Please consider changing the name

Just started looking into this database. Looks very promising. Just wondering if you have any plans to change name to something beautiful name. CockroachDB is not catchy name.


Noooo. It’s a brilliant name.

A cluster of CockroachDB nodes should be as impossible to stamp out as a cockroach infestation. Cockroaches are renowned for their ability to survive.

The logo is cute too.

I’ve heard both sides when sharing about it… and the people who like it like its reference to survivability… those who didn’t like it were all not technical people.

So it really depends who the target market is…and to me its got to be devs … and so i think most (if not all) devs will be able to get past the name whether they like it or not.

i questioned it too…but then i realized i didn’t care what it was called as long as it works.


I think CockroachDB is fine and really appropriate for its features.

And our team have a interesting and cute chinese name for it:小强DB.:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
