I really like the name change case of Ethereal.

Ethereal -> WireShark

Now we have "hobbit" need to be changed.

hobbit -> hobbitmon
              hobbitmonitor (how about this one ? longer but no confusion)

I like the hobbitmon the best now but I am concern about the "mon"(mother) part when presenting the software.
