Juvenile in what sense?

It is always fun to hear from the free software cult, where juvenile males give us names like the Gimp and LibreOffice, and then have them complain about poor brand recognition.
I don't see that playful names have seriously hurt adoption of Linux (named after its definitely juvenile developer), git (not so juvenile developer but definitely stupid name), Red Hat (named for the hat of its founder), or for that matter Apache (play on "a-patchy server").
On the other hand, I can't see anything juvenile in LibreOffice, just an office suite which is free (libre in Spanish and French). Care to elaborate?
