I was under the impression that that's also the case for the name 
"PyPI", which was changed because of difficulty of disambiguating 
from "PyPy" in conversation.

Cheeseshop is at least a word that is obviously a noun, and it is in 
somewhat more common use, with 224000 google hits for "cheeseshop 
python -monty", versus 199,000 for "pypi python -monty".
