+1 for you
+1 for Graham

IMHO, and it has been told before, is that the name is not a problem.

The better example we have is Apple. Stories tell us that the name was a
explicit decision because it was impossible to find a "good name". Althoug
this story was a lie, is a good example that demonstrate that a simply name
with a really good marketing is enought to grow the power of the mark.

I think that we can start from Mageia, like it evoques the magic world, we
can try to explain that it is that all of us are wanting: easy, eyecandy,
but powerfull and sturdy.
