Too bad DFS is so ambiguous, and used by everyone.
Microsoft DFS, DCE DFS, Google's DFS :(

I just think the name shouldn't be cliche though, 
and it should be simple. (4 letters or less)

DFFS is nice, and could stand for lots of things:

DragonFly        Filesystem
Distributed Fast Filesystem
Disk-Fusing      Filesystem

Data-Field       Filesystem
Direct-Flow      Filesystem
Damn Fine        Filesystem
