What's in a name?

The comms team have been putting their creative thinking caps on to come up with a name for our new Google Apps for Education platform. Here's some of the candidates so far (good, bad & ugly!!):
CathCloud
EduCloud
Cirrus
Nimbus (both types of clouds)
Cloudmail
CloudCom
Cloudshare
Saint Cloud
Cloud of Unknowing
Gas
GasCloud
iLearn Apps
iShare Apps
CLAPS
Schoogle Apps
Skoogle Apps
Scoogle (Sydney Catholic Open Online Google Learning Environment)
Scoogle Apps
CLASS (Catholic Learning Apps for Sydney Schools)

I like "Scoogle" or "Scoogle Apps", although it does sound a bit like Scootle. A few others like CloudShare, which is fairly generic but encompasses the ideas of collaboration and sharing that we want to convey.

Sally McDowell also had the brilliant idea of putting the CEO Flame logo in Google colours - can't wait to see what that looks like! All in all, very exciting!
