All said, my vote is for bsdports.org.  I think it has the best ring to it.  Also I think there are strong associations with the word ports ("I'm going to download the port tree and do a make world").

I'm also in complete agreement that we should keep our focus on the Open Source BSD world and try to stay away from the usual linux sillyness.
