I hope it has early 80s Atari 2600 cartridge art font as it's name. And is some chemical induced combo of orange, brown and black.

Because that's what I think of when I think of blimps.

That and Blimpie subs, which seem to no longer be around, but I liked em.

They seem to favour names starting with the words 'Spirit of'.

How about 'Spirit of Figs'.

Well, they  have named at least one after an Ohio locale.
