How I Choose Project Names
Naming is hard.
But when inspiration strikes, I need something to call the project!
How do I do it?
First, I take the main theme of the project and find terms associated with it. I also look at synonyms of either the main theme or any of the terms that caught my interest as a name.
Next, I ponder on any spelling varients that could work. I'm not good at this step.
Sometimes I look at domain names. This is the first step for a lot of people but I like to come to the domain name with some ideas of possible names.
Last, I pick the closest thing I like. If the idea catches on there will be time for a more robust naming session.
