Help me rename struts-xdoclet

I've decided that I need a new name for struts-xdoclet. "Struts-XDoclet" is just too hard to say - try it, you'll see. Four syllables is just too many. Since I intend for it to be a Struts/XDoclet Jumpstart Kit, I'd like something that tries to signify that, but then again, I like POGN - Plain Old Good Names. SXJK is just as hard to say as Struts-XDoclet. I was thinking SASSY (Struts App Start ... nothing for S and Y) might be a good one - but doesn't really explain much. It'd be cool to name it Abbie, after my daughter, but I don't think sxd (hey, that might be a good one) will be that earth-shattering, and if I'm going to name something after Abbie - it better be good! I just asked Julie and her idea is to name it "struggle" - that's not bad. It eliminates the struggle in building a new webapp. Please comment your suggestions if you have an opinion.

Well, having read all that, I wouldn't name it after my daughter: try pronouncing "sxd" - "sex dee". Still want the two associated?

What about "StruXlet"?

StruXlet is certainly better than "sex dee" ;) Maybe "Santa" b/c of all the goodies it gives you :D

How about 'eze' as a prefix/suffix. 'struts-eze' 'sedux' - struts easy development using xdoclet. sedux sounds like seduced by struts. I'll muse some more.
