This is really interesting. I am actually part of a small group of people in the process of searching for a name for a new religion. One of the people in our group found this blog post and shared it with me as a joke!

Your post captures the essence of what is probably the #1 most important thing that we do not want to do in choosing a name. We actually discussed this at our meetings, when talking about a name.

One of the essential aspects of our belief system is to avoid the attaching of subjective negative labels (including by implication) to people and groups of people. This is related to (and flows from) a core belief we agreed upon, which is that all people are valuable, and that when people or a group of people are in a healthy mindset, they treat all people with respect.

It sounds so common sense, but when you think on it you realize how many different things out there in our world, whether religious groups, software development strategies, corporations, have chosen names that implicitly insult people who are not members or choose not to participate / use a technique / buy a product / etc. Most businesspeople would probably agree that a basic rule of how to be successful and retain customers is to never insult your customers. It makes me realize how unaware people are of how they use language, and how to actually be fully respectful of other people!
