Suggested names and logos

(Note that the logo and name may not have been suggested by the same person.)
  1. DYAD--Drell-Yan Asymmetry Detector
  2. MANDY--Measuring Asymmetry in the Nucleon sea via Drell-Yan
  3. AESOP--Asymmetric Evanescent Sea Of Proton
  4. NSA--Nucleon Sea Asymmetry, with allusions to a spy agency and a quantity that is hard to determine. Clearly then we need a logo of a spy in a trench coat looking under the cover of the nucleon at some quarks and gluons flying around?
  5. SeaQuest  seaquest imageseaquest imageseaquest imageseaquest image  
  6. ASAP--Asymmetric Sea Around the Proton (since it is meson cloud which is responsible for the asymmetric sea. Yes, we are also sending the funding agencies a message)
  7. SPHINX--Sea of Proton at High and INtermediate X  sphinx logo
  8. DYNAMIC--Drell-Yan Nucleon Asymmetry Measurement by an International Collaboration
  9. Deep Sea:  The Drell-Yan Exploration  Deep Sea logo
  10. Deep Sea:  Exploring the Drell-Yan (v2) Deep Sea 2
  11. DY Quest  Quest
  12. SeaDY (pronounced seedy)
  13. DYNAMITE (or DYNAM"ite")--Drell-Yan Nucleon Asymmetry at the Main Injector of the Tevatron (or Drell-Yan Nucleon Asymmetry Measurement)
