As much as I want Cortana... they need a two syllable word like Siri or Xbox or bing.

Not to mention the "cultural sensitivities" of some countries that might object to a nude female form in their phone.

Personally and maybe its me but the name needs to be something that roll off the tong, too many syllables in Cortana.  For all you know Microsoft will just call the assistant Bing....

MS sadly enough never keeps there Codenames for the final product

Bing had a much nicer sounding codename too. Was it Kumo?

No, IIRC Kumo was one of the finalists for name.
