Supply all of the relevant, and none of the extraneous:-

Debian GNU/Free
Debian GNU/Net
Debian GNU/Open

No one need be upset at that. Just leave the BSD part off.
It is understandable that the people at the various BSDs have some level
of proprietary 'pride' in their creation. I don't think that this
minimal association would upset them, the market knows what it is
getting, and Theo De Raadt won't kill anybody because his distro is
being associated with some kind of glorified fairy.
