What should the newest Airwindows wordlength reducer be called?

This poll will run until February 1, when the plugin will come out (that Wednesday).

The purpose is to name the ultimate Airwindows wordlength reducer. It shouldn't use the word Dither, because the plugin's made by taking technology from the Naturalize dither, and removing the dither part. It produces a very accurate and quiet wordlength reducer that causes audio to seem more natural than it is, perhaps spookily so. It gates to digital black silence and causes a tiny characteristic noise as it switches off, which is much quieter than the loudness of traditional TPDF dither.

This will be free, and if I hit a certain goal on my Patreon it can also be the first plugin to be open-sourced. Therefore, this plugin (in Audio Unit and Mac and PC VST) will be available for people to use, under whatever name it gets.

It will come in two versions: 24 bit, and 16 bit (which won't require the plugin BitShiftGain to get correct 'dithering' for CD). You're allowed to suggest pairs of names: please don't use copyrighted names like Batman and Robin as I legally won't be able to use those, having no right to use them. However, other sorts of names (the video game Marathon had level-making tools called Forge and Anvil) are fair game.

You can select one, or multiple, options, and change your vote.

Please pick a name that is either useful, cool, funny, or awesome, and ideally something that can be read in a menu and recognized in a plugin slot on a DAW mix. Short words are good but not absolutely required. Really long stuff, or non-ASCII characters, won't work.

I am not a government agency, and not bound by typical commercial rules, so within the rather loose standards given, I will honor this amusing publicity stunt by using the winning name (or names, if it's a pair for 24 and 16 bit). Then, the best dither in the world for perhaps a long time will have been named by the Internet. Please make it worth all our while, so a generation of musicians and mixers don't have to put little bits of sticky tape on their screens to hide the embarrassing name :)
