I know that the name "Wikibooks" was thought of and promoted by me, but that 
was before we really knew where we wanted to go with this project (become an 
educational resource). The word "Wikipedia" is obviously the name of an 
encyclopedia and the word "Wiktionary" is obviously the name of a dictionary. 
But "Wikibooks" doesn't bring anything specific in mind. So what does 
everybody think of the name "Wikiuniversity"? Our aim is to create a huge 
educational resource and I think that such a name would be more fitting to 
such an endeavor.
