Ok, I found where a read a proposition of splitting PyPy in two parts:


This blog entry proposes the name gcgc (or "GcGc"):

 "the Generic Compiler for Generating Compilers"

The name is similar to YACC (Yet Another Compiler Compiler).

Most Python projects starts with "py", so PyPy should be the name of the 
Python interpreter. Ouroboros is a snake so it should be the logo of PyPy (the 
Python part).
