I'm partial to just "Fedora" it's easy to say, easy to remember and once
someone gets the idea that porting the Fedora base system to say the
OpenSolaris kernel (and you just know someone will do that at some point
for no other reason that. we can) it does not impose the Linux name.
Besides I was never a big fan of "Linux this and Linux that" naming
schemes, I run Fedora with the Fedora Desktop on top of it - currently
that just happens to be based on Linux and GNOME.
