I like deity as well. It easy to type and it already got into my mind.

For deity one only has to type "dei<tab>", whereas for trove its
"trov<tab>" or just "trove". Thats an extra keystroke for a name I
cant remember and which has no meaning I see. Deity has the meaning of 
a Good to me, and so I directly conect that to the Superuser, to root, 
to the good of the System. Only he can run it.

Why not stick with the name that was initially chosen?

May the Source be with you.
