Help me choose a name for a new company


Calydon

Recommended Posts

I'm in an entrepreneur class where we need to design and write a business plan and prepare ourselves for starting a new company.

 

The idea I have is to start a graphics outsourcing company for the casual game, casino game market, and maybe in the future, AAA game titles.

 

I put up an explanation of my business idea here:

and the survey is here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=ChQN...QT5FpQ6EQ_3d_3d

 

Thanks to anyone who takes the time to fill it out. It's really short - just a list of names and another question.

your welcome

There was a time when I questioned the ability for the schizoid to ever experience genuine happiness, at the very least for a prolonged segment of time. I am no closer to finding the answer, however, it has become apparent that contentment is certainly a realizable goal. I find these results to be adequate, if not pleasing. Unfortunately, connection is another subject entirely. When one has sufficiently examined the mind and their emotional constructs, connection can be easily imitated. More data must be gleaned and further collated before a sufficient judgment can be reached.

Only two bits of advice:

 

1. Choose something that can be said clearly and intelligibly on the phone. There is nothing more tedious than spending the next ten years enunciating and spelling it all out.

 

2. Do what I did. Bought a bottle of absinthe, gathered my friends and todl stories and drank teh absinthe until the name emerged naturally.

 

 

Note that part two bolsters part one.

Awesome. >_<

 

Note that I mean absinthe with the whole burning spoon of sugar in it. I can imagine doing an evening of straight absinthe, I just can't imagine such an evening producing any names other than 'Hngrk' and 'Sweetjebus'

1) How about 'Thin Kit'? It's vaguely techie, and provokes a parsing hiccup, which makes it memorable.

 

2) Don't choose Tolkein names no matter how big a geek you are.
