We should make them nouns, for example:

A Phrase
A Result
A <Something Database-ish>
A <Something Presentation-ish>

Obviously the app names would not include the "A"...

It's a very good idea.

My proposals:

- Phase (Writer)
"Phase" or Phrase?


My mistake. "Phrase"

- Result (Calc)
- Dato (Base)
Whats a "Dato"?
Dato is like Data, but in Spanish, It's like "Libre" and not "Free"
(play on words)

- DayLight (Impress)
I like the names...

I was thinking if we could change the names in LibreOffice to some that
are more descriptive?  Not only that, but since we are changing
everything else (icons, layout, office suite name), why don't we change
the app names to better fit their purpose.

Writer (I actually like this)
Calc (A lot of spreadsheet work has nothing to do with calcualtions)
Impress (Too bland IMO)
Base (Way to bland IMO)

Compare them to their rivals:

*MS Office:*
Power Point
