    the PR 1v ? seriously the privy in the UK is the toilet
    Well yes, but the way it was spun by the consultant probably went along the lines of "Mistah Chen, I have studied this at $1000 per hour and the name you want is the Priv". Chen: "..." Consultant: "The Priv because it is Privy to all your top-secrets". Chen: "Ah so! I love it"

    Then the consultant flew to the UK business class so he could use the UK version of the toilet and sing a songio from his ****.

    Still hoping for the BlackBerry Leaf.
    Leaf is a very nice sounding, easy to remember name. Like "hey, look at the new Leaf, it's actually very cool"

    "Hey, have you seen my new Priv"?

    The device has been designed and priced for the PRIVileged, I suppose.

    If they wanted to emphasize security & Privacy, SHIELD would've been a far better name.

    And it's generic enough not to fringe on Marvel Comix

    But not generic enough to stop Nvidia suing.

    Hrmm... Not a fan of BlackBerry Priv.

    Digging into it.... maybe it's not too late for them to change if true!
    If you have connections still at BlackBerry you have to tell them this is a terrible name . There is no way they tested this name with the public before going with it.

    No you all don't get it - Venice? It's too in line with their recent past, ie. Passport, Classic, Leap, etc

    Priv is a little weird, provocative - makes me wonder what is a Priv?

    It's a great name.

    It'll be pronounced "preeve" I'm sure, and if so, it'll be awesome.

    It's cool and a little hip, because it doesn't make sense.

    You think BlackBerry wants to target the "classy" crowd? Loll they want the mass market-the same people who like android or iOS aren't into "classy".

    The title of a Japanese magazine ''priv.'' is pronounced [ praiv].

    If I was the slider, I would shoot myself if Priv is the real name. I'd put the gun right on my up/down volume keys, pull the trigger and blow my plastic bits all over. I'm just dumbfounded. What a terrible name. People will hide the slider around other people just so they won't have to say it's name. It will become the Name that shall not be spoken.

    I'll just say it's a BlackBerry that runs Android. I wouldn't bother with the rest.

    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.
    Normally I would have agreed with that statement. It's almost inconceivable that they could pick a name that NO ONE would like. And yet, here we are....

    Honestly, it keeps getting worse. Blackberry Visa would actually be really cool like the other user mentioned.
