Wordlab The premier free company, product & service naming resource 2015-08-01T03:27:09Z http://www.wordlab.com/feed/atom/ snark <![CDATA[Slight upgrade to The Wordlab Forum user interface]]> http://www.wordlab.com/?p=4327 2015-05-27T23:48:18Z 2015-05-27T21:55:02Z I just completed some small but powerful user interface improvements to simplify the Forum experience. There is now just one forum, re-named The Wordlab Forum, which appears only on the Home page of Wordlab. So now it makes no difference whether you have a naming project; a tagline project; a name & tagline project; any other kind of branding project; or sundry Wordlab issues, suggestions, or rants — whatever your subject, just post it as a new Topic to the one and only Wordlab Forum. Use tags to identify specific subject matter of your posts — see the Topic Tag Cloud for the most popular tags used in Forum posts.

snark <![CDATA[New Wedding / Event Planning Company Name Generator]]> http://www.wordlab.com/?p=4053 2015-05-13T23:18:02Z 2015-05-13T23:18:02Z Attention all wedding and event planners: We have just launched the latest in the family of famous Wordlab Name Generators, the Wedding / Event Planning Company Name Generator. If they’re going to the chapel, and they’re gonna’ get married, and it’s your job to plan the big event, and you don’t have a name for your company, then this is the name generator for you. But it’s not just for weddings! With 1,349,271 potential names, this name generator is ideal for any kind of business – personal, social, or professional – that does planning for weddings, parties, receptions, conferences, trade shows, state dinners, and any other kind of event.

So get out your contacts list and dust off that project management app, and let’s name your wedding / event planning company! I just took the generator out for a warmup spin, and here are 15 names it generated for me (actual mileage may vary):

Everything My Party
Sculpted Celebration
Andromeda Thinking Scenes
Bonfire Décor
Wedding Pro Functions
Lucky Silver Team
Show Weddings
Topaz Creations
Eventions Entertainment
Scenario By Enchantment
Big E Gurus
Creative Fêtes

snark <![CDATA[The action is heating up on the new forum]]> http://www.wordlab.com/?p=3921 2015-05-09T17:37:45Z 2015-05-09T17:35:37Z The new Wordlab site has been up and running for a week now, and so far so good. The action has been great on the new forums! You can access the Naming Projects forum right from the Home page; access the other two forums (Taglines & SlogansWordlab Issues) from the Forums page or the sidebar links. Please see this forum post, How to Use the Wordlab Forum, for instructions on how to get started, plus Pro Tips on how best to make use of the forum.

And take these words of wisdom to heart: Please strive to be generous with name and tagline/slogan suggestions for your fellow Wordlabbers. Often, even if you are stuck trying to name your own company or product, you might have great ideas for somebody else’s project, and helping them may unblock your path to the right name for your own project.

And not just a cosmetic one, but a functional one as well. Most importantly, we have a brand new Forum, and we’ve removed all the confusing and distracting Groups and Activity Streams. This means, for users of the old Wordlab, that you must sign up all over again for a new account. Sorry about that, but we wanted to have a fresh, clean start. You can still browse the OLD Forums here.

Learn more about us and how to get started using Wordlab on our About page. Now, let’s jump right into the action on our Naming Projects forum, below (you can view all of our Forums here).

Here are some juicy excerpts:

Buzzwords feed off their emotional resonances, not their ideas. And for pure resonance, “disruptive” is hard to beat. It’s a word with deep roots…. One way or another, the word evokes obstreperous rowdies, the impatient people who are always breaking stuff. It says something that “disrupt” is from the Latin for “shatter.”

Disrupt or be disrupted. The consultants and business book writers have proclaimed that as the chronic condition of the age, and everybody is clambering to be classed among the disruptors rather than the disruptees…. These days, people just use “disruptive” to mean shaking things up, though unlike my kindergarten teacher, they always infuse a note of approval….

The wonder is that “disruptive” is still clinging to life out there. There’s a market in language, too, and jargon starts to lose its market share when its air of novelty fades. “Thought leader,” “change agent” and “disruption,” too — as the words get stale, they’re in line to be disrupted themselves by scrappy new buzzwords that can once again convey an illusion of fresh thinking. That’s why jargon always has to replenish itself, the same way slang does — though like slang, it takes a while to work its way from the cool kids’ table to the outskirts of the lunchroom. It wouldn’t be surprising if some people are still saying “disruptive” a decade or two from now. After all, there are still people saying “far out” and wearing those big 1970s eyeglasses, too. The only difference is that slang owns up to being no more than a matter of fashion, while jargon always has to pretend that it’s something else.

Let’s hope this helps bring about the disruption of the ubiquity of Disruption!

Listen to the full story — very entertaining, and spot-on:

In case you’re not aware, there is a mind-numbing number of marijuana strains, each with their own unique properties of dopiness. Wikipedia has this to say about the naming of marijuana strains,

Varieties are often named by the breeder or grower to differentiate one from another. In competitive legal markets, such as in Amsterdam, there is significant pressure to create unique varieties that dominate the market. This results in a number of distinct variety names that may refer to very similar cannabis.

Likewise, when a variety becomes popular, many breeders and growers may produce variations of the same variety using the same or similar name. For example, Sour refers to a subset of sativa-dominant Cannabis strains.

I’ve taken the high road and avoided the obvious puns (yeah, as if) in putting together this massive list of the names of nearly 1,500 strains of marijuana, medical or otherwise, which you can see below. But first, here are my Top 25 favorite names from the list:

Apollo 13
Blockhead
Blue Velvet
Brainwreck
Buddha’s Sister
Cat Piss
Chemo
Dirty Harry
Dogshit
Dumpster
First Lady
Floater
Headcheese
Jesus
KGB
La Nina
Pit Bull
Reclining Buddha
Redhaired Sonja
Sabertooth
Stonehenge
Stuporsonic
Superglue
Taco
Velvet Elvis

And now for the straight dope: Here is the full, giant list of marijuana strain names, with many alphanumeric varietals (X #1, X #2, X#3, etc.) and plain country names removed for clarity. Enjoy (ir)responsibly:

The original inquiry, along with a selection of name suggestions, will be presented in each post. See ’em all at #Wordboard.

Need name for coffee / candy store (04/05/04)

My hubby and I are opening a coffee / candy store and are coming up short on name ideas. We will be selling old fashioned bagged candy (from gummies, to chocolates, to mints, to Swedish fish) as well as mixed nuts, and peanuts in bulk (up to 20lb bags). We will also be selling gourmet coffee beans and coffee supplies and accessories (grinders, coffee pots, filters, flavored creams…), not quite so much actual cups of coffee or lattes or things like that. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

Afternoon Delight
Bean Me Up
Beans & BonBons
BonBons & Beans
Bubbleshop
Candimental
Candy Cafe
Chewy Brewy
Dandy’s
Hubby’s Cafe
Jellies and Java
Jumpy’s

  1. Lolipop Flower
  2. Splinter Kiss
  3. Paint By Numbers
  4. Spiderbarrow
  5. The Fidget
  6. Bonefly
  7. Wartime Recipes
  8. Zenthrax
  9. Electric Furrytown
  10. Sniff Test

We thought we’d throw in a new band name for you, Cheese Machine, but, alas, it is already in use. Not to be confused with The String Cheese Incident. Oh well, no sense crying over Lost Cheese. (You’re welcome.)

Not exactly sure what this is, but I like it. A seemingly simple concept, Redacted Chimp is exactly that — pictures of chimpanzees with black (sometimes other colors) redaction strips covering their eyes, as if to mask their identities. Or perhaps their identities have been taken from them? Or they never existed in the first place? Or perhaps they are us, our proxy in the wild world? It’s impossible to say for sure, because interpretation is left to the viewer. But what makes this site even more interesting are the poetic fragments of narrative that are paired with each image. Here, for example, is the complete text that accompanies the image above:

Redacted Chimp 010. I love holding hands with your foot, in the rain, in the sun, in the rain. I love watching the rain careen off my hand, off your face, off the palm of my hand. There are plants in the world that nobody even knows the names of yet, that don’t even have names yet, that don’t have names. I love holding flowers in your hands, with my feet, in your rain. (Redacted Chimp 010)

A lovely image, probably triggered by the chimp in this picture holding hands with his (her?) own foot. And of course I love that it is also a musing on names.

Could the chimps be the poets here? Maybe they made this website as a way to reclaim their identities? Maybe this is the true beginning of the Planet of the Apes. Check it out, and report back here if you learn anything more.

Zinzin has a post featuring a video (audio with pictures) of James Joyce Reading Finnegans Wake, from 1929, with the text to follow along. But first, and before you quaff or even lay eyes on your first Guinness of the day, make sure you have a hearty and nutritious breakfast:

Night now!
Tell me, tell me, tell me, elm! Night night! Telmetale of stem or
stone. Beside the rivering waters of, hitherandthithering waters
of. Night!

~James Joyce, Finnegans Wake, p.216 lines 2-5

I have just launched a new naming agency, Zinzin, that creates powerful product and company names to propel and differentiate brands beyond their competition. We help elevate a company’s messaging above the generic brand chatter that clogs cultural discourse.

At Zinzin, we believe that creating powerful names is both a science, for which we have a rigorous, battle-tested process, and an art, for it is the art and poetry of great names that separate brands from their uninspired competition. Great names become brands that foster emotional engagement with their audience, and these are the names we are passionate about.

The Zinzin website has many features to help you get a handle on the naming process, including the Naming Guide and Manifesto PDFs available for free download.

Wordlab will continue to be a great free naming and branding resource for people and small companies who can’t afford to hire a naming firm. For companies in need of professional naming and branding services, Zinzin is here for you.

Join the conversation on Twitter by following @ZinzinLive.
