It turns out that "Freedom Box" is such an excellent name, other people
have come up with it as well. Emmet Hikory just pointed out on IRC that
there's an existing commercial project called FreedomBox.

It would be prudent to avoid name clashes.

Time to paint a bikeshed!

Please suggest a new name. I nominate Tom Marble to be the judge and
final arbiter and that he will pick the new name and announce it on
September 30.

If I may suggest some criteria: the new name should have few hits on
Google search (less than ten thousand), should not be offensive in any
known language, and should be reasonably easy to type and pronounce in
most cultures. 

It might be a name that gets translated to each language (e.g., "Freedom
Box") or one that stays the same in each language.
