I am partial to excalibur since it is the tool used by the king to rule the land.

Err what does the product do ? I believe a name which emphasizes on the feature of the product would help.

Just a quick FYI (I didn't vote for any of the names):

There are over 3100 US trademarks on the choices you've offered here, so you may want to do a bit of research on those 3,100 before you reach a final decision.

Trademarks are only applicable to like products.

If he was to start making hard drives, he could not call them the Barracuda....

But if he made boats, he could call his boats barracuda's (granted that there arent any boat manufacturers that have that name trademarked already)

Of course. So he'd best be advised to look at those 3,100+ trademarks and make sure someone's not trademarked a line of dedicated servers -- or the words "Head Surfer".

additionally - this is not a "product name" per se - it is a internal project code name. so its not a big deal. it will be a fun code name though like we did with project mercury - but the branding of those servers is actually Tranxactglobal and gnax.
