Hopefully it'll be something similar enough to Banjo-Kazooie to give people a good idea of what to expect, but not so similar that the lawyers will come a-knocking.

Ukulele and Bongo?

I like the idea of Uku & Lele (or Leilei/Leilie), it's a simple but effective title, it also sounds really fluid. Bongo & Ukulele, while it sounds neat doesn't achieve the same simplicity or fluidness (it's just too long).

The problem lies in the word ukulele which has four syllables (yoo-kuh-ley-lee), which when combined with other words just makes the title longer and less fluid. Just look at banjo-kazooie it has waaay less syllables, which leads to a more fluid sounding title (ban-joh kuh-zoo-ee). That's the reason why I think separating Ukulele in two is the best option.

To be fair guys, Scrubber changed his idea to Bongo-Kulele, missing off the U. It flows much better and isn't a bad suggestion. Kulele isn't a real instrument, but neither is Kazooie. Kulele misses something off, Kazooie adds something on. No problem there.

Uku-Lele is my favourite name so far, but the word 'ukulele' is quite difficult to read. It's not an English word; it uses Hawaiian pronunciation and that might be a bit confusing for kids? Maybe I'm over thinking it.
