Sorry, we (LibO community) have already discussed, yelled, screamed, 
fought, negotiated, voted, tried to pay votes and to buy votes, 
threatened and finally all agreed (well the majority did) that the name 
was just fine. Yes, you can still find some dissenters, but, by and 
large, the overall consensus was that the name was OK and great.

So, it is called LibreOffice and some are calling it LO or LibO (I 
personally call it this). We have gone through the scenarios of how to 
pronounce it for the English members, but the latin speaking members do 
no seem to have any problems with its pronunciation. And I think, the 
general feeling on this is, just pronounce it the way you think is right.

I think we went through this stage as well, if I remember correctly.

Hope that helps.
