Web server name?

When our search engine displays results lists from Web documents, we need
to display the source of the documents in the list. Right now, all we can
offer is the name of the host, which may or may not be meaningful... and
usually rather ugly.

Thus, it's occurred to us that we'd like to see a way to ask a server
"What's your name?" and get back something like "Verity Corporate

Is anyone else thinking about this? Shall we just forge ahead and make a
proposal for a way to implement this? I'm thinking that perhaps it should
be an element in the header of the default document. Ideas?
