I'm in an up-and-coming prog rock band right now and after many attempts at settling for a name we went for "Phantomile" (evidently because of Klonoa), because of how abstract and good sounding it is, and because the dream land name kind of fits nicely with the direction our sound and lyrical content are going to right now.
However, since then I've been concerned with the possibilities of Namco deciding to take legal action against us. I know they've been somewhat agressive with people using Pac-Man's likeness and things like that, so I wondered if naming our band Phantomile might be a bad idea in the long run - if we keep the name until we gather some following and then get forced to change it, it might hurt us a bit (like how the name Majesty was getting some buzz until that band had to change their name to Dream Theater for legal reasons).
So, do you think Namco would force us to drop the name? The other band members have been pretty reluctant to let go of it and I'm not sure what to do.
