Ditto that.  Keep PostgreSQL.

* It's google'able.  Think of all of the documentation out there which
  refers to PostgreSQL.  When people start searching for 'postgres'
  they'll get virtually nothing.

* Why 'Postgres'?  Any marketing effort this large should start from
  scratch, and consider all possibilities, not just default to something
  barely different for the sake of easing the terrible pronunciation
  challenge.

* Maybe some people don't like PostgreSQL, but why assume everyone likes
  'Postgres' better.  I don't.
