There is a precedent for any naming thing you care to consider, and some  
you would prefer not to.

I am with Jonas on this - I don't think the name hurts or increases  
confusion and it does slightly decrease it. But picking names is always  
painful. We'll never get it perfectly right, but we can always get it  
oh-so-very wrong :(
