Then what do you suggest?   I think deriving from regular words is 
really the only way to do it, but I agree that "International 
Language" has been done to death so not a good idea.  Another genre 
of names that I would avoid would be the "New(speak)" varieties.  So 
far I think "Pandunia" has the coolest name for a global auxlang.
