Worst product names ever?

A while ago, I decided that EasyMock.NET wasn't quite up to scratch, and I was going to try to write a replacement. I'm not doing much .NET development at the moment, so it's not an issue any more (and when I go back to .NET I'll look at Rhino Mocks which sounds promising). However, I did get as far as picking a name for the new project. I settled on PowerMock in the end, but went through a pun worthy of Simon Tatham first...

Firstly, it would have to start with "N" wouldn't it? NUnit, NCover etc... Well, what sounds a bit like mocking something, and starts with "N". How about "NSult", to be pronounced "insult"?

Next, suppose we wanted a new unit test system at the same time. Maybe something like TestNG but for .NET. Something to judge your code and decide whether it was good or not. Ooh, that sounds a bit like a court-room drama. How about "NJury"?

Of course, they work best when you put them together - adding NSult to NJury...

Sorry. I'll go to bed now, promise.
