Xnergetically confusing

Xnergy

This name seems poor on two counts: the "X-" prefix is way overused by now, and it also has ambiguous pronunciation.

Take off the "X" and we're left with the dangling "-Nergy". This can be related to that awful NRG ("energy") abbreviation (wow, just spell the letters N-R-G and it sounds like energy! the letters themselves don't stand for anything)

Is it supposed to be pronounced "X - Energy" or just "X Nergy"? To further complicate things, which syllable is stressed?

Why do they love inclding that x? Were they trying to say energetically or extra energetically? I dunno, this is just stupid for me.

I think it's meant to be pronounced "synergy," in a tortured fashion.
