How about one of the Greek Gods of wind. :)

In Greek mythology, the Anemoi were wind gods who were each ascribed a cardinal direction, from which their respective winds came, and were each associated with various seasons and weather conditions.

The four Anemois (Wind Gods) were:

1. Boreas was the Greek god of the cold north wind and the bringer of winter. Boreas is depicted as being very strong, with a violent temper to match. He was frequently shown as a winged old man with shaggy hair and beard, holding a conch shell and wearing a billowing cloak.

2. Notus was the Greek god of the south wind. He was associated with the desiccating hot wind of the rise of Sirius after midsummer, was thought to bring the storms of late summer and autumn, and was feared as a destroyer of crops.

3. Zephyrus was the Greek god of the west wind. The gentlest of the winds, Zephyrus is known as the fructifying wind, the messenger of spring, and bringer of light spring and early summer breezes.

4. Eurus was the Greek deity representing the unlucky east wind. He was thought to bring warmth and rain, and his symbol was an inverted vase, spilling water.

Hmmm, Dragon's Breath sounds pretty cool and I love the mythology tie-in that Dragonlite mentioned.
And David, I've been a very bad girl this year so a lump of coal is really all I deserve. LOL!

NIce!!!
dont ahve a good name like some others but i did want to mention that david has awesome service and is a very honest person when i was speaking to him. his wite is fantastic as well

i was able to order a machine from him the friday before thanksgiving and he actually drove almost 2 hours to meet me half way to deliver it the following tuesday

i am happy with the machine and it does what it is expected to do however my torch needs a little bit more poet then 10l so i may be looking to get 1 mor aching to run it at 100% instead of 80%

all and all these do what they should and david won't sell you anything that he does not already have on hand
