If you add posibility to also download normal web pages recursively, and/or search them for download links you could easy name it as
Free Web Downloader
Web Link Downloader
Web Spider Downloader
Web Leecher
Down by Leech (aka Down by law)

and so on:)

I agree completely.

Not only that, but it's also quite similar to the name of a competitor of ours.

Hard to really put a name on it.
It does so much now that it really has gone beyond definition.

Except maybe a few:
Advanced - FRD is highly advanced.
Downloader - Can't deny it downloads. It does a lot of things, but in the end, it's main/last goal is actually downloading.
Rip/Rape - FRD definitely rips/rapes sites!

Should be tossed:
rapid/rapidshare - Just confusing to newbs who think it is "just another rapidshare downloader"
filehost - We can now rip youtube and other sites, which aren't technically "file hosts"
free - Bit of a waste as you can see a free download immediately. Free use to describe ripping rapidshare with the "free" method.
download manager - FRD isn't really made to "manage" downloads, at least not straight hot-linked URLs. It's more of a ripper. although, plain URLs COULD be downloaded through FRD, but it would really be a waste of it's potential and mostly only make newbs go "why didnt my link download????" when it's not truely a hot-linkable URL.

Ultimate Downloader (or similar) sounds best. Nice strong name. Generic enough to describe what it does, but not too cryptic as to confuse.

I think "FRD" should be kept if at all possible, but no need to keep it if the name just comes out stupid.
"Filehost Ripper and Downloader" would be nice, but it is kinda redundant and also uses "filehost", which is misleading to the true power of FRD.
Recursive could be used as there is some recursion in some cases, I suppose, but a bit too specific maybe.

UMAD (lol) - Ultimate Multi-host Advanced Downloader
RAD - Rip Anything Downloader

Something like that.
