Oyster of course. Because Perl's are created in them! :)

OK, probably not the most marketable name, but I thought the association was appropriate...

    I personally believe this is interesting for it's very much in $Larry's spirit: in fact it would have a very strict etymological sense, for Perl "should" have been "Pearl" as we all know. However for some reason Perl's imagery has had little to do with pearls and oysters ever since: the official symbol is as we all know, an onion! Thus... how 'bout onion itself? We may even try to find some suitable backronym, but... is that all that necessary?

    Update: I notice that indeed there have been some other onion-oriented suggestions.
