Oh - I see... Hrmmm  Well, now I feel stupid.  I was wondering why no
one responsed to my earlier post saying the same thing...:->

Well.. my opinion would be to find a new series of names.  These are
kind of cool, but, for most people must seem sort of boring and
uninspired.  Hamm, slink, buzz.. They just don't evoke much more than
an 'oh'.

As far as something to replace them.. hrmm.  Geography has been
popular lately.. cities, rivers..  Something international would be
good.  Lakes?  Seas?  National parks?  Drinks?:->  

Oh, wait, I have 'real' things to do.. enough brainstorming..
