This program doesn't have a real name! #10
I am very picky when it comes to names, so any and all suggestions are welcome. The more the better. Here are the criteria that I have in mind, but if you have a really good name that breaks any of them, go ahead:
Last but definitely not least, I'm looking for the magical X-factor that makes the name appealing, memorable, and roll off the tongue nicely.
Words from other languages are fine. In fact, I would have named this program "Haraka" ("Motion" in Arabic, thanks Bassam Kurdali) if it wasn't a registered trademark and the .org domain was available.
I suggested "Dopey" on Bassam's blog. To quote myself: 'I’m inclined to like the name “Dopey”. It refers to animation both in terms of dope sheets and a reference to a specific classic 2D animation character. And as a bonus, it’s got a tinge of self-deprecation… after all, this is animation; we don’t want to take ourselves too seriously.'
