I don't see why we need to change the name. The policy says:

"If you compile Mozilla unmodified source code (including code and config
files in the installer) and do not charge for it, you do not need
additional permission from Mozilla to use the relevant Mozilla Mark(s) for
your compiled version."

So if you don't do any changes we can use the name "Mozilla Seamonkey".

Does Mandriva has an explicit permission from Mozilla?

Does Mageia have an explicit permission for Firefox?
