I'm not too fond of the App-Whatever either, sounds too Apple-ish to me.
I don't really like terms such as Store or Market which evocate buying
stuff, I think the main purpose of Mageia-app-db will be to install
free/non-free but free of charge softwares.

I would prefer a name which can be less functional (not necessarily
describing what the software does) but with more poetry :)
If it can be both that's great.
