Help me name my company!

Apparently I have to terminate my contract, form a company, and then contract back to my organisation through the company to satisfy some insane decades old bureaucratic requirement. I'm fine with this, but I'd like the name of my company to reflect the absurdity of the situation.

I had previously reserved Omnipotent Limited, which doesn't meet the above requirement, but which I liked, but every person I've mentioned this to draws a connection between "omnipotent" and "impotent". This is not a good thing.

So I'm hoping you all have better ideas or perhaps favourite naming resources (quality buzzword generators/websites?)! I like puns, paradoxes and tautology. I'm not worried about trade mark considerations.

Forget to mention I'm in NZ so all company names must end in Limited. Puns on that also welcome!

You'd be wrong if you think I'm Ltd.

Not in the least bit Ltd.

Everybody knows I'm not Ltd.

Because of the government, I'm Ltd.

If you'll please refer to the contract you signed, you'll see that the terms of our business relationship are strictly Ltd.

You're the one who's Ltd.

As You Like It, Limited.

Because it's one of Shakespeare's silliest plays; because they're making you do it; and because it's full of people being forced to leave, then changing their identities and coming back to in disguise to accomplish their absurd aims.
