Help me name my achievements

I've been working on remaking one of my favorite games (Circus Atari) for the ipad / iphone and I'm at a point where I'm not really sure what to do. I've built achievements into the game because, well, I'm a huge xbox achievement whore and I always thought it would be fun to create my own. I'm stuck on what to name the achievements however. I'm not really coming up with anything very fun or witty, and I don't want to just name them what they do.

So this post is to ask everyone here on ideas for names for the chieves. I'm going to draw little icons for them as well but I can't draw them until I know what they are called.

The achievement system isn't integrated into plus+ or open feint. It only exists in the game so there are no limits to anything.

Again the game I'm remaking is Circus Atari. It's like Arkanoid but there are 2 balls (clowns) and instead of a paddle they land on a see-saw.

Here is a screen from my game.


Here is a list of achieves I'm tracking so far. If you don't like any or you think of any good ones let me know.

Achievements:
In 1 game

Clear a row
Clear 5 rows
Clear 25 rows
Clear 100 rows

5 launched high in a row
25 launched high in a row - High Five!

5 launched low in a row -
25 launched low in a row - Low Rider

Clear 1 row in 1 jump
Clear 2 rows in 1 jump
Clear 3 rows in 1 jump

Pop 50 with pin finger
Pop 100 with pin finger

If KI2 came out on the ipad I would pay $50 for it.
