Stockfish - changing the name of the engine?

Post by FriedmannC » Sat Nov 23, 2013 7:20 pm

It would be more appropriate to rename it into THOR or Mjölnir, just like in the Scandinavian mythology, it hit Houdini too hard lately ;) It would sound better: Deep Thor :) Of course there are many options. BEST regards!

With all due respect,Stockfish is a silly name for a chess monster of this magnitude....

Don't tell me. I don't like fish at all. Sometimes when I'm in the city and I walk over the market place I smell rotten fish everywhere.

Mjolnir is a bit too exotic... Why not Thorshammer, simply?

Or call it "open dish" but that stills reminds me of fish. Or deep open dish.

Nothing wrong with the name Stockfish.

I'm not a fan of the name. I believe, due to the name many people don't download the iOS version and instead opt for inferior chess apps (which cost money).

However, I acknowledge my opinion counts for nothing. What an engine is called is 100% the authors decision.
