my last proposition:
Phebex
it is similar to 'Phoebe' and google returns 3,600 hits only so it's very unique :)

Here is the short list. I will setup a poll once i can trim this lot down:

UfoX - ultra fast operating system
POrtEX
SLAPX - slack portable
JAX - just another X
JamX - just another motherfuckin X
EagleX
PLOS - portable linux operating system
slack2go
EOS
Relax
Proteus - god of the sea who is capable of changing his form at will
Fx
Xcalibur
Phebex

Fanthom has a good point about entering the name into google and seeing how many hits it gets. We don't want to be lost in a see of hits with a name such as SeX. I really like UfoX but ofcourse that would also be lost in space.

Finally Proteus from phantom pleases me quite much. But I think the name has been used already.

We could add a particle, for example PROTEUS GPL, or use the french name without an accent: PROTHEE, or change some letters to get the same sound but withe different letters from beetles to BEATLES, so maybe PROETEUS.

Phoebe is quite good suggestion. I like it better than Phoebex. We could turn it into Foebe. The phebi is a bird, and a real nice one:

EOS is already taken by polish linux distribution:
http://eos.freesco.pl/

maybe we could change it a bit as suggested by francois if it will be still popular in the poll.

Hi beny. This is a real good one. It should be added to the voting list.

@beny
phoenixOS is taken:

@Jay
i think it's too late for changing the list. We could only tweak a winner name a little to make it different from existing projects (like EOS).

Can't edit the poll once it has started anyway. Would have been nice to swap jamx for phoebex.

we have a phebex in the poll, so changing it to phoebex could be possible. unfortunately phebex got only one vote so probably wont be able to win anyway. Lets focus on Portex or Proteus (coud be changed to ProteuX or ProteOS) - people, please vote!

Both option do not sounds on Russian well.
And ProteuX or ProteOS - the same

I think better if the name of disro will be short, light - which sounds well.
And better if it will be intenational word - which could have a sense on any language.

Like Remix

BTW, why do not leave it as simple Remix Linux?
