Right. I've been around this issue before, with click vs activate. Living  
with a name that sounds odd is much better than waiting 7 years to change  
things, and then discovering that you have to live with a funny name to  
support the actual content out there.

Picking a name that will work is doomed to failure in the long run, so  
worrying too much about it is not the most useful way to spend our time.
