If we're taking write-ins, I would suggest "racket teer", "racket
racketeer", and "racket plt".  But I never know if we're still
brainstorming, done with that but still deciding, or firmly decided
and leaving the issue closed.  I think it would be more productive to
pick either end of that spectrum, and go through the "deciding"
process exactly once.  If it already happened, let's take what's in
git for better or for worse and move on.  If it hasn't happened, let's
just leave the floor open to suggestions until the release process is
upon us and weigh the options then.
