I know, I know, I really don't want to open this discussion up either, but…

Sean started working on the new icons, and then let me know about the 
issue of the wordmark.  "Thunderbird Earlybird" just looks odd, and is 
much longer than "Firefox Aurora".

So, I think we should try one more time…  :(

As suggestions, I offer the following:
Thunderbird Cygnet [0]
Thunderbird Squab

Sean suggested:
Thunderbird Peep [1]
Thunderbird Flight
Thunderbird Origin
Thunderbird Dawn
Thunderbird Ace

Thanks, and apologies,

[0] A cygnet is a baby stork, so we could be like the ugly ducking…  :)
[1] The baby bird _does_ look like she should be named "Peep".
