    People get paid thousands of dollars to do this, you might have a hard time having it taken seriously for free. Especially given that we know nothing about you, your business, your style, your apps, let alone your mission statement. Not trying to be anything but honest. :)

    Write down ten you like, and throw darts at it!

    I have to side with _mw_ on this one. My career is in advertising and marketing. Company names are not something to be arbitrarily created by a blind poll or suggestions by strangers. Once you decide on an acceptable name it must be searched legally to make sure there are no existing trademark or copyright infringments. It's an expensive proposition to develop a good company name.

    That said, many times a small company will slip under the radar with a name, or if it is a family name or a common word which can't be restricted you'd be okay, too.

    If you'd like a proposal, I could set you up with several firms whose business it is to name companies. It shouldn't cost you any more than $5k for the basics. Of course if you are a large multinational corporation you could expect to invest up to $500k, but that would include market research, focus groups, test markets, graphics development and standards as well as all legal registrations.

    not to mention, you'll need to be able to register something good for your domain name - which can be tough...
