Not a gamer so didn't know 'mana' had been appropriated by them...

This naming really irks me because of it's religious origin. 'Mana' of course was the food that biblical god Jehovah/Yahweh dropped on the ground every morning to the ancient Hebrew's to keep them alive for 40 years in the desert (or a least until they complained).

'Mana' == "What is it?" as they'd never seen it before.

It came with rules...
1. Mana will be provided on Sunday to Friday.
2. Will turn to worms if not consumed on the same day as provided.
3. Manner will not turn to worms on the Sabbath (Saturday).
4. Collect double rations on Fridays as Sabbath must be kept holy and if you work I will likely kill you.

So unless you want a religious blockchain that takes Saturdays off, and where unused gas turns to worms the next day, I think calling 'gas' 'Mana' is a very bad idea.

I personally would prefer 'fuel' as it's a far more generic concept than the American colloquialism 'gas' (when everyone else calls it petrol or alike.)

So please, keep the blockchain agnostic.
