Names are important

The feed aggregator is about ready for use (it doesn’t have any of the cool features I intend to include in place, but the basic job of displaying a user-selected set of feeds is covered), but it is sadly lacking a name. I’ve been trying to think of something that a) does not sound like one of the myriad aggregators already available and b) in some way references sorting, categorizing, or interesting collections of things, but am not having much luck. Any suggestions?

  1. Hm. Some terms from classical rhetoric involving the canon of arrangement:

    dispositio
    taxis
    enumeratio
    merismus
    catacosmesis
    chiasmus
    digressio
    epiphonema (my personal favorite)
    complexio

    (You can see what they mean here and here.

    Or, there’s also figures of delivery (another one of the five canons of rhetoric).

    mimesis

    Um. I should probably stop. But rhetoric has lots of terms for arranging things.

  2. I like Complexio a lot!🙂

    I’ll still try to think of other suggestions though.

  3. Other suggestions:

    (some of these are more playful names…)

    Bloggity
    Readeriffic
    Allblog
    NeedFeed
    The Trough (following the whole “feed” pun)

    Hmmm…I’ll let ya know if I think of any more.
