I personally agree with Luigi that the name should not be a generic name, specifically to not get multiple confusing results in search engines.

Like the name selfie..but it will be nightmare finding the app in google if looking for selfie

Can't we really find something that
- doesn't have a "k"
- is not a generic name?

Generic names are bad for many reasons (including, but not only, when you look
for information about the program on any search engine).

That said, I'm not stopping the renaming (even if I dislike Selfie), I'm not
anyone here. I suspect someone else will poke again in two weeks and ask again
why it was renamed this way, though.
