Neither was Apache the first time I heard it. Or Linux. These days, you either 
pay someone millions or dollars to make up "Accenture" for you or you grab a 
name that has .com and .org still free and hope for the best ;-)

I think it should be Squeak Foundation. The name is already a brand in the 
heads of Squeakers (whose support we'll need first and foremost!) and I think 
it can be turned into a brand for others as well. There are funnier names
