I'll chime in with some name ideas just for consideration ;)

Mmm, yeah, maybe that's just you ;)

Kabuki is not bad, though somewhat old-fashioned, no?

Here are a couple of Japanese ones:
- abarenbo (a hooligan ;))
- aite (the person/entity with which you share something: nice for
AJAX since it does depend on some server-side stuff, whatever language
you choose)
- gumbai (ancient, hand-crafted fan used by sumo referees, and yes,
most of my knowledge of japanese comes from being a sumo fan)
- haru (spring, as in rebirth)
- ketsudan (determination)
- yukata (summer kimono, connotation of lightweight, airy...)
