HELP! We need your ideas for a better name!

There's no denying it - the catchline for this project should be "Terrible Name, Great Logging". Maybe it's time to fix that? Please post your suggestions for a suitable name here.

The project name should capture the essence of using and extending the core System.Diagnostics.

A list of words that seemed suitable: Extension, Annex, Augment, Extra, Supplement, Extend, Amplify, Enrich, Evolve, Space, Bonus, Complement, Auxiliary, Accessory, Support

Some of the ones I thought were more promising:

* Platform.Diagnostics
* Net.Diagnostics
* Open.Diagnostics
* Basic.Diagnostics
* Essential.Diagnostics
* Main.Diagnostics

Initially I had a strong preference for Framework.Diagnostics, but recently I have come to like Essential.Diagnostics (probably influenced by Ivar Jacobson's EssUP).

Thanks Sly, 

Really like those and can see why you like Essential.Diagnostics, however, I also really like Evolve.Diagnostics

It just sounds right, as it represents exactly what we tried to do with this project!

Thanks for the suggestions - stay tuned.

Some suggestions, admittedly, most of them are pretty weak.

  • Plus.Diagnostics
  • Better.Diagnostics
  • Enhanced.Diagnostics
  • Smart.Diagnostics
  • Fun.Diagnostics - is this overstating it ;-)
  • Darwin.Diagnostics - evolve?
  • Midas.Diagnostics
  • Joyful.Diagnostics - a play on your blog
  • Joyous.Diagnostics - a play on your blog
  • Custom.Diagnostics
  • Athena.Diagnostics - Greek goddess of Wisdom

Nice, I like it.

I even toyed with the idea of Super.Diagnostics - poking fun at the way MSFTs prefix everything with Super. I suppose we could go for So.Diagnostics too then :)

What about the following:

  • Lognostics
  • Agnostics

I've always like the word 'Sausage'.

Aardvark is pretty good, too.

"UKadc" (in a phonetically corrupted translation) "You Can See"

  • OmniOculus.Diagnostics

omnis --> latin for every

oculus/oculis -- > latin for eye/eyes

Maybe something like System.Diagnostics.Extensions or Diagnostics.Extensions, much like System.Web.Extensions.
