Name that search engine!

Dear HiveMind, please help me think of a name for a new web project I'm building. It's essentially a "genealogy search engine in a box", based on a customized build of Apache Solr. It will allow moderately tech savvy genealogy geeks, whether individual genealogists or small genealogy organizations, an easy way to index and search datasets of names and any related data, with a nice front end UI for doing searches. Notable features include faceted search (by record year, record town(s), record source, etc.), soundalike surname searching, customizable given name synonyms (i.e. searching for "Becky" also finds Rebecca), and pop-up Google Maps linked to record locations. And the entire project will be open source. The project is already about 90% completed, but I need something snappy to call it before I can release it. Ideas welcome!

Breathylzer Project Title

My group and I are looking for a creative project title. The project is for a design class. Our idea is to have a locker where people put their keys before a night of drinking, and in order to get the keys back, they must blow into a breathalyzer to prove their ability to drive. [more inside]

Need an acronym, ASAP!
