As the owner of perlcircus.org I have to say I much prefer the general feel of the Circus name versus Monks. Perl, and star-nix technologies in general, have a well-earned reputation of appearing complex and cliquish to newcomers. Words like "arcane," "mysterious," and "esoteric" come to mind. To me Perl should be marketed as tricky but fun and maybe just a little dangerous. I'd have to add to Rob's list: "Camel Tamer," and (for those who specialise in more spectacular code) "Fire Breather."
