We realised that the old name Custom Debian Distributions just sended

       Debian Pure Blends

I'm not exactly sure that I like the new name, to be honest.

Well, the renaming was announced on debian-custom list and all lists
of existing CDDs (also for instance on Debian Junior list[1]).  And,
yes, you are not the only one who is not really happy, but this name
has won the poll and I also asked[2] whether "people insist on a
condorset voting".  So there was a chance to take some influence for
people who are involved.

Kind regards
