I agree with Jeff - a similar but different logo for those distros
seems to be a good idea.
As for the actual name, "Based on Fedora" seems to be the best option.
But why not have maybe two options people can choose from? Depending
on the name of the derived distros, "Based on Fedora" might not work
well or might produce an awkward result.
Or do some kind of legal issues prevent this?
