I went with Lethe and Obol, just because they roll strangely off the tongue.

It seems to me that a lot of those other names are already taken.

Yup, there is Pan that orbits inside the Encke Division, and Pandora orbits out in or near the F-ring. Clear skies to you.

I picked Styx and Orpheus, although I was thinking it's too bad they don't have Coyote and Roadrunner as choices.
