I'd worry less about names, and get to the Nerfing part right away. I'd wait up on the Maverick for your first blaster, though. It isn't the very best performer out of the box, and the modders will tell you that it takes some work to make it perform even decently.
Every recommendation on blasters in this thread is right on; the NiteFinder and AT2000 are arguably the best starters for you to build the arsenal with.
The NiteFinder performs surprisingly well out of the box, and when you modify it with PVC, brass, CPVC, PETG, or a Crayola marker barrel, the performance increase is an eye opener. This site has all the modifications you need/ want for it.
The AirTech series, and the 2000 in particular, will sorely disappoint you with out-of-the-box performance. We're talking 10-12 feet on four pumps, the maximum before the overpressure relief valve kicks in. The problem lies in the barrels.
Again, modify this puppy with a new barrel(s) and we're looking at a minimum of 60 foot ranges, and the really range-crazy guys get them close to (and over) the 100 foot mark. Just about all you need is here at the site...use the "search" function and you'll be set.
The only other possible recommendation for a first blaster would be the Tech Target Set. Some even come with two pistols nowadays! That's another really easy modification, just a length of your preferred barrel material, pretty much shoved into the existing barrel opening, and you've got a 40-50 foot shooter for starters!
EDIT; For this modification I used a short length of CPVC; I don't think that brass or PVC would be so easy to 'shove in', maybe a Crayola barrel would. Just wanted to clarify that. -P-
The most satisfaction you can get is to modify one of these blasters for exponentially increased performance, then actually applying your modifications in a warring situation. There's lots of great ideas with wars, beyond just CTF or deathmatches (though those are the most popular, and CTF is my favorite).
So get out and Nerf!

EDIT: By the way, my clan's name is the redneck terrorists; redneck is a good word if you live in the south (when you use it lightly ). But anyway, foam or nerf are general words in naming clans.
