Why Perl 6 should be spelled roman

Yes it should spelled Perl vi (no pun intended). Just stays for vision. Perl 6 is the most visionary language i know of.


Cute :)

I'm personally more and more inclined to the idea of Perl 6 being renamed to something else entirely. We have been explaining to the outside world how Perl 5 and Perl 6 are two different languages. A name change would make it official and get this confusion over with.

Something akin to Perl++ would do. Most people understand that C & C++ are two separate languages.

There's really only one person who can decide to rename Perl 6 to something else. He's the guy who picked the name Perl in the first place. I don't think this is very likely to happen.

Name change? Not going to happen.
