Well while everybody agrees that the name is so bad that basically
anything else would be better, there does not seem to be consensus on
which one to pick. I do understand that this frustrating and fruitless.

So what do we do now, roll a dice to choose new name?

Or do we ask BFDL[1] to choose the name?
