I'm going to go out on a limb and say that I like the name Boolberry.  Also people know about Boolberry now and we will have to start afresh getting the info out.

Berry for short is awesome, I don't understand why we needed to change it.

There is already a Berry coin
But yes Berry sounds good

Boolberry? Boolberry?!?! "That'll be 14 boolberries please." 

Come on! The whole reason this thread was started was due to the backlash to that name, and there's good reason for it because it's a truly terrible name. 

Someone made the point earlier that the name is not so important because even if it starts off as an empty set of syllables it acquires meaning. 

But Boolberry is beyond redemption. Bin it. I don't care about winning BBRs, just don't stick with this mumbledump of a name.

What's more awkward, keeping the name Boolberry or continuing this contest without having promoted it enough? Obviously the dev wants more names.

edit: Berry is still a bit awkward, I was overzealous calling it "awesome", don't get me wrong. Pretend that was actually sarcasm for all I care. I just want this over with.

See my username.

I think we should keep with the Honeypenny idea. Honey is a "sweet substance produced by bees", and the latin word for honey is indeed mella.

From https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20081106172156AAApZQB : "There is a somewhat rare Latin word, mella,-ae, which appears in Plautus' play the Pseudolus, and at least one other author, meaning a mixture of water and honey, sometimes referred to as 'hydromel.'"

With regard to how sweet CryptoNote is, miners are worker bees!

Moneta (a Goddess of wealth)

Moneta sounds good but its too much about money. Same thing as Plutus (the greek god of wealth); perhaps the name should be something more

it doesn't matter, Monero as word already existed before too

Let's not forget Monetas (http://monetas.net/) is an already existing product in the crypto-currency realm. It's essentially a commercial implementation of the long established Open-Transactions (http://opentransactions.org/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page) project. Having Moneta the CryptoNote based coin side to side with Monetas the Open-transactions 'coin' will create a fair bit of confusion.

Please developer, choose a name or make it clear you wish to keep the honeypenny or bulberry pimpernackel etc which everyone will just have to accept (I think most have just gotten used to it by now anyway) so the project can advance towards exchange listing.

hmm you are right, also I think the dev has a good bunch of new names to choose already.

I'm not sure how after all this time they haven't just come up with their own...

I expect Google went through similar discussions- It didn't hurt them.

Boolberry is fine, it's friendly, memorable and the arrangement of the letters would be a logo creators delight - it doesn't need to mean anything. It's also an obvious spelling and has no search engine competition. Some companies have paid millions to come up with something like this.

Some of the suggestions here have been truly terrible, it makes me wonder if Will Self is posting? It just seems to be an opportunity for amateur  linguists to show off a little with the resulting names being patronising, unpronounceable or just arrogant - sometimes all three! We want people to like the coin, don't we?

Boolberry is cool(berry), just leave it alone.

Egina Aureus

Egina: https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egina It was a grecee coin in the greece antique. Egina means turtle
Aureus: https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%81ureo_(moneda) It was a unit mesurable of aureus in Rome antique.

Futhermore Aureus is the perfect number  http://mic.sgmjournals.org/content/149/3/785.full And for that unique and valuable coin the people will look future.
TO FINALLY, As a turtle this currency grows slowly and steadily to becoming a live hundreds of years


Another name maybe can be "AureusNote"
No explanation need(ed)

You reckon?

This is appalling, three professors in Oxford are going to understand it, no one else.

This. Can we just put it to a vote?

Or at least use a vote to help make the final decision?
