[OSM-talk] Name challenge - what to call the new OSM+Wikidata service?

my suggestion would be WOQ (pronounced like "Wok"), which would be short
for "Wikidata-OSM-Queryservice". Or WOQs, if you don't want to only use
one letter for "query" and "service".
The soundalike word "Wok" could also in my opinion be a good metaphor,
you can put Wikidata and OSM data "into a Wok" and "cook" something new
out of it. Maybe the logo could then be a Wok containing map elements
like highways, rivers, forests and so on and also something representing
Wikidata (like the colourful barcode).
