Help rename & rebrand zec-qt-wallet!


#1

Hello Zcash Community,

As you all know, zec-qt-wallet is probably not the best name for a Zcash Desktop and Mobile Wallet. It was a name I picked randomly, and it has stuck with the project since it’s inception, but now it is time to rename it to something better!

I’d love to get feedback around what it’s new name should be.

We’ll put the most popular names to a poll, and then hopefully pick one!

So, what should we call it?


#2

Zebra Wallet

(sorry kek)


#3

Some ideas,

Z-Wallet

Stripes (like a Zebra)

Equid (also a Zebra reference)

Camo (for Camouflage)

Aegis (type of shield)

Palisade (defensive barrier)

Just a few off the top of my head


#4

EZee (as in ‘easy’, its simple to use and has a ‘Zee’ sound to it)


#5

I thought Zecbook but idk…


#6

E-Zec… 20 characters.


#7

That’s a pretty good one and would get my vote so far from all posted ones…

or in case different names are needed for the different applications:

Z-wallet
Z-mobile
Z-light


#8

Some others:

ZEC Solitude
Z-Solitude
Zolitude

ZEC-purse
Z-purse

Z-bag
Zbag
ZEC-bag

Z-box
Zbox
ZEC-box

ZEC Pay

Zhodler

ZECFold

ZECvallait

Zallet

ZECmonujo

zWallet

ZECallet

ZECWagon

JayZEC

ZuluEchoCharlie

ZerocoinInTheWallet

ASIC mining wallet Kappa

sorry, I am very unprofessional, I know

How about something that doesn’t even try to be descriptive, like ‘people names’ beginning with ‘Z’ (but obviously not named after our tireless leader :wink: )

For example :-

Zac (quite like this one, it’d make the wallet a ZEC Zac)
Zeke
Zane
Zackery (combination of Zec & Hackery…idk)
Zoe
Zephyr
Zeta (Apparently means ‘armored battle maiden’)
Zeva
Zara


#11

The criteria Daira has set forth is a little bit exacting but possibly consider some of these for


#12

Zollars & Zents ??

Still think a Zatoshi should be a ‘Zit’, but that’s just my weird sense of humor at play. :smile:

Edit: A zaddr->zaddr transaction could be ‘Zending Zollars & Zents’
… ok, I’ll show myself out


#13

“Phalanx” is, like, a cool word. Phalanx use shields, plus members are uniform & hard to identify.


#14

my favorite so far :arrow_up:

my least favorite so far :arrow_down:


#15

So many great names! I really like Phalanx.
I also like the simple ZWallet, because we could call the derivative wallets ZWallet Light or 'ZWallet Android` or something


#16

Whats next, a poll/vote to choose from a shortlist? This is fun.

Maybe more players & suggestions first, perhaps @sonya could tweet it…


#17

ZION

apt considering the tech heritage.


#18

Zeru Wallet, came from Japanese pronouncation of zero, easy to remember and spell


#19

Aegis Wallet - Aegis was the shield of Zeus and the shield of Athena
or
Zeal Wallet


#20

Zeal wallet can reduce to “zealot” but again idk
