Plugin name suggestion thread

The name ml_ipod sucks. Its the name that justin gave the .zip file he gave us all in the beginning.

He gave it that name because it was a media library plugin, and all media library plugins have to have a filename like this:
ml_myPluginName.dll

So, he called it ml_ipod. And we havn't thought of anything better to call it.

So, I'd like you to post your name suggestions here!

Podlinc / -link

Maybe just Link -- short names are kinda cool :p

iPort

Or is there an unspoken rule against iNames?

har har har!

ml_pussiPod

I don't mind the name ml_ipod though, y'know, may as well call it what it is.

I'm at work on a Saturday & it's slow. You may get 20 more posts from me today on this. :-)

Justin thinks llamapod, and although it'd go well with our logos, i'm not too sure...

I'm not to keen on llamapod either. Me, I don't really see what's wrong with ml_ipod. You see the name, you know what it is.

but if you are 'not that techy' then would you really be able to find a plugin for your ipod for winamp??

and if you wanted something aimed for those who arent techy.. you should come up with something like "winamp ipod plugin"

There is no reset button on life... but the graphics kick ass

Just not anything remotely like "ml_ipod"... A user-friendly approach is a good thing, name it something that sounds good and kind of gets you a hint what we're talking about. It will help spread the plugin and boost the feeling of completeness.

The name is a software's clothes, this one's got some soul, so let him show it, and let him be well-spoken. I know it's just a plug-in - what you have to consider here is the functionality it adds. It takes Winamp and brings it above and beyond iTunes both as a music player for the PC and as an iPod assistant. We also have fast online support through this forum, which iTunes doesn't offer. So there should be more hype than there is.

http://www.llamapod.com is available... I could contribute with some webdesign.

Um, xcuse me for the long post, I'm half awake and rambling, it's 3:39 AM here...

Call it iShmael, since iTunes is a great white whale, or call it Ahab.

"i Think iTunes Sucks so i Use Winamp"?
"iPod Ass-Whipper"?
"iTunes Ass-Whipper"?
"iSuck at Naming Plug-ins"?

ml_ipod always seemed good to me, although many of the others mentioned (obviosly not mine) are good too. I personally don't see what is wrong with "llamapod," though. "Ampod" is good, too.

"ml_" means that it's a Media Library plugin, just like "gen_" is a general purpose plugin, "in_" is an input plugin, and etc..

I don't know, the ml_ipod sticks for me, I can't think of it any other way.

Maybe taking the underscore out and making it MLiPod and pronouncing it "millipod" would be kinda neat in a phonetic, geeky, please don't beat me up kinda way.

I don't know about Wipod. It kinda sounds like it's for wiping the iPod db clean. Millipod sounds neat. I get the feeling the name's going to stay ml_ipod. Or the new name may be a surprise.

I like "Ampod".

What about "iAmpod"? Makes the "iPod" more clear and it could sound like "I am pod".
