We had some original thoughts here: Why Database Administrators? but that seems to read more of a "why is this site named this way" and not so much of a "we need this name". So I'm making this thread as a "we need this name".
I'm going to copy over each of the old names from the other thread and we can vote on them anew and get some ideas in mind on what the names mean.
Talking about databases is not only the administration side it's all the tasks around them, including:
Data modeling, SQL problems, Database decisions, etc...
Please feel free to submit your own suggestions and vote on the ones you like
These are CW after all.

Feedback from various mods on other sites where they have bee through naming issues at length:
"There is some long history on the naming stuff, currently no SE 2.0 site (except AskUbuntu) gets their own domain, and only very few a non-descriptive name."
"clarify that [we need] a "nickname", just a generic name that properly describes the audience."
