Subject [jira] [Commented] (PODLINGNAMESEARCH-8) Establish whether "Apache Stanbol" is a suitable name
Date Wed, 11 Jul 2012 15:56:35 GMT



- Seamen Techs
- Endelea
- Oriń•alko
- Null-A
- Gosseyn

One evidence is that having a world pronounceable  in english would help even if it's an alien
world like for NGinX (engine X), Solr (solar) or twitter. The other evidence is that there's
no rules to create an opensource project name. The community adoption would come will success
stories in the favourite newspaper of your CEO and geek events around our favourite tool.

We can take something that's sounds like semantic as Seamen Techs then  decline the ocean
theme for new modules naming convention.

To give an exotic touch we can also use African like Endelea (Continue) or esperanto like
Oriń•alko (Orichalcum). Create a naming convention is harder and the relation with semantic
is less evident.

We can use some SF related word like Null-A or Gosseyn

None of those have a trademark or a domain registration.

> We have to do some investigations to ensure that "Apache Stanbol" is a suitable name
for a TLP. People should start searching on the Web and add their findings as comments.
> We should state:
>  * Evidence of the degree of open source adoption for the proposed name.
>  * Evidence of trademark registrations for the proposed name.
>  * Evidence of the degree of branding usage of the proposed name on the world wide web.
