IMHO you could significantly improve git usability by changing nothing but the names.

It's gonna be English anyway, doesn't matter if it's branch or thallus or bracchium or dendrite or whatever; each word will still have a dozen contextual meanings varying in reconditeness. What helps me are those Git explorer plugins where it largely becomes a visual problem.
