The "real" official name would probably be OGRE since that is what our license states. But usually it is referred to as "Ogre3D" for easier understanding = making clear we are not talking about that mythical creature and are in fact a 3D rendering engine.

May I ask where this question is stemming from? Any kind of legal connotation?

I wouldn't use "Ogre". Either "OGRE" with capital letters so that it is clear that it is an acronym or the "Ogre3D" version which I find nicer to read than "OGRE3D" and - as I said earlier - makes a clear distinction from the mythic creature.

But basically up to.

Hint: You might try to google around a bit. There were already quite some thesis' using our engine. You could see what version they used if you like...
