My only objection is against the process of name finding.
Boudhayan, please choose whatever name you like the most and go with it.
Please stop asking other people for objections because you will never
reach unanimous assent (not only in KDE, but in any community larger
than 1). It's good manner to ask people for their opinion (which you did
with the first message in this thread), but once everybody had a chance
to make himself heard, you, the thingy's maintainer, have to take the
decision (and stick with it).
It seems, that you like Selfie the most. So, I suggest that you run with
it and stop this thread that's getting sillier and sillier by the
