More info about your place would be helpful. What kind of oven are you using? Are you going for any kind of specialty pizza creations, or more traditional? Is there anything special about your location?

What does "atto" mean? other than 10E-18.

I'm not sure how much help some folks in the US can be when it comes to naming a pizzeria in Finland.

A couple thoughts: while I love pizza made with sourdough, if it's made with sourdough, it's NOT NY-style pizza. Maybe that doesn't matter given that you're in Finland.

I don't see "Magma Pizza" as a great name if you're making NY-ish pizza as it won't be baked a particularly high temps.

How about "WildFire Pizza"? Wild Yeast and Fire Baked.

Some nice suggestions so far.

Google says "atto" means an act or action in Italian.  I don't see that it means anything in Finnish, though.
  Atto Boy Pizza?

Something topical:
 Pizza di NATO
Nato means natural-born or innate in Italian, so it kinda even works without the caps.

I understand that Finland is the happiest country on earth, and that you guys like to make up compound words:
 Onnellinenpizza
Happy Pizza, I think?  I sincerely apologize if I am butchering your language, but you get the idea  :)

No Name Pizza
There actually was a place by that name in Indianapolis back in the 1980s. A friend of mine was one of the owners.

OP says New York-style. Authentic would be the name followed by a tag line with attitude, like:

No Name Pizza
You gotta problem with that?

I'm only half-joking about this name. English is very widely spoken in Finland (probably better than I do in many cases). This name could be a topic of conversation that would spread the word about the new pizzeria.

If it’s local:

Lemon Pies.

The name will trigger the “huh?” reflex. Folks will want to know who the heck is selling lemon pies. That’s interest, curiosity. Then they’ll say, Ah, pizza, I know what Lemon Pies means.. like all us locals do.
