If you're willing to use some sort of parity designator to pair states
with their mirror images you can cut down the total number of names

Home and Reverse Home
Home and Home'
Left Home and Right Home

If I make this correctly, there are 6 states which are their own mirror
image, so this eliminates 99 states, leaving 105 to name.
