This thread is a little old, but Im going to post on it anyway!  Take that.

Mouser makes awesome software! But, he doesn't seem to be able to name apps. Hahah.  One thing I hate is apps with phrases for a name.  Just drives me up a wall.  The one that I hate the most (name of course, love the app) is CH+S.  Just horrid and unwieldy.  I don't like FARR but I could live with it.

I like the idea of a unified branding name thing as suggested above, thats cool to me.  And I really disagree with Mouser that its too late to rename his apps, its never too late.  People do it all the time.

Renaming an application after it has been out in the wild for so long would be a big mistake.  The application have reviews and gained some trust out there.  Renaming them now would be a big mistake.

However, holding a naming contest for future applications would not be a bad idea.  I too suffer from a poor sense of naming applications and usually just settle on something since I hate wasting time on it.
