I should we shouldn't rule out a name just because the English pronunciation is similar to
another project.
Will people really confuse Apache Hyena and Apache Jena?
Would have to be a face-to-face conversation or a recording where either party do not really
know what they are talking about.

That said, "Hoya" seems like a fine name to me as well.

I do wonder whether it is a large enough project to be standalone (rather then being folded
into either Hadoop or HBase).

Just my $0.02.

As a project name "Jena" has been in use for the project for about 13 
years now.  1.0 was 9 Jan 2001.   A mere 983K (zipped).

The discussion is about Hyena for Hoya.
