The cover of the /4e PHB says "Dungeons and Dragons" in big letters. Which version of it do you have?
As does the /3e addition by the looks of this.
So - show us a book with the brand name of the game being D&D for /3e or /4e.
Note: That is different from a D&D logo existing which is also used to mark WoTC products.Anáil nathrach, ortha bháis is beatha, do chéal déanaimh

"Dungeons and Dragons" should be on the cover.
People will call it 5e regardless, but first and foremost, the game is Dungeons and Dragons, and that's what we should call it.

Wizards seems to be going after new players as well as existing players. So just calling Dungeons and Dragons makes the most sense. I think sticking 5E or 5th edition on the front would likely confuse returning players.

Names like "D&D Final" and "D&D Ultimate" are tricky. What happens, say, 10-15 years later, when "D&D Final" becomes all bloated and outdated and the core and supplements need be updated again with rules errata, consolidation, etc -- would that next iteration be called "D&D Final Ultimate This Time for Sure Re-Unified Compendium"?

The name "Dungeons and Dragons" is larger than just one edition. And no matter how all-encompassing they want this new edition to seem, it's still just one edition. The new edition needs to be called something other than just "Dungeons and Dragons" in order to differentiate it from the previous editions. My preference would be to stick with the naming convention that has already been established and call it 5th Edition. I know that's what I'm going to be calling it anyway....

Dungeon and Dragons...it is what it is, although I would consider subtitles such as Dungeon and Dragons (A Mind Flaying Experience).

Right from when I heard they were trying to get everyone aboard with this edition, I realized that the perfect name would be
Ultimate Dungeons & Dragons or UD&D.
It also makes sense from a marketing POV, so I guess there's a real possibility of that being the title in the end. If nit, my hope would be "Dungeons & Dragons: Owlbears, Owlbears, Owlbears, Bugbears, Dire bears". Anything better than this horrible "D&D next", which doesn't make any freaking sense.

And, what I was saying - and still believe - is that WoTC could change the name to "D&D" and avoid the whole problematic Dungeons thing ...
It works for M&Ms. Did the M and M ever stand for anything? Does it matter if they did?
