Firstly, I would suggest you actually try to explain the meaning of your name suggestion (if it isn't obvious enough) for everyone to understand what it's supposed to mean (if it's not supposed to have one, then refer to the second point).

Secondly, a better reason besides something like "but I want to" would greatly increase your suggestion's credibility. Besides, explaining why it's a better name in comparison to the other submissions/suggestions is worthwhile for everyone to consider it. Just take a look at some of the other posts/suggestions in this topic to see what I mean.

The first part, Gyro, is short for Gyrostability. The second, part Neko, is the japanese word for cat.

And incredibly hard to come by on google. I mean, the only reason I know about this is that a friend of mine linked me to this project.

Actually if you search "Platformer game Engine by Wohlstand", you'll get this forum. This is because the index page isn't called "Platformer Game Engine" but it's a long name which starts with "Platformer game Engine by Wohlstand".

Man, I don't know why I didn't struggle to understand that.
Let me fix:
I think Platformer Game Engine is a bad name, because Google will not find this only, but also lots of other engines through the internet.
I voted to Kitten Platformer Studio because it's unique enough and it makes reference to the engine's mascot. Through I found it out very girl-ish.
Do you want fries with that?

Well, it actually is Platformer Game Engine, but it's by Wohlstand. So in final name we can add a little addon in a title, e.g. "Wohl's (or Wohlstand's) Platformer Game Engine". But it is ok to have another project name, I don't have anything to other names, just I think PGE is the most fitting IMHO.
Poof!

In my opinion it should be PlatGenWohl/PlatGEnWohl and PGE or PGW as abbreviation. Most people say PGE or PGW anyway because it's still shorter to type than PlatGenWohl. In the end everyone should just be able to chose themselves if they wanna say PGE/PGW, PlatGenWohl/PlatGEnWohl or Platformer Game Engine made by Wohlstand ;)

I'm saying this because the debate has caused some arguments in the past, which, in my opinion were completely unnecessary. In the end we all know what PGE means, and if you want you can still call it that "Kitten Platformer Studio with the random cat head" people are gonna figure out what you're talking about :P

Personally i feel that PlatGEnWohl is hard to pronounce... Wohl i have no clue how you pronounce that.
I get all tongue tied trying to pronounce it and i feel like i am chewing on my tongue.
PGE sounds better, Platformer Game Engine or PGE sounds far better to me.
And it's easy to pronounce without feeling like i am gonna swallow my tongue.
