Lightbulb New gpg encryption/signing frontend: looking for name suggestions

Hey folks!

I've been developing a smooth & simple GTK2 frontend in Python for doing encryption, decryption, signing, & verifying with gpg/gpg2 ... for the last couple weeks. I'm on the doorstep of v1.0 and was hoping to get some ideas for a better name.

Currently it's called a8crypt (there were other frontends before it in different languages).

Any thoughts welcome!

EDIT: Settled on Pyrite!

How about calling it PyGTKCrypt?

Thanks for the idea Rupert! I think I'm hoping to come up with something a little more memorable.

In other news: massive updates. Screenshots in original post updated.

How about PyRamid?

HAH!! Verrrry nice.
I feel slow, because I don't think I would have gotten that if you had skipped the explanation.

Well... I made a decision.
I'll let my friend who came up with it explain: "Pyrite. 'Cause people think they are getting your gold (data), but really it's gibberish to them. Fool's gold."

Quite a few updates as well, since I originally released it. All dialogs replaced with less-intrusive infobars and added basic symmetric openssl support as an alternative to gpg. New url: http://github.com/ryran/pyrite .. updated screenshots in OP and of course at the repo page. Thanks to all those that took the time to give ideas!
