"American fuzzy lop" is the name of a rabbit breed, and also quite a
nice little fuzzing tool that I'm using to discover new bugs in my software:

I want to submit a package for Fedora, but I'm not sure what the name
should be:

  - american-fuzzy-lop
  - afl       (not taken in Fedora)
  - afl-fuzz  (the name of the main binary)
  - afl-fuzzer ?

There doesn't seem to be a package for any other distro yet, so
there's no obvious precedent.
