Pimp Our New Ride - Part III

Right now the plan is to open up the community based blog for signups later this evening, with posting beginning tomorrow. The only problem is the name.... We've been through two iterations of the naming process Pimp Our Ride and Pimp Our Ride - Part II, but I've yet to get a keeper.

I was initially leaning toward calling it Wizbang Community, but (no offense to JimK) it's didn't exactly knock my socks off. Here's the list of other possibilities I culled from comments on the initial post and my own thoughts.

Wizbang Commons
Wizbang Exchange
Wizbang Bomb Squad
Wizbang Nation
Wizbang Crossroads
Wizbang Lobby
Wizbang Cafe
Wizbang Bar & Grill
Wizbang Lounge
Wizbang Crossroads
Wizbang Backpage
As of now I'm leaning toward calling the site Wizbang Nation, but I've already changed my mind several times today, so that's not a real strong commitment on my part. I've really got no idea what the final name will actually be...

This is your last chance to weigh in on those choices or suggest a new one before launch...

Update: Two late challengers - Wizbang Exploded and Wizbang Powder Keg

Update 2: It's late and I'm tired and cranky, in no small part due to small children who think midnight is half time for a nights sleep. No signups tonight. I'm one line of Javascript away from the finish line and I must sleep... The name is picked. It got a lot easier once I separated the URL that will be used from the actual name... Monday signups open, and Caption Contest winners will be announced in the morning...

I also like the "Wizbang Mine" mentioned earlier, ignoring the bad humor. It can be considered a takeoff on things like "My Yahoo."

Alternatively, it can have the double entendre of a place for digging up valuables. You could be a real bunch of mother loders.
