Ooh La La! JoomLa!

The Open Source Matters Team (formerly The Mambo Open Source Development Team) today announced the new name for their Open Source Content Management System:


The name Joomla! is a phonetic spelling for the Swahili word "Jumla", which means "all together" or "as a whole". It was chosen as the entire teams behind Mambo were unanimous in their commitment to protecting the interests of the creators and community, which was the true cause for the success and acclaim earned by that project.
