How to name the new "gui tool" for JavaFX?

As you probably noticed in this blog and probably even in the latest NetBeans podcast there is a new JavaFX GUI tool to be released soon. However we are still looking for a great name for it. There are already some ideas about the name however if you think that you have a bright great name that we should use (and you are ready to provide it to us for free ;) ) then leave me a comment.

The correct name is always half of the success of the product. This tool is in different situation than a new product at the market however if we'd name it with the right name then it will be easy to remember for our users.
SUN has a long history of "bad" names. That's one of the places where our marketing failed. One of the worst idea that I'd seen was to include quarter of year in the name. I cannot remember any of those "bad" names anymore to provide an example.
Comments:

Name it "Architect". It is the counterpart of the oracle in "The Matrix"

"Matisse is/was the code name for the well-known WYSIWYG Swing user-interface designer of NetBeans, now called the NetBeans GUI builder. This designer includes some of the most intuitive and advanced layout and sizing controls of any Swing visual designer today."

Call it "Netbeans JavaFX (JFX) GUI Builder" ? or JFX Builder ?
