Ah well, just wanted to say that I like the name Firebird - and that I
dislike FirebirdSQL because it sounds too much like MySQL and ProgreSQL
(which is kinda stupid to pronounce anyway)...

I think that a lot of people already know Firebird (by its name)... So why
not stick with it?

And no, it doesn't have 'base' in it, like dBase, Sybase, DB2 etc... Also,
no SQL like MS SQL, MySQL, ProgreSQL etc...

But neither does Oracle have 'base/data', or Advantage, Paradox, TeraData
(Data? ok) or FoxPro... just to name a few.
