The Conundrum of the Clever Domain Name

I just got a reminder from my domain registrar that a name I registered is coming up for renewal. That name?
Does that look funny to you? Let me break it down: NaCl (Sodium Chloride, ie Salt) and K9 (Canine, Dog). Salt Dog. Salty Dog. Get it? Kinda cute, but maybe too clever by half.
Thus my conundrum… I like the domain name as it’s short and meaningful. It’s easier to say than (why don’t they make LLC a TLD???). I think it appeals to geekier set, but I don’t want to seem elitist (an unforgivable flaw in this benighted age). Should I start using it on a regular basis, or should I stick with the one I’ve been using?
