Getting a catchy name for your next software or web application is important in these days of Web 2.0. Web surfers, and Google have wizened up to the old “how-to-get-cheap-life-insurance-info.info” trick.
You need quick, you need interesting, you need fun. But at the same time, you need something that’s somehow descriptive of your service. One of the things that, in the beginning, made Twitter such a hit was that the name – while not a “real” word, was totally descriptive of what the service provided: a place for people to “twitter’ little thoughts as they stream by.
I was very amused when i came across the Web 2.0 Name Generator; just hit “Generate Name!’ and it’ll spew out all kinds of Web 2-ish potential product names for you. The catch, of course, is to find one that actually fits your service. Catchy name software generators like the Web 2 Name Generator might not give you the best domain name right off the bat, but they can get your imagination flowing and LEAD you somewhere that’ll be a perfect fit.
