i'd prefer it if they wont name it the Manila Eye--that would be an obvious rip-off of the London Eye...

why not the Manila Horizon / Bay Horizon...based on its proposed design, it would actually dip into the sea like a water-mill...so the name would fit perfectly, since the horizon is the point where the Sea and Sky would appear to meet...

what about calling the wheel the The Bay Sunset or simply The Sunset

Manila Bay after all, is famed for its sunset...and the wheel dipping into the sea kind of resembles the sun setting into the bay...

I dig this tower for its height, not for its design.........and to be built on a reclaimed land? Whooa, let's hope they'll build this sucker deep into the bedrock..........
