Er, just because you have a "strange feeling" doesn't mean the name is

"Med" is pretty ambiguous.  _I_ certainly don't have any immediate
reaction that it contains "medical software," and I don't think it's a
generally used abbreviation for medical in the wider population --
indeed I'm not sure even the long phrase "medical software" has much
meaning in the abstract; what would a user think it is??
