Unfortunately, Mocha's been taken:
"mocca" was previously a project at UKC providing Motif bindings for
occam, timestamps around 07/1996 - 10/1997. It has been used before

Benford, S., et al.,
MOCCA An Environment for CSCW Applications.
1992, Centre for Research in CSCW, Lancaster University.
This has more recently (1999) become:
MOCCA - A Distributed Environment For Collaboration

something more abstract, like "M*" or "O+". "Db" (D-flat) is tempting,
What about a scottish flavour? och-aye :-) Or maybe och-my... , oh-my ...
