It Comes Down To This...

A while ago I made a list called "Band Name - Should I Change It?" Now I may be over thinking things, but about a month ago I came up with a name I loved and felt I had a good opportunity to escape this name I wasn't at all happy with. Now I've come to a really shitty crossroads and I don't know where to go next. I'm no longer as unhappy with Delusion Twin as I was before, and yet I think the new name Duality and the Republic is too long. I'm kind of indifferent to both of them. I think now I have to decide which is going to be the best in terms of publicity and word of mouth. Both work well on search engines, but Duality and the Republic is much harder/takes a longer time to type. I think Delusion Twin is easier to remember as well, so if somebody says "hey, check (this band) out", they'd be more likely to successfully do so if it were called Delusion Twin. One issue I have with Delusion Twin though is that it's singular, as opposed to plural, so it may always be viewed as a "project" rather than a band (which I find undesirable). What are your views on this? Please, help me decide, as I'm going slowly insane.
1Delusion Twin
A Damaged Machine


I'm a little more indifferent to this name than before, but the issue I had with it previously was that it was too pretentious/a little childish sounding and also that it was singular. So I feared it would forever be viewed as a "project" rather than a band, which I hope it will evolve into (in the same sense as Nine Inch Nails.
2Duality and the Republic
Uno


I feel this is a much more interesting name, and a little less pretentious. If the length weren't an issue (11 syllables) I would certainly keep it, but I think with word of mouth, the length can make it hard to remember and it could become a hindrance.
