in reply to It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?

There are enough differences between Perl and Perl 6 that they are almost different languages, and worse, learning Perl 6 is a commitment to un-learning Perl because there's no realistic way to keep all the semantic differences straight if you want to go back and forth. I think I'd be better off learning a new language like Rust, and keeping my Perl skill set in my back pocket.
