Long barge: propane (C3H8)
Long long barge: butane (C4H10)



Come to think of it, naming the longness of patterns like these in a similar fashion to hydrocarbons might be interesting.
How about this?

That also works.

Now what could simulate:

- Isomers such as isobutane, isopentane and neopentane
- Alkenes
- Alkynes
- Benzene, toluene, limonene, other aromatics
