First of all, yes, we have a chat room! Come check it out!

From the The Real Essential Questions of Every Beta:

Personalizing this space to reflect your community and what you are is one of the small steps to take towards building an active and engaged community.

Lots of SE sites have cute/funny/punny/clever names for their chat rooms, such as:

The Open DoOR

is both welcoming and mildly punny. I do think there is an advantage to having a name for the chat room different than the main site name.
