Coming up with names for new fonts

How do you come up with names for fonts?

For my designs I have related them to historical figures, foods, altered words, and strings of meaningless sounds, but sometimes I'm stumped as to what to call a new font.
What do you do?

I'm working on a couple right now that were inspired by the outlook or attitude of two different organizations. One has a modern take on classical principles, the other has a totally forward-looking view, so the names of the faces are inspired by those two organizations.
