Summary

Serious businesspeople don't have time for fun names, and learning them.
Their time is better spent synergizing paradigm-shifting best practices
in the cloud.

NOTE: This patch is just a proof of concept to start a discussion,
not something that's worth including. There are better ways to solve this
problem, if we feel it's worth solving.

Test Plan

Can't test it. I'm not a serious businessperson.

This answer discusses why applications have names:

Beyond that, I don't think these are a serious/nonserious business issue, because Atlassian's suite is the most "Serious/Enterprise" offering in this space and also has names ("JIRA", "Crucible", "Fisheye", "Bamboo", "Confluence", etc). Historically, this has been a new user confusion problem, but when we added the short descriptions that seemed to clear things up a lot.

Some of the short descriptions are probably a little jokey (I think Projects has "Put Stuff in Big Piles") and we could provide alternatives for those, bit it sounds like that isn't an issue here.

Okay. The decisions to choose those names makes more sense after seeing that answer :)
