Phoenix and Minotaur to be renamed Firebird and Thunderbird

The documentation and product strings will be updated soon. In addition to securing Firebird, we've also got the OK from those contributing legal resources to use the name 'Thunderbird' for a mail client. Hopefully this will be the end of naming legal issues for a while."

But they will be confused between the Firebird Database Browser and the Firebird HTML Browser. I don't see that any of the other 'options' you have thrown up have that DIRECT conflict of interest.
