E4/Renaming Eclipse RCP

It's possible that Eclipse RCP may be renamed and rebranded as part of the e4 effort. Comments related to this should be added to bug 277947. This page has been created to display the suggested names in a single place. It can be hard to dig through the Bugzilla comments to find them.

Name Seeds

First here are a list of name "seeds", or concepts that may be used to generate names. It's not a requirement that a name reference one of these concepts, but it would be nice.

  • Modular UI
  • Components
  • UI Framework
  • Kernel (for Eclipse)
  • Organic modularity (bees vs blocks)
  • Flexibility (multiple technologies/multiple deployments)
  • Astronomy/Mythology
