Early test-marketing under the 'Haggani' label proved less scary, due to english speakers being more familiar with double g's rather than q's unaccompanied by the letter "u".

Also 'Haggani' sounded too much like 'haggis' -- some people in the test audience experienced changes in hunger levels, rather than changes in fear levels.
