Change all the name. Truncate it sounds bad for me.Perhaps some acronym as open source like

For me FrEditor sounds like some French Editor Any other name bound to ed/editor/write/writer is mostly taken by other projects.So personally I think that it will be very hard to find a name which would stright invoke the "editor" association. Any other name will need a huge investment to make it popular between people who do not yet know FCKeditor.
I'll add my two cents for all those saying no name change is needed: I deployed FCKeditor in 2 companies, both times the boss/network engineer came over and complained about the name of the folder. One even thought we had been hacked. There's no way a company would send out code to be deployed on client's servers with a folder name like that. Finally now that I integrate fckeditor in my own CMS, it have to use Fred's full name when refering to the editor, and never mention the FCK acronym in any marketing material. So yes, and name change is really needed, and it has nothing to do with 'pleasing the Americans' (I'm French). And by the way, here's a list of english speaking countries:http://www.answers.com/topic/list-of-co ... population
Nice one Saul ;DAlternatively Fred could strike a deal with the clothing line French Connection UK and make a bundle... click on the link below if you're not familar with the fcuk 'peculiar' branding http://images.google.co.uk/images?q=fcu ... a=N&tab=wi
Ah, so it's about pleasing the French, eh? The name change is fine. Fred makes bread from this endeavour, more power to him. If he feels change is needed for wider acceptance, so be it.But it is a nonsense argument to say that because it's "close" to sounding bad, people would hesitate to deploy it. That is plain silly and almost deplorable. After my last post, I deleted the fsck command from all my *nux boxes (you never know, those Men in Black might mistake it for some type of porn), have stopped fingering people, and don't use gasp no more. Heh. Lemme see... yeah here: who | grep -i blonde | talk; cd ~; wine; talk; touch; unzip; touch; strip; gasp; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; gasp; unmount; make clean; sleep;I always get a kick out of that. Don't get me wrong, I accept that people are silly, and thus, it's a semi-valid argument- except that if you extend that logic, we start loosing all kinds of nifty stuff, cuz it's "close", or whatever. Frankly I would not coddle silly-ness of that sort - on the flip, we all need money or barter or whatnot to get by, and that's a cold hard logic at times- as the marketing folks will tell you (they think it's that way all the time). But there is a reason they're called marketoids, and part of it is because of stuff like "FCK". I fear a world that is too Politically Correct, I guess. And acknowledging that FCK crosses the line is just sad, personally, but apparently true. *sigh* Sorry to hear that we are such a silly people. It keeps getting pounded into me, yet I have trouble believing it's true.Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. - Einstein/FranklinThe reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man. - George Bernard ShawEh, I get it, and it's cool, but if we have to put out a press release, can we use wisnick's idea and say the name change was to encourage participation, and totally disregard the fact that some people have problems keeping their minds out of the gutter? I'd hate to encourage that kind of thinking. There are already enough limits on us as it is! Fuck!LOL! Good stuff, and point taken- and proffered.XD
In the same line of thought, maybe 'Sylla' refering to 'Syllable' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syllable). Personally I don't think it sounds as good as 'Cune' and sounds feminine, but its also short and easy to remember/pronounce. Unfontrunatly it seems to be a common last name (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Se ... arch=sylla and http://www.google.com/search?q=sylla)
Sorry, that sound just 'Silly' to me
'Creole', refering to Creole language ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creole_language ), but the word is used quite often ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creole , http://www.google.com/search?q=creole ) and, again, not sounding that nice.
To pick this up again (altough not sure if it's still in the planning)What about Cune?Refering to Cuneiform script (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuneiform_script)and not really meaning anything else (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Search?search=cune , http://www.google.com/search?q=cune)
Such a name could be compared to the new name of Gaim, Pidgin ( http://pidgin.im/ , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pidgin ) which I find brilliant, although I first had to get used to it for a moment.
Although it seems dead there's already a CuneAform editor http://cuneaform.mozdev.org/home/index.htm
The name is not bad, but still to talk.There are some showstopper issues:http://www.cune.com/http://www.cune.org/http://www.cune.net/ (Owned by Concordia University)
The "other" small issue is that in the czech language čuně means pig.cune - pigcune - pigletcune - goopcunik - piggycunik - grunteras of the english czech dictionary
Maybe then:qune (but used quite often: http://www.google.com/search?q=qune)then perhaps: Qoone, quna, qoona, qunu (this latter is also taken http://www.google.com/search?q=qunu)Was thinking about 'What You See Is What You Get' and when you prenounce parts of it you could say things like:Wayoo (used http://www.google.com/search?q=wayoo)wayoocwayoogyoogedsome others:ceegle@it||dye (edit or die, edit-or dye, editing and coloring... oke, just a joke)
