Woodstock needs a new name!

[ #29491 ]
How would you name a new web framework today?

I like "Jifty" and "Catalyst", but those names are kinda taken.
The best suggestion so far was "ReAction".

What do you think?

  • Call me old school but I prefer simple names from the dictionary. How about "paradigm"
  • I bleieve in meaningful names. I have no idea what this thing is. "It's a new framework" is not good enough for me. What are its goals, its selling points? Once you've established that, once I know what you stand for, I might come back and think up a name.

    "Woodstock"? I thought it was an audio related project.

    • Well, "Woodstock" was also my codename for Catalyst before Danijel had the idea for the real name.

      I think the biggest selling point will be that it fixes a lot of design mistakes in Catalyst.
      Things like private/public path mapping are not necessary, the way internal forwarding works is completely counter intuitive...
      And there is a lot more, especially usability will be weighted very high in Woodstock.
  • Operation Blazing Vengeance
  • The world needs another MVC framework like I need another hole. But if I must play this game, my vote goes to:


    It's the old school name for Sri Lanka (yes, a play on the username sri), and Sir Lanka just happens to mean "venerable island".

  • Tempo
    Aegis (I kind of like this one; logo could be a shield with a Perl camel)
    Agave (Ah gah vey)
