I do not like 'Guides' but prefer 'Snap Lines'.

There is also a dialog "New Snap Object" and  dialogs "Edit Snap Line" 
and "Edit Snap Point" and menu item "Insert Snap Line/Point". "Insert 
Guide Point" or "Edit Guide Point" sounds not good to me.

This remembers me to the discussion "Fanglinen" vs "Führungslinien" in 
German some time ago.

kind regards
