How do I name a thing?

I'm working on an app project and am having a really hard time doing the whole marketable memorable unique name thing. Any idea I have is absurd or taken. It's frustrating because I'm already working with a designer to bring the thing to life. It's a very visual, beautiful daily mood tracker. I might extend it to include a meditation guide. The idea is to be more tolerant and observant about your mood rather than rating how happy you are or aren't every day.

I've seen previous posts on naming schemes. I'm looking for exercises and thought starter type things that can help jog my creativity. Someone recommended writing 500 different name ideas, writing to exhaustion basically. So I'll try that , but have also looked into literary references, Sanskrit words, Icelandic words, iThing, and nothing is sparking.
I don't think I'm looking for a name here as much as exercises that might help me come up with one, but if you have ideas based on my description I'll hear em. Don't want the word "mood" in the name though.
