    Yes, I was quite disappointed when they changed the name. But then, in German it sounded a lot like "cow" so you have to sacrifice something to cross-language unity :)

    I think that a common name is better than lots of different names. And imagine the confusion as people try to talk about separate currencies with the same name, or the same currency with different names ! The exchange rates were already fixed since 1999, but having different coins was quite impractical. The advantage of having a common name is the psychological effect imho: people realise that they're in the same boat.
