I agree to this analysis. Phonetically not confusing, and disallowing all 
names that has a "pic", "ture", "pho", "to", "im", "age" in a 
photo/picture/image system (since they are used one place or the other) is 
too strict.
If the proposal for instance was "Pickata", "Pikala", or otherwise 
phonetically very similar, I would think the concern is substantiated.
