Sure - I also like the proposed name :). But still, in your examples, 
there is always a word different, an adjective etc, while in our case it 
is just a subset of the other name which could cause confusion (or am I 
just getting paranoid?). Maybe an adjective would help (J. of 
Computational Software Science?? - as a non-native english speaker, I am 
not sure if it sounds weird or not.)

Nevertheless, having a journal is a great idea! (Had Travis any bad idea 
ever?)

cheers,
