But names are very important and SOCI seems a really bad 'name' to me,
even in these acronymic times.
I couldn't even quickly find what it was an acronym for!
And so the namespace name is also a bad choice.
If we can agree that this has a Boost library 'candidate' status (something I think we need a formal procedure to assign), then you
could claim Boost.SQL?
I suggest that you now ask Boosters for suggestions for names and try to get a consensus before review. The longer you delay a name
change, the worse the grepping job ;-)
