Help me choose a name for my app

Hey folks,

I'm working on this habit-tracking app since January 2019, and it's finally ready for release.
Actually, I build this app using a single habit: working 30min on a side project at 9 PM every day.

The whole philosophy of the app is consistency over performance.
Shaping your identity using habits.

It's pretty different from the rest of the market, a very opinionated way of creating meaningful habits and measuring your success.

Originally it was going to be called Excellence, from the famous quote:
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit

The app is made to help you attain excellence.

But lately, another great name crossed my mind: Inertia.
It's great because there is the notion of motion, which is what habits are after all: repeated actions that build up over time (streaks), a force going in the right direction (identities & outcomes)

Both are great, I'm not able to decide which one is better, so I prefer to ask people which sounds better and is more expressive to them.

What do you think?

Which one sounds the best and is the most expressive?
  1. Excellence
  2. Inertia

    How about "Habit Rabbit?" :-P

    I think the functionality of the app can help name it. Are you tracking the "accomplishments" of the habits? Like todos in a way? I love looking for domain names and would be willing to help find a good one with you, if you want

    I've used this site to generate some names whenever I'm stuck. https://namelix.com/

    The ocean would never exist if there were no drops of water.

    A drop of water is a powerful as a thunderbolt.

    Dripping water hollows out stone, not through force but through persistence.

        I'd use something along water drops line

          Or something about dripping. There's an old tale that a guy fills out a whole lake by dripping water into it for years. It's phsycally impossible I know but it's a good analogy.
