    is javascript a DSL, where the domain is the DOM? If so, put something about the DOM in the name.  It is definitely a dynamic language, so I would have someting that conveys it being dynamic vs static in the name.  Maybe ecma script 5 should fork into 2 directions. One that is a general purpose dynamic language. The other a dynamic language that has syntax, exception handling and security customized to the browser.

    Dynamic -> Dyno ( as in Gyno ), DOMDY, DOMIC,  MICDOM  <- DOM
