+1 to zorg, for various reasons:

It's pronouncable. People can say zorg, and it's less syllables than z3c 
if you manage to pronounce the latter.

It's cute:

* zorg sounds like an evil alien emperor


   "Yes emperor Zorg, immediately!"

* zorg sounds like a very biological species of alien: Swarms of zergs, 
I mean, zorgs, completely overwhelmed the Terran command post.

* zorg is actually a common word in Dutch. It means "care", and can be 
used in contects like healthcare. Steve Alexander saw a van here with 
the word "zorg" once and was highly amused.
