Need a name a barbershop quartet

I'm getting together with 3 other members of the Barbershop Harmony Society to form a quartet. We still can't think of a good name for the group. Any good suggestions? It needs to be a name that isn't already taken.

FYI we are 4 men in our 30s, which makes us the 4 youngest members of our local chapter. We all work in engineering/tech/science fields, and based in Huntsville, Alabama (though I don't think any of us are Alabama natives).

How about The Be Sharps? It's witty at first, but seems less funny every time you hear it.

It's a barbershop quartet, so barbershop music and no instruments.

It's not the "Sharps," it's "The Be Sharps," with literal meanings like "be aware" or "be stylish" and a play on words with respect to the musical note "B#." Nothing whatsoever to do with edged weapons.

So you're techies who all practice a particular aural discipline? I hope you like good solid obscure wordplayů

SPOILER:
Since you're Sonic Techs, how about calling yourselves Tonic Sechs?


That either results in a grin or a groan, I know.
