What to name this word game app?

My husband built an android app that is one of those word games where you are given a rack of seven letters and have to find as many words using those letters as you can. It's basically a Scrabble trainer, but he wants/needs to avoid using the word Scrabble in the name so as not to piss off Hasbro. What should he name it instead?

In case it helps, here are some of the features of the app that distinguish it from others out there:
-unlike most similar games, this one allows you to choose which of the various official Scrabble and other tournament dictionaries you want to use (e.g. SOWPODS, TWL, etc).
-you can select settings such as to always get a rack with a J, Q, X, or Z in it; to have a blank; to always have a 7-letter word being possible
In other words, he is aiming at a target audience of people who are pretty serious scrabble players and want to use this app to practice, not so much people who just want a new fun game.
-the colour theme is green and grey
- his "company name" is Mollusk Ink, so a name that contains a pun on some sort of mollusc or other sealife and words would be pretty cool.
