I am starting up a tutoring and test prep company and am searching for a name.  I've been researching some Latin and ancient Greek terms and few of them lend themselves to a business name.  I have to imagine myself saying it as I answer the phone "______ Tutoring and Test Prep".  I wanted to see what the word "illuminate" translated sounds like.  I think it fits with the general philosophical mindset of tutoring and teaching.  If anyone has any other suggestions, feel feel to post them.

Can't think of any Greek at the moment that wouldn't sound awkward or confusing.  How about Latin lumina ("lights")?
