A new order for our times?

So apparently there's some momentum for an EU-style bloc for the Pacific. But the real question is what do we call it? The suggestions of Pacific Union or the East Asian Union have a critical flaw in that the names are far too bland - like the African Union, they reek of being a pallid imitation of the European Union. I therefore make the modest proposal that the name of the proposed union aim for something grander. Something like:
The Greater East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere!
It has potential, no?
