    It's a pretty major change. Before chiming in here, I'd like you to read up on the meaning behind the name and why I'm considering a change. As I've posted in the when, this is still very much up in the air.

    I'm not crazy about it, but I do like it better than everythingicafe.

    On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being Really Really Hate and 10 being Absolutely Love, I'll give it a 7. It has a certain ring to it and it could grow on me.

    I hate it. I give it a 1 using @Kadelic's scale. I like iCafe, short and sweet. iPopuli reminds me of popo or poop. Just my two cents.

    iCafe is taken and not available. If it was and at a reasonable price, I would have bought it years ago.

    I hate it. Heck, this is even harder to remember. What does it have to do with Apple? The "I", then the sentiment of people chatting.

    Everything sounds much more professional. It's a place to chat about everything "i" in a cafe, which in this case is a forum in a relaxed environment.

    Hmmm... I have mixed feelings about iPopuli. As someone said, you have to give the history behind it.

    And you have to say how to pronounce it. Is it POP-you-lee? Or is it POP-you-lie? Quite sadly, Latin isn't very popular with most folks in the USA.

    Maybe POPE-you-lee? Hmmm...

    iPopu-lie.

    Did you know that I receive press releases from coffee product manufacturers?

    It's ok. I'll get used to it. iCafe would rule, but simple domains are so expensive now...

    I've been wearing my iPopuli shirt for months now and I'm still not sure. I want to love it but it it's not weaving its way into my heart.

    Chris, I know you've checked out lots of names, and realize that many are rejected because of intellectual property issues. How about something simple and clear like talkabouti.com? You could even extend it to your other sites as they too are available. I'm not sure that the name having a deeper meaning is significant or even helpful.
