If you like to make a kind of stand alone app with a database, SQLite a 
good choice. It is easy to embed into your app. If you keep to ANSI SQL 
there should be no trouble changing databases at a later date.
I use SQLite for my WebSite and it performs great.
The whole database is less than 1Mb including the SQLite module for 
python. No 50Mb install needed if you just want a simple database.
It makes my website very portable and easy to install.

MySQL works great to. I have used it a lot and it is very available. 
Just about every provider can provide you one.
