but it means also "hour" in latin and italian

it means "now" in italian.

I don't like it
also, it is too short, it is not euphonic

But I like the idea of drawing the name from latin. I want a full, well
sounding word. Possibly male though, giving it a female name associates bad
to "GNUstep" I think. Of course the word GNUstep has no gender, but I would
think it as a "thing" as "neutral", so in tongues having only male/female
likle italian it translates to masculine generally.
