MusicBottle/Name suggestions

  • References: flasks, hipsters
  • Pro:
    • I like how it sounds -- Caller_number_six (talk)
      • Indeed; this is the first name other than MusicBottle that actually sounds like a passable name to me, but without the shared-initials problem Ianmcorvidae (talk) 23:44, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Cons:
    • Nothing to do with music, zombies or databases
      • The project only really has anything to do with the first one of those three anyway :) Ianmcorvidae (talk) 23:44, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
    • Maybe such an explicit reference to flask is a bad thing
      • Even if the project switches from Flask the web framework to something else, the name alone isn't too bad; I don't think it's a problem. Ianmcorvidae (talk) 23:44, 1 November 2012 (UTC)


  • What we're using (for) now.
  • Good:
    • Music for MusicBrainz
    • Bottle for Flask
    • Bot-tle (a bit far-fetched, and it's not really that automated either)
    • Can produce decent catch phrases and visuals (bottling music, unplugged, messages in bottles, bottled ships, ...)
  • Not so good:
    • "MB" can be both MusicBrainz and MusicBottle


  • References "music" and is built up like FooBrainz.
  • Zombies eatz brainz, we feed on MusicBrainz data.
  • Zombie has a "z" like in *Brainz.
  • MZ is easily distinct from MB. :)
  • Can easily use the purple/orange theme and is easy to make a visual identity/mascot with/for.
    • Am I alone in wanting to de-emphasize the purple/orange theme? -- Caller_number_six (talk)
      • We do not absolute have to use purple/orange if we don't want to. :) --Freso (talk) 15:13, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
