I am so excited about the Rails Merb merger! We need a descriptive
name for the event.
Rails 3 is fine but not descriptive enough

David A Black tweeted it as the merber (merg of merb and rails)

This is my favorite
Ruby on Rails<<Merb
or Rails<<Merb

Other thoughts
mRails
rMerb
Rails+=merb
Rails++ (hold your fire, it's a joke)
Rails[:merb]
RailsMerb
meRails
MerbRails
:rails

Ok, You can FLAME me now.

Happy days

Hehe, the official name will stay Rails 3 but you can always try to
convince the main bloggers to come up with a nickname ;)
I'm glad to hear you're excited tho!

Not knowing much at all about merb, I'm finding it hard to get super
excited, but I am excited about new technology in general :)

Just in case there will be a cutsie nick for the merger I'd like to
register my +1 for Rails<<Merb

Happy holidays

Using Rails relies heavily on googling - so my vote would go for
naming it something pretty unique.  I've done a lot of reading about
railway track engineering over the recent years.
