Our company is being rebranded and we're to fall in line and change the colour scheme of our web application that's currently used internally and is in the process of being sold externally.

Unfortunately, the name of our product and the new colour scheme means there may be a trademarking issue with another company who sound/look similar but whose business is pretty much completely different; to pre-empt any legal issues our sales team have decided to rename the software.

The original name was chosen 3 years ago and the codebase/application database is built around it; management want the developers and internal users to start referring to it by it's new name (which they haven't even come up with yet), but that's kinda difficult when classes, methods, tables, stored procedures etc. are prefixed/contain the original name. To the development team it will always be known under it's original moniker.

Should we have avoided using the name in the code/database and stuck to generic terms?? Anyone else had a similar problem? Having breathed the code for so long I can't imagine calling it anything different when nothing else is changing.
I'll let future me worry about that!
