EDIT: We have a winner but everyone who made a suggestion (within the timelimit) wins! Please see my post on page 4 for what you have won!!!!!!!!!!!
I really need your help. Hi guys so here is the story.
1. App got submitted early this morning.
2. Searched app world for my app.
3. I found out someone has recently created an app for the torch which has the exact same name with a "- Live Wallpaper" attached to it.
4. I guess I need a new name. I don't want to change because I like the name but I a.) don't want to get suied and b.) I am more concerned about someone thinking the other app is mine which is just an animated gif background for two specific phones.
5. I needed a name yesterday and I can't come up with one so now I am turning to you guys.
So here is my app. It is called Fireworks Finale. It is a fireworks app to play around with. It has a pretty decent particle engine but for future updates I may switch to an off the self particle engine as I really don't like working in AS3 and I would rather someone else do the work for me. I have a big updated which I am going to submit very soon but I wanted to make sure I got in for the playbook offer. So here is the link to my app.
So please give me names. I would prefer "Fireworks" be in the name so it is easier to find but I guess I could just add a "-". Since I don't have anything else to offer any good names get a kudos(this seems appropriate as you are helping me with my app) and the best one I will mark as the solution.
Here are ones I have already thought. I don't think they are any good but if they are (and i am just to close to this problem) let me know and I will use them.
UPDATE: I am going to stop taking submissions at 7pm CST today the 30th of March
Solved! Go to Solution.

This is always fun haha -- feels like a competition!
Here's my submission:
Fireworks Free-for-all! or Free-for-all Fireworks!
i'll rethink and resubmit if anything new comes to mind

Wow you guys are quick!
@JRab, I like the name a lot! I am concerned people will get mad because it isn't free and it has "free" in the title. I could be one of those developers who does that so I get tons of hits when people search for "free" but I am not sure I want to be one of those guys.
@jtegen, I am clearly too close to this naming issue because I loved your name too but then I looked at a paper I threw on the floor which names I scratched off as not likable and there was "Fireworks Bonanza". I still like the name but for some reason I like it more when someone else suggested it.
Thanks guys keep them comming. I have to make a decision pretty soon and these two are already great ones.

I'm with JRab, this is fun and does feel like a competition.
Here are some ideas:
Now, if you wanted to drop the fireworks:
Extreme Explosions (probably misleading but i'm just brainstorming lol)
I'm going to keep thinking about this as the day goes on - hope these help!

BBFireworks puts you alphabetically in a better position in the App World search result list. Fireworks Finale for Playbook would differentiate you from the other app, but might step on his/her toes if they are thinking of porting.

@thesmileman: i agree that would seem a little misleading! the thinking goes on
@jtegen: LMAO @ Bonanza -- love that word !
@wingflap: i think RIM might dissalow the use of BB (or anything BlackBerry related) in the front of the name of an application. So a little risky.
