Or we could completely change the names, as MATÉ did.
For Konsole, unfortunately Terminal and Terminator both exist.
I think Trinitype (as a name which is close to Teletype) could be a
good name, but as I'm French-speaking I can't say if it sounds good ;)
For Konqueror, the original name came from the browsers
(http://konqueror.kde.org/faq/#WheredoesthenameiKonqueroricomefrom):
Navigator, Explorer, Konqueror.
Perhaps ColonisT would be a good sequel ?
