Cylinder Rolling Robot Idea, Needs A Name!

So I came up with the idea of a cylinder-shaped rolling robot. It will be able to follow people around and talk to them. It will be about a foot wide, 3-7" long, and 3-7" high.

Still a concept, but I see one in the future.

It definitely looks like a miniature Cyclon, or one that was squished at least. How about Cylog? (look kinda like a log with wheels and a Cylon eye) Or maybe Cyroller?

It also kinda looks like the robot eye of the robot: Maximilian, from the movie "The Black Hole". Hmmm, Max-mini or mini-Max, tinyMax, Max-rollo?

He would be in the shape of a pop can or a roll of quarters, or pringles can. How about Pepsi-Maximilian, QuarterMax, or BetaMax? AlphaMax? MetaMax? LaserMax?

Maybe combine some names? CyMax?

Anyway these might get you started with some more ideas:)

Lol, just noticed @rgordon has Maximilian as his Avatar....
