Aside from issue that latest TBB versions show "Firefox" in main menu button, the name Aurora doesn't associate TBB w/ the Tor Project.

I suggest a name that calls attention to TBB being associated w/ Tor (unless it is intentional to NOT call attention to which browser is being used in potentially hostile environments).

The previous consideration aside, a name like Torbrowse, Torb, Torfox, Torser or others would distinguish it from Firefox (although, that could be a bad thing in hostile environments). 

Perhaps for those not living in repressive countries, a solution might be a simple addon (or options in UI settings) to use a different name in main menu button and / or color for menu button & open app tab in task bar.
