    From a sales/marketing perspective I DO NOT recommend calling it "Alethzero".

    Here is why:

    1) Name of client should be easy to say, pronounce and understand, you shouldn't have to repeat it multiple times to get the message across.
    2) Name of client should be easy spell so people can tell others over the phone, skype, etc.

    Nothing kills adoption faster then confusion.

    The less confusing things are, the more likely for people to adopt it.

    Here are some suggestions:

    1. Ethereum client 1, 2, 3 ,4, etc.
    2. Use names people already recognize such as planets, seasons, animals, birds, etc.

    Ethereum jupiter client
    ethereum summer client
    ethereum mongoose client
    ethereum mockingbird client
    etc.

    marketing is not about cuteness n being fancy. Good marketing is about getting people to respond in your favor.

    In this case, you want the public to respond and adopt ethereum.

    The best technology in world does not do anybody any good if no one uses it.
