    As we all know, when trying to give something a cool name (for example a dog or softball team), there are a few choices.

    1. Use English, but replace the boring letters with awesome letters like X, Z, and non-English letters/diphthongs/digraphs like œ, ë, È, etc. to show off how xtremez it is.

    2. Latin. Gives a philosophical feel. Canis Est Valde would make a classy dog name.

    3. Greek. Gives a scholarly, scientific feel as most math and science terms are Greek words put together.

    I'd like to name something using Greek that translates to something like "complex sound" (complex as in complicated, multifaceted). Some playing around with English->Greek->Greeklish translators gave me "Periplokophony" but I'm not sure that has the right ring to it. Any Greek speakers here have some more euphonic suggestions with a similar meaning?
