Berkano's original name was SWAF. This name was an accronym for Simple W=
eb Application Framework. For the directions taken by SWAF were not to be y=
et another framework, and also because "swaf" brought up a number=
of irrelevant but it-related google results, it was decided the name shoul=
d be changed.
A funny brainstorm with a couple of friends.. was fun b= ut did not give satisfying results. However, ChrisBK suggested I use a rune= name, because their names are usually pretty catchy and makes one look sma= rt. (Mind you, that's how he found a name for one of his pet projects)
Berkano is the name of the rune of the birch goddess:
it is the container of all becoming/being. It is a collector and conserv= er of energy and a sign of enclosure and shelter.
So, all in all, there's no real reason, but I tried to select of the run= es whose meaning was closest to community related concepts, since Berkano's= component evolve around those too. (Users, preferences, website navigation= , ...)
