Renaming the "Tabbed" variant of the Notebookbar

On social media, we refer to "Notebookbar" (and sometimes MUFFIN) but do not show this word in the UI. So a request was made [1] to rename the variants to "Tabbed Notebookbar" and "Tabbed Compact Notebookbar". However, Tabbed and Notebookbar sounds to me non-native speaker like tech-talk and I suggested "Verbose Catalogues" and "Compact Catalogues" (admittedly not really better). Another idea was to show MUFFIN with the separator.

So I'm seeking here for more input. Should we change the names and what would suit both recognizability and simplicity?

Thanks in advance,
Heiko

IMO we should keep "Notebookbar" in the name (like "Tabbed
Notebookbar"), because:

* We've already talked about it a lot in our marketing materials

* "bar" is more familiar than "catalogue" in terms of UIs -- sidebar,
toolbar etc.

My 2 eurocents!

Re: Renaming the "Tabbed" variant of the Notebookbar

Agree with Mike and Italo,

we should use "Notebookbar" IF needed.

In general it's more an technical term of an different toolbar
implementation and my goal is, that there is no difference from the user
perspective between toolbars and notebookbars. So in Menubar -> View ->
User Interface there is no "Notebookbar" or "Toolbar" separation needed and
shouldn't be done. But if we need an separation, than call it Notebookbar.

my 2 cents
