Vote for Maria’s new name

Remember the idea behind renaming Maria, the storage engine? People regularly get confused with Maria the storage engine, and MariaDB the database. We got a whole lot of good names, and here’s a short-listed amount of names (short-listed by Monty Program employees down to about 15), and now its up to YOU to help us choose what the new name should be. Quick, go take the survey.

Voting ends on Friday, July 9, 2010, at 23:59UTC.

The winner will be announced on the first day of OSCON on July 19 2010. The winner walks away with a Meerkat net-top from System76.
