Personally, I like feminine names for equipment. Not something sweet sounding and forgettable like Veronica or Sylvia but more hard edged like Ethel or Agnes. Now there’s something people would remember.

You could borrow from the animal kingdom, but let’s assume all the good ones are taken, shall we?  Who could forget the Salk Crocodile or Platypus? Hey, I think I’m onto something here.

Come to think of it, why do we hafta have all the eloquent names for speakers? We could just call them what they are, no?  How about Small Sound Boxes or Rectangular Speakers.

Maybe the hit-you-between-the-eyes approach would have better name recognition and retention. Perhaps Salk Nasty B*stard, or Little Ballbuster…hmmm…

I know I’ve thrown out some good ones here, and you’re welcome to use them as you wish, Jim, but I would appreciate a small royalty. You know, just to reward the out-of-box creativity!

Horizon
Skyscape
  or
Escape
S-scape
 or
Vera (meaing edge or verge) Fits in with Veracity line?

I heard these at the Audioholics event and I was impressed with this speaker.  I came up with these that came to mind when I thought of my listening experience:

Salk Finesse

Salk Premiere

Salk UC.  Ultimate Concept

Salk Majestic Monitor

Salk Shock and Awe Monitor

Salk Titan Mini

Salk Mammoth Mini Monitor or 3M for short

i also love the SoundBite name.

Its really funny that i saw this just now, me and another friend of mine were just talking last night about how awesome it would be if Salk were to make a speaker using the illuminator and the RAAL tweeter. Cuase he just finished building a little monitor with the illuminator and a dome tweeter, the Morel, and it sounded pretty fantastic, but i was thinking of how much better it would sound with a DM crossover and the RAAL. Id love to hear this little monster
