How about

- Fargo
- Izzard

I also liked the previous suggestion

- OGMA

I always thought 'Basilisk' sounded cool.

Here's another idea for changing the spelling. 'Phenyx' or maybe 'Pheonyx'.

Oh, and here's a link for other mythical creatures:

Lisko
That's lizard in finnish. Probably derivative of basilisk.

Hey, while I'm on it, maybe a better one would be Sisilisko, that's the small and quick lizard that can drop off its' tail in a tight place. :wink:

Very good !

I also thought about 'Morilla', but that's too offensive towards Mozilla.....

Raptor - would be nice, but it would also mean looking for trouble with Symantec. It's also the name of the successor to the F15 Eagle...

I'd like Daedalus, but I think it's also taken.

What about Phaeton - you know, the guy who drove the chariot of the sun and set the world on fire?
