It's also an electronic Book using Logos:

I wrote to Thomas Nelson briefly explaining the question and asking
whether they had any problems with us using this name.  I hope it will
get through and that we will get an answer soon.

I sort of like this fact.  It's a bit subversive. :)

> Berean
> Berean Sword

These are pretty catchy.  (The only registered mark is a service mark
for the store chain, so no worries there.)  I'm not sure how many people
would know who a Berean was, but that's okay.  

> CyBerean
> Berean Wind(ows)

A little too kitschy, especially the first one.

Maybe Troy should get a little say in all this, thought. :)
