What's in a name...

Ah yes, the title... I chose Thanatol as it's rooted from the Greek word Thanatos, meaning death. The -ol I just tacked on to make it sound like a pill. Originally I thought of Thanatin, but I found that Thanatin already exists as a particularly potent pesticide. Other options included: Thanatyl, Thanatose, Thanatonin, Thanator, and my other favorite; Thanatoft. But I may get sued for that one.
