I don't like this one very much.

Asked a couple of friends and relatives for ideas:

Apache Akira
Still didn't find a live project with name conflict

Apache Mottainai
A bit long maybe, maybe it's ok
Did not find any live project with name conflict

Apache Zingy

For the next ones I found existing projects but decided not to ditch
them right away and share.
Some I like, some are clearly out of question because of strong naming
I don't really know where is the line in the sand.
IIUC, the issue with Eclipse Zest was that there're a lot of
similarities in keywords that could be used to describe the project.
The brand will be "Apache XXX". If a project or company named XXX exists
but it's scope has *nothing* to do with ours, could it be okay?

Apache Jeet
I like this one very much!
In reference to Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do
and the idea of quickness vs. speed:
Found a sole project http://jeet.gs/ which is a css layout
Don't know how much an issue it is

Apache Bata
Means "brick" in indonesian
Maybe too close to "beta"
Apache Zesto
Simple derivation of Zest

Apache Ardor

Apache Stamina

Apache Juice

Apache Moxie

Apache Verve
https://github.com/srohde/Verve (looks dead)

Apache Zeal

Apache Brisk
