I’d call it Q936  :)

The new service is getting more and more usage, but it lacks the most important thing - a good name.  So far my two choices are:

* wikosm
* wikidosm

Suggestions?  Votes?  The service combines Wikidata and OpenStreetMap databases, and uses SPARQL (query language) to search it, so might be good to reflect that in the name.

P.S.  I know this is the hardest problem after off-by-one and caching...
