 Uh, but everybody loves space invaders... :-)

Galanga is also close to Galago (the presence framework for Gnome).

Other suggestions (related to chili peppers):

Pequin - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pequin (seems ununsed - 7-8 times
stronger than jalapeno :-D)
Aji - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aji_pepper (i'm not 100% sure it is
ununsed, but it seems to be)

Of those two I like Pequin the best...
