Hmmm... sounds like a productive naming scheme, but keep in mind that 
there exists a Big Evil Corporation by the name of Wolfram Research 
that sells a symbolic maths package called Mathematica. Its CEO, Steven 
Wolfram, has been known in the past to sue people over everything, and 
I would not be amazed if they would be less than friendly to you if 
they figured out you called a software package "Wolfram".
