Subject Re: A new name for Corona (take 2)
Date Mon, 04 Aug 2008 06:56:55 GMT
Doing a quick Google I didn't find anything relevant on Merenque. For 
Chasse I found and The first is some sort of 
shareware/freeware hunting game for Windows and the second is a sales 
consulting firm. I couldn't locate the website of the author of the 
game, just various places it could be downloaded.

Personally, I don't think either of these names would be a problem and 
would be happy with either one.

I kind of like Merengue. It makes me think of Lemon Meringue Pie :-) .  
Meringue is also light and airly, sort of like a Cocoon. Did you notice 
that when you typed in Merenque in wikipedia it changed the spelling to 
Merengue?  I didn't find anything relevant under that spelling on Google 
or TESS either. doesn't have a listing for Merenque but 
does for Merengue so I suspect that Merenque is an improper spelling in 
English. Of course, that isn't necessarily a problem.
