Baby is fine from a work safety perspective but perhaps not from a distinctive keyword perspective. I admit that boob and babe are bad candidates. As I
mentioned before though, boobi does not have the same pitfalls as boob (at least with Google, not sure about other engines). I admit that there are other
candidate names that look and sound more professional than "boobi" though. :)
Bo, are you being facetious? If not... we don't need to bother about our build system command overlapping with an unrelated acronym in a non-overlapping domain.
Trademarks deal with the same problem. A business named "Patriot Dry Cleaners" does not infringe on Patriot Software's IP (and vice versa).
