Will this thing really be called "thenable"? Has nobody suggested a better name?

The well known name of this behaviour is "thenable" and i think it's best to stick with well-known.

My first thought was, "What's a nable?" Then I figured it must be "then-able", but even after that I still accidentally read it as "th enable" as well. Weird, weird name.
