Skoolie as a Commercial Venture. Name?

I am contemplating taking the plunge and trying my hand as a legit party bus for hire company. The requirements are pretty simple:

I'll need to Create a business (DBA etc)

$5M in liability insurance

Commercial vehicle registration

Commercial Drivers Liscense

DOT vehicle inspection

Certificate of Authority from the state DOT ($325) This is the permit that allows you legally to charge money for carry passengers on a bus

That's it. I'm working on figuring out exactly how much everything will cost. I talked to a buddy of mine who drives for a limo company, and they get $200/hr for their party bus and usually are out an average of 6 hours. Not bad for one evenings worth of work!

Now for a name.....anybody have a creative name for a party bus company? Unfortunately i don't think i can really use the word "Jacuzzi" as it's a registered trade mark....although it is kind of like the word kleenex which is used to describe all facial tissue regardless of the manufacturer.
