What's in a name?

I realize that beverage names like Pepsi, Gatorade, Sprite, etc. don't really make alot of sense, but it seems to me that some of these new drink names are pushing the boundaries of ridiculousness. Below are two I saw advertised at the gas pump this week. They ain't exactly cheap either.

BooKoo? What does BooKoo do for you, I wonder? Maybe it makes you scary strong (like "Boo!Koo"), or maybe it makes you read faster ("BooK-oo"). Or maybe it's just a French drink that's been misspelled.

BooKoo. People will buy anything.
