Default "Just for fun" contest

Okay all you home brewers. Here is the deal...

I have decided to go commercial! I am starting a cider works company! I am very excited and I have all my ducks lined up. Before I open my own facility I am going to start with a custom crush practice and have a winemaker make my product to my specifications, with his equipment.

The biggest problem I've found is not distribution or the maker but it is my trademark!

My logo is a badger, actually a honey badger and badger has been trademarked and there is no way to use it....
I have a bunch of names that I've tried to come up with and each one has been trademarked somehow and is not usable...

Badger is off the table so it cannot have the word badger in it...

Here is the logo:


So I'm curious what kind of names you folks can help me come up with that would describe a the vicious creature like a badger, something relentless and fearless.

Here was a few notes of me spit balling:
•••Furry Fighter Cider / Works••••
•••Ferocious fighter Cider••••
Relentless Ratel
Rabble-Rouser Cider.

I like rabble-rouser but I have just found out that Boston beer Company has trademarked "rouser" and their pockets are deeper than mine so to avoid a lawsuit I have to take that off the table.

He was a few notes of me spitballing:

•••Furry Fighter Cider / Works••••
•••Ferocious fighter Cider••••
Relentless Ratel
Rabble-Rouser Cider

Fearless Fighters Cider was on my list but will not work because of fearless brewing in Oregon.

Another idea is vicious varmint Cider...

I'm curious what THIS community has for ideas on catchy names.

The person that comes up with the winner will get some free hard cider when I hit the shelves.
(It's not all sweet, I will be doing a lot of hopped ciders)

I would scout on http://reddit.com/r/hbl


That community may be able to help you sooner.

Your logo could pass for a ferret, too, if you're re-branding

Since your logo is similar to the dragon logo from mortal kombat, you could name it Mortal Wombat!

The problem with using the same word in another language is the trademark office looks for that in multiple languages so that doesn't work..

Mortal wombat, LOL, funny but not quite the image I was looking for.
But thank you, it put a big smile on my face

I like Ferocious, just plain Ferocious. Also, Mortal Wombat and Don't Care are cracking me up.

How about a synonym for badger (the verb)? Bedevil, Brown Off. There are some funny ones here: http://thesaurus.babylon.com/badger
