Usually, softwares written in python include the 'py' syllable. The best would be to find a funny/nice/little name, even with not link with the subject, but which could be an acronym related to the motorized panoramic head. This acronym should sound good in french too, as I'm french
Example, 'papyrus' for PAnoramic PYthon then_i_don't_know!
For the acronym, you could include words like: motorized, panoramic, head, controller, driver, automatic... Misspelled words can also be used
So, if you have ideas (and I'm sure you can find very good ones!)...

For the adaptation of the merlin head, there's a consensus here, we call it the "panokit" ! It's a panokit for the merlin head that convert the head for panorama shooting : contains the interface, camera shooting cable, iron plate to fix the camera to the head, etc.
I think that designing a full kit with everything needed inside is good and that's why the name is pretty obvious : panokit.
For the naming of the software, one idea exposed is to use "wizard". Merlin is obviously one !

Now, there are some part that still need some fine-tunning. For example, to create the interface, fma38 won't do it himself because it really takes time (I won't do it myself either ...). So we need to find a business that is able to build the interface for us. We will plan a meeting soon with a possible partner for that.
