So far I haven't discussed the name for the amplifier, I've batted a couple of ideas around but finally I can now reveal the name I have chosen.

Having completed the artwork, I can now attach this
This is in the Maori language of New Zealand. Titiwai are glow-worms, a natural occurrence in many of the caves around New Zealand. These sites are all sacred to the Maori people. One of the glow worm sites, the Waitomo Caves, are one of New Zealand's premier tourist attractions.
Waru means Eight. So the name for this amplifier translates directly as "Eight Glow-worms"
The design is with the engraver, brass plate pending
