Need opinions on new company name.

Hey guys and gals.
Starting another production company and trying to nail down the name I want. I've come to two:

How about just Rogue Productions or Rogue Pictures? Already taken?
Just seems to flow better....

If not, Rogue Icon Productions has a nice ring to it.

Rogue Icon has an interesting religious overtone. Sort of a bad boy forgotten or ignored "God" figure perhaps, a Rogue Icon. Like an Angel gone slightly bad. Hey, what? You guys know I'm on the dark side of the road.

Of the two that gets my vote for the above. Perhaps "Fogotten Icon", "Lost Icon", "Hidden Icon"?

Icon is Mel Gibson's company. Just in case you thought there might be some confusion :)

Gotta keep the "rogue" part, Sean...I mean, we are talking about Dylan here. ;)

The only trouble I see with Rogue Icon is in the spoken form. Anyone else hear "Ro-guicon?" Because of that I like Rogue Legend a little better.

Then you have R.I.P. Maybe good if you're focusing on horror flicks, but otherwise it could be interpreted as an early prediction of the quick demise of the company... :)

I find it ironic that you want to use the word Rogue (no longer obedient, belonging, or accepted and hence not controllable or answerable; deviating, renegade: a rogue cop; a rogue union local. ) and yet you want <EDIT> approval <EDIT> opinions? ;)

Good try...
But in my dictionary "opinion" and "approval" don't fall on the same page. :)

LOL! You are such a rascal!

Which reminds me...picture our fair Dylan when you hear a common definition: a rascal; scoundrel (hah!); a fun-loving, mischievous person. Now, is Dylan the definitive rogue, or what? :)
