Fireplace, Fast Forward, and Doorknob

Why don't we have a more creative name for the fireplace? It's not like this is a new invention. Sure, the word is perfectly descriptive. This is the place in your home where you light a fire. But is that the best we can do? No Latin derivation? How about pyroforum? Or something completely creative like splotzum?

I can live with "fast forward," since it is only as old as the cassette tape. But we need to do something about "fireplace."

I too can live with fast forward, but how about rewind? Are you actually winding a DVD or CD backwards?
The iPod solves this by going graphic only - no mention of FF or RW...
