Well, Geany makes allusion to a 'genie' or 'jinn' [1], which is most
known from the (Arabic, I assume) tale of Aladdin [2]. If you click on
the 'Arabic' article in [1] you will be directed to 'جيني', which, to
the best of my understanding of Arabic script (which is null), uses
the same spelling as in the *.svg file [3]. So I would go with 'جيني'
meaning Geany, in Arabic script. It would be cool to have this on the
the main page of geany.org!

Any Arab reader or speaker please correct. Regards

[3] http://ar.wikipedia.org/wiki/جيني
