I don't understand what you dislike about it.
I do not expect the nickname to promote Sugar, just as "Lenny" does not
itself promote Debian, or "Hoary promote Ubuntu.
Actually, after I send the proposal I realized that in my opinion
nicknames directly tied to Sugar is a bad idea, as it might dry out the
namespace too quickly, and also confuse as the actual name does not
(like e.g. Sucrose) hint about the the kind of relation.
So I now propose instead to name Sugar releases _indirectly_ after great
sugar-related personalities, and specifically propose to name next
release: Van Houten
Background material for my choice:

This first nickname also serves as an excercise in avoiding CamelCasing
everything: "van" is lowercase". ;-)
