It's pretty hard to toss out names without knowing why you are
changing it. If you are trying to disquise something, then it needs
to be named something to reinforce the opposite of it. If you need a
new name because someone else is taking it, then what are you doing
that's different (or you'd be one instead of two)?
Unfortunately, I gotta ask why, or you might as well just feed the
letters into an anagram generator and come up with random letters.
