I tend towards Gallimaufry, but I'm not sure if that's just because it seems not only a fun word with with vague Dr. Who associations in my head.

I think neoteric might have a tendency to be misread as neurotic if someone's reading quickly.

Half the list sounds like "syphillis," so I just can't take them seriously, 'cause really, who wants syphillis anyway?

"All the good names are already taken by competent companies, however, there are still plenty of names left in the areas of Greek mythology, bodily secretions, diseases and everything involving the intestines"

Where do those names come from? The first two seem fairly straight forward, but after that, you lost me. Hrmmm... I think I'll post this, and then go back and make a suggestion.

The names come from the dictionary. Susurrus is a whisper, gallimaufry is a medley, syllepsis is when one word has both a literal and metaphoric meaning at the same time, neoteric means new, and mimesis means mimicry.

I recommend not using a name that Disney has any claim to...they get bitchy.

Also remember that people are going to be typing this in to the browser occasionally and it wouldn't be good if the name is too complicated or not memorable.

Other than that I have no postitive re-enforcement to give.

talk about not letting you suggest something after voting.

I like Meteoric Lowdown, when you boil it down it means short story.

Once you vote, you have voted in the whole poll. You can change your answer (which includes making a suggestion if you didn't do so in the first place) by filling out the poll again. To do that, click on the Poll #32532 link at the top of the poll, and then click fill out poll.
