CentDOS has negative connotations, both with respect to MS-DOS, and 
Denial of Service.  As well the td letter combination sounds a little 
clumsy.

CentOS - DE or CentOS Desktop would be perfectly acceptable, as long as 
the CentOS project itself was fine with you using their trademark.

You could also be a little adventurous and call it something entirely 
different, like Chocolate.  (though that probably popped into my head 
because of Linux Mint).
