You should so name it Panga. :)  Or Pic-anga :) -.-;;

The once grove of splendor,
Aforetime crowned by lilac and lily,
Lay now forevermore slender;
And all winds that liven
Silhouette a lone existence;
A leafless oak grasping at eternity.

That would be too easy to mix up with the program called "Pango" :)

What about: "The Photo Album" TPA!!
The once grove of splendor,
Aforetime crowned by lilac and lily,
Lay now forevermore slender;
And all winds that liven
Silhouette a lone existence;
A leafless oak grasping at eternity.

AFIAK the PHP license agreement forbids the use of 'php' in the name for anything you make in PHP.

Open/Free are both overused in names and rarely are programs named as such successful. Find a cool word that describes your program and use that or if you can't do that make up a word or use a common one like Windows.

Quote from: php.net
Q. I've written a project in PHP that I'm going to release as open source, and I'd like to call it PHPTransmogrifier. Is that OK?

A. We cannot really stop you from using PHP in the name of your project unless you include any code from the PHP distribution, in which case you would be violating the license. But we would really prefer if people would come up with their own names independent of the PHP name.

Why you ask? You are only trying to contribute to the PHP community. That may be true, but by using the PHP name you are explicitly linking your efforts to those of the entire PHP development community and the years of work that has gone into the PHP project. Every time a flaw is found in one of the thousands of applications out there that call themselves "PHP-Something" the negative karma that generates reflects unfairly on the entire PHP project. We had nothing to do with PHP-Nuke, for example, and every bugtraq posting on that says "PHP" in it. Your particular project may in fact be the greatest thing ever, but we have to be consistent in how we handle these requests and we honestly have no way of knowing whether your project is actually the greatest thing ever.

So, please, pick a name that stands on its own merits. If your stuff is good, it will not take long to establish a reputation for yourselves. Look at Zope, for example, that is a framework for Python that doesn't have Python in the name. Smarty as well doesn't have PHP in the name and does quite well.

I know, but you said "forbids".  Their license states they would "really prefer".

I would still defer from containing 'PHP' in the name, though.  I generally try to respect requests like that, especially when they're that well justified.  :)

If you look at it another way, it's rare that programs with any name are successful.

How about "Adelie" and have some Adelie penguin as your mascot.
