Except that Linus did not choose linux as the project name, but it was one of his friend:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Linux#The_name

Do you really believe that story?

If I had created something, then it is my creation, and I name it. Not someone else. As we have seen, Linus bosses around with people and he is in charge, insulting people if he dont like what they do, scaring off developers. Do you really believe that such a person with such an ego would let someone else name his creation - or is it more plausible that he named his creation after himself? What is more probable?
1) Person with huge ego names it after himself
2) Person with huge ego let other persons decide over his creation.
