It would really help if this project had a more specific name, and not something that appears as part of the name of various competitors (i.e. KeePass Password Safe). It's a bit like having a web server project named "Web Server". Web searches for information about your product (for example "KeePass vs Password Safe") are pretty useless as a result. It is a hindrance to getting your product known.
From 1990's this (Counterpane) application's name: "Password Safe".
This open-source application migrated to SourceForge 2002.01,
aforementioned competitor born 2003.11.
The application HAD a specific name, until trampled upon by competition.
Unfortunate as the historical truth may be, the reality of the present is those words chosen for a name have become a generic term for this kind of product. And this product has become less well known than competitors, and it can't afford to cling stubbornly to "I used it first."
It is annoying for alternative products to always pop up first in searches.
PWSafe seems to work well for searching though.
