This question has been asked before, but now that the site has had some time to find it's feet and the community is taking shape, we need to survey what the current thinking is.

Below is a list of all the previous suggestions I could find - please add any others I've missed and discuss in the comments.

Please note this from Robert Cartaino:

Name changes can be disruptive, but they can be done when they are demonstrably better at describing the site... but URL changes really should be, like, game-changing-we-HAVE-to-have-this better. That's what the meta discussions will decide.

@Robert it was decided decided to split the original question into two, asking for suggestions just for the URL and just for the title. –  Jack Douglas Nov 8 '11 at 14:57

I went ahead and closed that previous question as a duplicate of the two questions that have been split out, in light of the development and new understanding that we are gaining as a community. –  Richard Nov 8 '11 at 15:11

I like this because of the historical weight that it has. –  Richard Nov 8 '11 at 11:46

As mentioned in chat, I like this one because of the emphasis on the text. –  GalacticCowboy Nov 8 '11 at 15:31
    
I suggested an associated title here. –  Jon Ericson Nov 8 '11 at 17:58
    
I like this because it's much easier to spell and still excludes "Bible" from the url (although it does include "biblical"). –  Richard Nov 11 '11 at 13:39

Note that there are perhaps some good reasons not to have the word 'bible' in the url –  Jack Douglas Nov 8 '11 at 9:52
    
Even some of the SE staff don't like "bible.SE.com". (Although I understand there was some debate over this one.) –  Richard Nov 8 '11 at 14:06
    
In some ways, this is the simplest choice. But I would probably prefer it to be an alias. (I'm not sold on the dangers of using the word "bible", but I see the point.) –  Jon Ericson Nov 8 '11 at 17:55
