Exciting new thread!

I suggest 'Anxt'  ::)

Sounds like "Angst" german word for "fear" ;)

It's also the English word for angst  :)

It is actually true that if you search for the #nxt hashtag in Twitter you get a lot or wrestlers... :)
Probably it will be enough to have a commonly used nickname so that I can filter out all the other nxt on the Internet... :)

Try #nxter!

I believe NXT wasn't chosen to conflict with anyone on purpose

Doesn't matter. It's done and the situation is as described.

I am not talking bollocks here. This is a real thing. You might not want to look facts in the face, I prefer to do.

I'm still not convinced, but I'll leave this topic now. You might be technically correct that the creator of a new open source project should do a trademark search before beginning to write code, but there is something offensive about that idea. So I don't think this would be good publicity among open source developers. If this is true, then it would cause them more work and more problems. As NXT has joined the Linux Foundation, I would be surprised if they like the idea either. I haven't throught this kind of thing would be a problem before reading this thread. Maybe this is prevented in practice by the fact that companies that would start suing open source projects would look like idiots.

Wasn't this cripto once coin called "NxtCoin"?. I'm pretty sure no entity uses that name.
That way, no change of name for Nxt cripto-related companies would be needed.

Anyway we, the common people, would keep calling it Nxt...

In my opinion, a different approach could be a good idea to find a name that suits well.

So perhaps this could give inspiration:

O - organic / origin(al) / organized / open
A - artificial / age(d) / alter(ed) / autark(y)
K - krypto / koin / kommunity / key / knot / knowledge / (Kaos)  .... [hard to find but k sounds cool anyway :)]

I think 3 letters should be good enough to be recognisable. So for me, OAK stands for an OrganicArtificialKoin, if I have to explain the letters.
When OAK comes to my mind it reminds me of something green, natural and living. (refers to ernergy saving and the coorporative community)
Likewise also strong and robust in some way. It has roots and all these saplings around. (all the nodes and future childchains)
Perhaps this is a little symbiosis between tech and the environment that can grow togehter.

Sure at the end, most will say it's just a tree and has no common features with crypto.
But it produces the oxygen that we need to live and we transfer back in form of carbon dioxid which leads to a fantastic circle.
(reminds me in an abstract way of the forging fees that float through the NXT ecosystem)

Keep in mind there is this well known company which sounds like an ordinary fruit and I know for sure, some fruits grow on trees ;).

This is a interesting discussion. It's not nice to change the name of Nxt, but I believe it should be done. It prevents us from being sued. And I believe a new name for Nxt will attract more people. Nxt is and was one of the best crypto out there, but somehow it did not always workfor Nxt. I believe Nxt got a bad name because of the initial distribution. I don't think it was wrong, but a lot of people did. It keeps spooking Nxt.

And when we start Nxt 2.0 it is a good thing to change the name. More crypto's did this succesfull, such as Dash and Maidsafe. It will attract curiousity and gives it a fresh start without strings and trouble attached from the past.

But unfortunately everything and everybody using the Nxt name should change there website/twitter/projects too. That is why it's never nice, websites will lose rankings, etc..

New names

I believe the name should be a one word and not a abbreviation. We are no boring corporation. I like these kind of words:

  • TOKEN
  • SCALE
  • PLATFORM
  • SYSTEM
  • BASIC
  • BASE
  • CHAIN

These are very basic generic words. People need to remember, don't misspell and it expesses simplicity and easy-to-use. we need to be a monopoly, a base, the very beginning. Let the word appeal to their imagination.  8)

I suggest not to use something with 'coin'.

Lydian electrum trite . This coin type, made of a gold and silver alloy, was in all likelihood the world's first, minted by King Alyattes in Sardis, Lydia, Asia Minor (present-day Turkey), c. 610-600 BC.

Hence "Electrum"

If the NXT 2.0 proposal is accepted, the rebranding needs to come up with 2 names (one for NXT and one for fNXT, the forging token). Both will exist separately, and will trade on exchanges etc. Probably a good idea to come up with names which reflect this parent/child relationship...

How about Blocknet?

I see there was some ann in bitcointalk but haven't followed the project.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=829576.6000

The name blocknet sounds cool and is somewhat similar to what NXT 2.0 is trying to achieve.

I think we need to keep the name Nxt for the childchain and BASE (or something else) for the motherchain.

blocknet was some kind of umbrella for several coins. similar to supernet. would be very confusing to use that name.

As I already posted in Nxt 2.0 Thread:

I have a name idea for this chain instead of "fNXT" we could call it "meta" as it contains information about the child chain but is not the childchain itself. It is "beyond" the childChains so I think the name META fits pretty well for this.

Metadata is "data that provides information about other data

So META for the fNXT and keep NXT for the childChain :)

It also seems very possible to get a good google ranking for META

Meta sounds appropriate and unique.
Maybe even the tokens could be referred to as Meta or meta nxt / Mnxt
