If there's one thing I don't like about the name "Enterprise Extras" it's
that it suggests too much about the _type of software_ that is offered,

generic a name.

"Enterprise" simply is not the name of a distribution and not the name of
a project either. It suggests that it's extra software specifically for
enterprise-level target groups, which is strange when that's only because
Fedora packages are built for just another distribution.

using the same reason you built up for the project name, CentOS-Extras seems a much better fit since thats the distro its going to target and be built on.

Using Fedora in the name is a really bad idea, imho. Its going to be very misleading to the users as to whats going on. I've actually had > 100 emails from people looking at centos.karan.org/ as to where they can find the packages for CentOS ( they seem to look at the Fedora Extras word and assume the pkgs wont work on CentOS )

"Fedora Extras" is neutral in that it's extra packages from the Fedora
Project and doesn't say anything about what type of software it might be,
as Fedora is also the base name of the distribution.

Because Fedora is the name of the distro, thats going to be very confusing.
