How about 'Gleem' - rhymes and has a "G" and is shines ;-)

      But Scheme is not a scripting language; it is a full, general-purpose
      programming language.  If the GNU extension language will be Scheme,
      then why not call it Scheme?  Given that we already have Emacs-Lisp,
      something like GNU-Scheme would be a logical choice.

   But that's neither catchy, nor funny, and, therefore, impractical. ;-)
