Hi Jesper,

I agree that a new name would not be bad.

First I thought of Kalbum, but this name is already taken. So I searched 
a little bit further and I'm coming up with the following name:

  -- Kaleidoskop -- (alternate spelling: Kaleidoscope)

While everyone of us knows what a kaleidoscope is, few know the real 
meaning: it's "beautiful image viewer" in greek. I guess that when 
somebody is using KimDaBa, they want to view (and show) their beautiful 
images. And then, also, a kaleidoscope always shows new combinations of 
items, which is also done by KimDaBa: first see all photos taken this 
month, then, since one of them shows aunt Anna, you can switch the view 
to see all photos of aunt Anna. And then you come across the wedding of 
your brother, and here you go. Maybe it's a little bit far-fetched, but 
why not?
