For possible etymological inspiration, let's talk about why modRana is called modRana.

The modRana project started back in 2010 as a fork of Rana, which apparently means "moon/wanderer" in some foreign language according to the original author.

As my fork was a modification of the original Rana software I've called modRana. But there is also another reason - there was traditionally a lot of blue color in the Rana/modRana GUI and blue translates as "modrá" in Czech. This is the second, kinda hidden meaning of the name, which can be approximately translated as "the blue one" in Czech.

@Fellfrosch try using the "indicator", including the white dot, already as the outer icon layout, and include the earth icon as background. I think that could look quite nice.

(Don't know if you understood what I mean... and I better not try to draw anything, I wouldn't want the forum to implode or something)

Just a quick and dirty job...
If rinigus prefers that i make a neat job. In my eyes the world looks now like a disk. Better to say a compact disk

Or follow the traditional Linux naming convention (mutt, pine, vi, apache, ant, git, xxd, anjuta...) and make up a name that has nothing to do and gives no indication of what the application is for.

I like Weego because it looks like the Wario of Meego, an OS that fathered Sailfish. It also stays close enough to WhoGo and Here WeGo, which is good to acknowledge where are the roots of this fork.

That made me laugh. Just have a look what wee in english means.
Even so I find it funny, WeeGo is a NoGo

Damn, forgot about that. Stupid Anglo-Saxons! Seems however that it is more often used to describe something tiny (no, no that) or yell excitement (Weeee!) than as a synonym of you know what, isn't? I'd happily travel with my wee Jolla and Weego app.

(Yet I found at least two other brands named Weego, one for products to carry babies, one for portable batteries; and no, I don't think they are related and meant to power your babies on the go).
