Did everyone like 'Kodi' when XBMC changed there name? Probably not. Emby (as in M B) is actually pretty catchy. MB has grown so much since just being a media browsing/playback tool, it was time for a change to reflect this. We'll all get over it, and get used to it. What's in a name anyhow? It's the application that counts.

Emby is "MB" so it has legacy and also now is a bit more modern, "mediabrowser" isn't accurate anymore because the project has advanced to a lot more than just that.

I hated the name at first but over last couple weeks it really grew on me. Give it a chance.

I don't know. I don't usually let myself get worked up over something like this, but to me this name is just stoopid. Sounds like a child's rubber toy.

"Daddy, I lost my Emby!"

Haha. I could see that a little. But in the developer forum they had a 100 page thread for months and no name suggested really seemed to be any better. Trust me, the name could be a lot worse.
