Fan programming language name

The name of the Fan programming language isn't ideal for Googling. I want Fan to be successful, but that means growing dramatically from where it currently is. To achieve that will require developers to be able to Google the name of the language successfully. This poll seeks to find out what opinions are of the name, and possible alternatives.

What do you think of the current name - 'Fan'?

13% (11) I like it the name
26% (22) I don't mind the name
15% (13) I'm not fussed about the name
29% (25) I don't especially like the name
15% (13) I don't like the name

84 voters have answered this question.

Do you think the name will affect how Fan grows over time?

23% (20) No, other factors are more important
38% (32) Maybe
38% (32) Yes, I need to be able to Google about the language

84 voters have answered this question.
