Google + Digg = ?

There's a persistent rumor that crops up every few months about social news site Digg being acquired by ____ (insert company here). The latest, citing "multiple sources inside and outside Google", says that Google will buy Digg for $200M.

There's a persistent rumor that crops up every few months about social news site Digg being acquired by ____ (insert company here). The latest, citing "multiple sources inside and outside Google", says that Google will buy Digg for $200M. This is similar to a rumor in March that Digg was going to be acquired "soon" by Google or Microsoft or two other companies, according to "a source very close to the deal". In 2006, it was Yahoo who was going to buy Digg for $30M, at least if you believed "two sources close to Yahoo".

Whether the rumors turn out to be true this time or not, it's a common pastime to imagine what the name of a merged company will be. Of course, it's all but certain there would be no name change, and that each company or division would continue with its current name. But just for fun... what is your favorite?
