Discussion of general topics about Mozilla Firefox
We need to rename Phoenix. The kind folks over at phoenix.com have complained about trademark infringement. Anyone have thoughts on a cool, meaningful new name?

here are some suggestions:
what we need is to get some good names and then have a vote (Al Gore can have a recount)
Hmm seems kid of silly since there are already other internet utils using phoenix as the name.
Anyway, I would like a name in the "lizard cathegory" eg Salamander or something
Some links for Lizard names btw
also snound nice in my ears.

Isn't their company name Phoenix Technologies? If it is, you guys might have a chance at keeping Pheonix as the browser name. Although, companies nowadays like to trademark all forms of a certain name....the bastards.
better steer clear of the *zillas, or else we'll have davezilla moment
off the top of my head
following the mytho-illogical trail
Mercury ? / ( Greek counter-deity) Hermes ?
Vulcan - forging a new browser for the 21st Century ?
we have to be sure it is distinct and not listed(*) already

They both fly, they both look cool, they're both Final Fantasy summons, and Bahamut.com isn't taken by a real company.
Alternatively try Garuda, Adama or Hoshosu.
Newt. They're small, which implies the stripped-down Mozilla. And, they're cute!
LizLite or Lil Liz, Lilzilla, lol
.....or maybe..... "Ragnarok"
nooo, please keep the name Phoenix
I see no reason to change Phoenix's name, phoenix.com has no right to "copyright" the name, it has been used to describe a mythological creature, and has existed long before the .com's and the city of Phoenix.

Stefan's suggestion of Salamander is good, since that keeps both the lizard(-like) and the mythological lines running--the salamander was supposed to be impervious to fire.
How about, "Raptor".
What's the name of that lizard that runs so fast that it can run over water?
How does Phoenix.com have the right to own Phoenix exclusivly as a trade mark. Phoenix has been in use for centuries as methology. That's BULL !
BTW you can't use any planet names either (especially Uranus) as I 've already laid trademark claim to them.

8) Latest Firefox of course
Hate to tell you this, but trademarks are allowed to be _real words_, y'know. Just because stones have rolled for millennia doesn't mean you can expect to call the browser Rolling Stone.
