Material naming

Using materials which exist in the real world would be boring. Making up fantasy names would give a much better flair.

Wacky idea to come up with names: What works for elements of the periodic table should also work for us. So how about naming materials after people who played an important role in the development of TMW? When we disguise it well enough noone would notice.
