Thank you for creating this project.  I downloaded a copy.  It seems very

*Now, Please Change The Name!!!*

"SQLite" is a trademark.  You are welcomed and encouraged to use the code
for SQLite, but not the name "SQLite".

This is not just a legal exercise.  A project like your "SQLite Database
Browser" will end up in the hands of many people who think that your GUI is
in fact the real SQLite and not just a GUI front-end to SQLite.  And so if
they encounter problems, they will contact the SQLite developers for
support.  The office phone number here is not difficult to find with a
Google search, and quite a few SQL-newbies manage to find it, and ring me
up.  Then I have to explain to them that the program they are using is not
in fact SQLite but is a third-party wrapper around SQLite and that they
will need to contact the developers of the third-party wrapper to get
support and that, no, I cannot give them the phone number because I don't
know what it is.  Many callers get this.  Others, not so much.  A few are
downright rude.  But in every case, I have to deal with the issue, which
takes time away from working on SQLite.  The experience is also frustrating
for the users of your GUI.

Suggested new name:  "Database Browser for SQLite"

Moving the word "SQLite" into a prepositional phrase makes it clear to
(most) people that your program is an add-on to SQLite and not SQLite
itself.  I think that will be sufficient to solve the problem described

Thank you for your understanding and for your prompt attention to this
