Where does the name "Conkeror" come from?

A "conkeror" is a winner in the game of conkers--a game in which the contestants knock their conker (a horse chestnut on a string) against their opponents' to see whose will crack first. Although the name of Conkeror the browser was originally inspired by Conkeror Beer from Crouch Vale Brewery, the project later adopted the nutty etymology of its name as a kind of theme. Although etymologically unrelated, due to the fact that "Conkeror" is a homonym with the name of the web browser "Konqueror", the full name of the browser in spoken English is "Conkeror (with a C)", though in writing, this disambiguation is unnecessary.
