That's not idiomatic Latin. "Easy Search" wouldn't work well with Latin; closest would be "quaesitio facilis" - an easy search or an easy inquiry. Scrutator, Quaesitor, Indagator (i.e., Tracker), Speculator, and Explorator would be the most idiomatic Latin names; and Explorator is already taken (and Speculator has the wrong connotations in English, and scrutator and indagator just sound wrong).

Nice idea, though. Me, I'm rather partial to Mycroft.
