I know this is not likely to change, but it is very hard to search for anything related to this project, such as tutorials or help on SO, since the name of the project is also a keyword in c++. It would help if the project was renamed to something else that is less likely to appear anyway in a c++ context.

Yes, the library itself comes up first. But searching for related things (help, tutorials) is hard. Look at your example search. Most of the results have nothing to do with this library.

I will soon be forking Catch - the next generation version will be C++11 only. I'm going to call it Catch2 - and try to push this name to be used everywhere in the hope that it ameliorates the situation enough.

How about Catch11?

Catch22, because two twos are better than one.

(Not actually serious suggestion)

@horenmar Actually that makes sense Catch version 2? C++ 11? 2 * 11 = 22

TBH, @SoftwareApe, that was precisely what I was thinking when I went with it!
