I like that, too. Although the name may need some work...
The name is a pun. During WWII Curtiss designed a rear-engined, fighter called the XP-55 Ascender. The wings were at the rear, an it had a canard elevator at the front. The thing looked backwards to everybody, so it got the nickname "Ass-ender."
