  1. Hey Al,

    I know I’m late to the naming party, but I had a few additional ideas sitting on my desk that I thought I’d share for fun.

    Luja –
    In Romani, this means strong, significant, and enthusiastic.
    I was thinking of the story of when you were born and the doctor
    saw your full name and said, “Ali – Lou – Ya…. Alleluia.”

    Pedal –
    I wanted something to do with the feet and this is both a
    noun and verb, so it’s also active. I like the sound of it.

    Blinky –
    This is what your figure appears to be doing, but it also reminds
    me of Slinky: “What walks down stairs, alone or in pairs…”
