Seeking name for new Rye/Wheat blend

I decided that I wanted a simple Rye/Wheat blend for the end of summer, so I constructed this fairly simple recipe.  I think I might have underhopped it, especially considering the Rye character which at first take seems to demans a little more upfront bitterness.  We will have to see though - I put it down in primary on Sunday.

I'm also looking for a name for it - apparently they were all of of Creativity at the homebrew shop.  Thoughts?
