    I second this. Venice carries a certain class with it that would make for an excellent market name. Priv is just going to make them the **** of all kinds of jokes.
    Is this Chen's way of killing off the hardware business?

    "OK, guys, I love your passion, I'll give you another chance to make a phone. Android, this time. If that doesn't sell, we will have given it our best shot and that's all we can do.

    "Oh, and by the way, I really like the name 'Priv'. That would be brilliant, we should go with that."

    What an awful name. I didn't think it could get worse with "Leap," I was wrong.

    It makes me laugh how much a consultant was paid to pick a name that haters will call the BlackBerry Privy.

    First thing I thought of.

    I will call mine "Prive" I guess.

    Wrong

    Really does not matter what you call it... there will be no consensus with users no matter what you call it.... some wil like it... some will not...in the end... it is the PR the device gets that matters... sure the name may not do it for some..in the end... it will be how the phone perfiorms that counts...

    After this, Leap sounds downright brilliant.

    Hrmm... Not a fan of BlackBerry Priv.

    Digging into it.... maybe it's not too late for them to change if true!
    Kevin, you're our only hope... use whatever contacts you have there and tell them to change it ASAP, this name is so bad it will probably actually cost them sales.

    Worst name ever! If this is the best they can do, they should go back to letter/number combinations.

    This name is terrible. I don't even know what to say other than I might actually get another phone because it is that bad hahaha

    If anyone asks it will be simply called the new BlackBerry :S

    Hopefully this story and thread here on CB was their focus group test? Hopefully?

    Seriously, anyone who cares about BB should blow up Chen's twitter. They cannot call this thing the Priv. That's ridiculous.

    Someone on the main CB article mentioned Visa. I think this would be great since it falls in line with the Passport name.

    Almost anything is better than priv. That name is horrendous

    This name makes me want to VOMIT all over my Passport.


    What is wrong with choosing something organic and simple. Think of it like a fresh start, new chapter or the turning over of a new Leaf.

    You may as well match the name of the Priv with a vomit colored casing.

    Still hoping for the BlackBerry Leaf.

    Infact I can brainstorm a complete list of names at the top of my head which shows some universal ambition or connection with its actual name. (e.g. Galaxy suggests infinite possibilities and BlackBerry is also a fruit)


    SOLAR
    HORIZON
    SUNSET
    FRUIT
    FIELD
    HEDGE (OMG this could also be affiliated with security and has a connection with the fruit as well)
    STAR
    LEAF
    THORN
    PRICKLE
    FENCE (again security)
    UNIVERSE
