » Thu Aug 25, 2005 3:02 pm

I propose such really simple name for this really simple CMS (also known as Mambo):

.OSM CMS or dotOSM CMS

dot & basta. Let the real work begin.  8)

We all already got tired! Talks will be enough! It is time to begin to work!

For example, to make v4.5.3 stable and to release it (maybe like v1.0 or to continue tree 4.5.x) :(

Right, whilst the submit function is still open, i'm not going to be adding new names to the database. Saves me effort :)
Yes, I know you can't submit a definition for your domain. At the moment I think the names can speak for themselves. Of course, if you really want a definition adding then PM me. Thanks!

Oh, btw, added the definitions and (x)reasons from CircleFusions list... no sense in letting good work go to waste!

I haven't read all of the 497 posts in this thread (nor will I of course), but I am wondering about two possibilities I've not seen mentioned here. Forgive me if these have already been discussed.

1. Hire pros. Beginning from the top, start calling the best Marketing and PR agencies out there that work with tech companies and ask them if they'll help come up with a new name and other branding for this operation and how much that might cost. Just for example, someone like Chiat-Day could probably produce an extraordinary list of conceptual names in very short order.

They are very right-brained with these things and they do it well. They could also resolve domain, trademark, graphical design and other issues as well as produce a plan to assist in bringing forth the new product and associated organizational entity. I would venture they could do it all in considerably less than thirty days. You never know, you might find a fine agency that would do the job for little or nothing.

2. Ask Miro for the rights to use the Mambo name. You could point out to them how doing so on their parts would be well received by all and would probably earn them a certain amount of forgiveness with a community they seem to have alienated considerably. This would also have the additional benefit of providing them the opportunity to change their CMS version's name to something that might now be more appropriate for the future ...such as Limbo, which is where it seems to be going.

Just a couple of thoughts, the latter of course not being quite so serious.
I used to have a life. Now I have nameservers.

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)

hey guys,
was just thinking about the direction the community evolving to and how mambo is extending into greater and better things (like the public sector, etc) - so... what about interactCMS (.com & .org available) or interaktCMS (.com & .org also available). not my final vote though - only just came across this post, so need more time to think  ;)

Ayllu - Quechua word of the Culture Inca

Molecules that the indigenous community forms. The ayllu already fulfills the function of cell. Assures the life of the social complete organisation assuring the own internal vitality.

The life is not but the harmonic unit of the cells that multiply and are organized. The ayllus multiplying organizadamente they created the Tawantinsuyu... The members of the ayllu live without hurry and without pause, without competitions or petrified hierarchies, without fear of disappearing, because others will assure the communal sobrevivencia where nobody is indispensable and they all are necessary.

Neither in the universe nor in the ayllu the individual exists. The society was before that the individual human being. Nobody said: I am going to take care of alone me, does not import the ayllu for me. In the Tawantinsuyu had been so absurd as if the leaf was saying to the plant: you do not matter for me, I am going to take care of alone me.

Just a few...
Carion (pronounced, Carry on - I know, too cute) - Prime - Relevance - Relavant - Pure - Sheer - Post, and then add a 'CMS' or 'Server'.

Or something slightly more ethereal.... LuminOS - as in Bright, Brilliant, Luminous.

Ayllu - Quechua word of the Culture Inca

Inside the Ayllu there exists also a structure of participation, leadership, incentives and mechanisms to guarantee your good and permanent functioning. Consequently the Ayllu or community is a supplier of social, moral and spiritual well-being in horizontal form without leaving content to the discrimination, individual greed, differences or preferences between his members. One is a part of the community and the community is a part of one.

Ayni, Minga O Minka - Quechua word of the Culture Inca

It is the reciprocity between members of the Ayllu or community for the common good.

For the scope of the total harmony in all the levels associate economic, the concept of the Ayni or Minga had to be fulfilled by own will or by mandate of law. The basic Ayni more was practised between families, communities, peoples, then to go on to regional or citys levels. Reciprocity is the concept (what) and Ayni is the way of applying this concept (how).

For the Andean man, the Cosmos / nature always worked and always it will work based on the Ayni. For example, the land feeds to the plants, which in turn generate oxygen which supports the life of animals, which also fulfill specific functions doing that fulfills a total harmony. Any element of the nature GIVES and RECEIVES to contribute to a common good, THE LIFE in harmony. It was the "Sapa Inka Pachakuteq" who incorporated these laws of the nature as fundamental basic laws in order that they were applying in the Tawantinsuyu. The result was the economic automaintenance in all the corners of the kingdom with provisions that were guaranteeing the well-being and high nutrition of each one of yours habitants.

I am not a Mambo user but got a bit involved via a person who used a script I wrote.

How about something like QWILLA.  I Got it one evening while playing around with variations on Zilla and substituting W for U in 'Q' words.  I would donate the .com.

No TM issues there.
