My problem with the name is that it conveys two different things, none
of which I want in my linux distribution.

The term "Beefy" does not chime with a lean and efficient distribution.

The term "Miracle" is something that is even worse. It is some
phenomenon that can not be explained (except by divinity). Do we really
want that in a linux distribution?

There may well be other interpretations that come to mind, but these
are what came to me right away.

I did not know the proceedings for voting or even that it was on, so it
is correct, I did not vote. Of course, that gives me no voice (which is
appropriate). However, it does not preclude me from having an opinion.
