Menagerie

A surprising number of GNU/Linux tools have animal names (rather than simply having animal mascots or logos).

First, obviously, there's :gnu, and also...
:bumblebee
:cuttlefish
:dolphin-emu (two for one)
:firefox (apparently a red panda)
:nautilus
:pidgin (close enough)
:python
:rabbitvcs

Non-free, not on GNU/Linux or I don't use them:
dolphin (KDE file manager)
gecko (browser engine for firefox/icecat/iceweasel)
icecat / iceweasel
thunderbird
:tortoisesvn
spideroak-one

Close contenders:
:munin (famous raven)
:ubuntu (release names)

Distant contenders:
:gencfsm (sounds like a sneeze)
