A rose by any other other name...

... would smell as sweet.

Eclipse may take new name after reorganization, basically because the name pisses Sun off, and so they don't want to join the Eclipse consortium unless it's changed.

Thing is, while I have no reason to object to Sun joining the Eclipse team, I'm not sure what the advantage is, either. So why should Eclipse bend over backwards for Sun, and loose the recognition factor which Eclipse has earned over the last couple of years?
