What will the new entity be called? For now, Newsweek will be called Newsweek and The Daily Beast will be called The Daily Beast, with some intermingling of the names to come later. -- Observer Exclusive: Newsweek and Daily Beast to Merge | The New York Observer

The obvious new name is "WeekBeast". Dave Weigel suggested in a Twitter update that Slate should get involved, because then they could call the combined operation "Sleekbeast".

Weekie Wacky Beasty, sucking up the yeastie,

Singing loud the praises of the enemies of Man.

Shrilling shout your smugness, look for boys to bugness;

Weekie Wacky Beasty, snort it while you can!
