This page is a translated version of the page Abstract Wikipedia/Name and the translation is 25% complete.
This is part of the development plan for Abstract Wikipedia.
Continues from the summary plan for Abstract Wikipedia.

All names – Abstract Wikipedia and Wikilambda – are preliminary and meant mostly for writing this proposal and discussing it.

Tên hiện tại được lấy từ một số ý tưởng sau:

  • Wikipedia trừu tượng: Nội dung trong Wikipedia trừu tượng trừu tượng hóa với một ngôn ngữ hình tượng khác.
  • Wikilambda: this is based on the notion that all functions can be grounded in lambda calculus. Also, looks kinda technophile (“geeky”), with the risk of being perceived as not meeting its intended public and being managed with a bias only by specialists, already advantaged by an access to the largest knowledge available in their own culture.

Note that the name "Abstract Wikipedia" will not, in fact, stick around. When the project is done, Abstract Wikipedia will be just a part of Wikidata. This is just a name for the development work, and therefore naming is not that crucial. Wikilambda on the other hand would be a new Wikimedia project, and thus the name will have rather high visibility. It would be good to come up with a good name for that.

Phản đối

Hiện nay, có ba lý do mà tên Wikilambda bị phản đối như sau:

  • It is really hard to spell for many people (says Effeietsanders).
  • Some people keep misreading it as Wikilambada (says Jean-Frédéric).
  • It also easily misreads as WikiIambda / Wikiiambda (that's, with yet another i / I instead of the l / L), so it should at least be WikiLambda with a capital L (suggested by Fuzheado).

Alternatives suggested

Alternative names that have been considered or suggested:

This is an archive. New names should be proposed in Wiki of functions naming contest.

Other suggestions are welcome.

In fact, the first task P1.1 for the project will be to decide with the community together on a name and on a logo. This had precedence for previous projects (Logo of Wikidata, Name of Wikivoyage).

Continued in goals of Abstract Wikipedia.
