Memstor is a trademark in the US:

http://www.kingleetech.com/membrane-chemicals/additional-products/membrane-storage-products/memstor

I'd actually wondered about Membrain, but that's a different chemical

Sylk is an adult product whose URL I'm not visiting at the office.

I'd think Ignite is a standard-enough English word that no one could
reasonably claim exclusivity (but IANAL).
